Over one thousand and five hundred women in Osun have been benefited from Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari palliative programme.
Distributing the palliative on behalf of Mrs Buhari, Osun State First Lady, Mrs Kafayat Oyetola, said the palliative was part of efforts of mitigating the effects of Covid-19 on women in the state.
The First Lady, who doled out empowerment equipment to artisans under Future Assured Programme, FAP, initiated to help the less privileged during this COVID-19 pandemic, said government would continue to design programmes that would have direct impact on the citizens.
