As part of efforts to cushion the effects of fuel and Naira scarcity, Ogun State Government has concluded arrangements to distribute 400,000 food items to vulnerable residents of the state.
The State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun who made this known at a Press conference in Abeokuta, said the newly appointed Social Investment Officers would begin the distribution of the food items today, Saturday 11th February.
Governor Abiodun expressed optimism that the social intervention programme would provide the needed succour to the people of the state, especially in the face of cash and fuel scarcity.
While apologizing to the people of the state for the hardship and inconveniences the naira swap policy had caused them, Governor Abiodun appealed to security agencies to handle the situation with more professionalism and deeper maturity.
He explained that his administration was working hard to tackle scarcity of naira, adding that his government was also taking steps to facilitate the adequate supply of petroleum products to designated filling stations across the state.
The Governor also said that the New Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba could be reached on telephone number 07025000383 whenever the need arises.
