Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised to give cash support to the very poor in the state.
Sanwo-Olu, who stated this while giving an update on the state’s efforts aimed at containing Coronavirus, said that raw food would be delivered to churches, mosques and market leaders for onward delivery to the masses, promising that the state government would continue to work in the interest of the citizens.
He further stated that all the vehicles impounded from March 1, 2020, would be released freely to their owners, but warned that the state government would not tolerate disobedience to orders around the lockdown and that lawless residents would be dealt with by security agencies.
Sanwo-Olu said: “We are discharging nine patients – three females and six males, who have tested negative in two consecutive test readings. They are now free to be reunited with their families. This will now bring the total number of discharged cases to 70. (Text and photo courtesy Guardian)
