COVID-19: Obasa Increases Food Support Programme In Lagos

As part of the set of activities to cushion the effect of the lockdown necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa has continued to sustain his promise as regards the feeding welfare of Lagosians in this period.

Obasa who had earlier distributed food packages containing rice, water, noodles and basic cooking ingredients, as well as safety kits to Lagosians, has taken his welfare programme a step further by ensuring the provision of breakfast bread to Lagosians especially across zones in Agege.

Over 26,000 loaves of bread were distributed to vulnerable Lagosians in Agege and across the Lagos West Senatorial District on the day 1 of the breakfast feeding programme on Saturday, 4th of April.

The programme moved on to its day 2 today as thousands of loaves of bread have been distributed within Agege, Orile-Agege and other zones within the area as a way of providing breakfast relief for the people.

The Speaker has also promised ‘Obasa Breakfast Bread’ will continue to be a consistent effort to reduce the hunger effect of the lockdown on the people as the distribution will continue throughout this period between the hours of 7:00 am to 9:00 am at regular daily intervals.

“We understand that this lockdown may have its effect on the people, especially the vulnerable. However, it is important that we find a way to help each other through this period by providing food, which is the basic need for the survival of man. This initiative will continue for the period of this lockdown as we continue to target feeding the vulnerable”, the Speaker said.
