OYOGist.com has learned that the Chief Press Secretary to the Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa, has stated palliatives are now at different zones in the state – Iseyin, Ogbomosho, Saki, Oke-Ogun, and the distribution at those zones will begin Tuesday or Wednesday.
The spokesman, who revealed the information this morning while speaking on a radio programme aired on Premier 93.5 FM, added that the palliatives are already on ground and would be distributed as planned this week.
He said: “As a people-oriented government, we didn’t want to follow the political arrangement we met on ground because we know that this virus is a leveler and does not understand politics. That is what has been causing delay all this while.
“This time around, we are very much ready to begin the distribution and we will ensure they get to the people we are looking at.”
He however, added that the much-expected palliatives will get to the people of Ibadan over the weekend.
