As the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to hurt the populace, especially the vulnerable and underprivileged in the society, the Committee of Dynamic Elites (CODE) Igboho & The Landmark Group (TLG), on Friday, reached out to hundreds of residents in Oorelope local government with food products.

The groups, in an intervention that is worth close to N1 million, also distributed face masks and hand sanitisers.

The two groups, which have as members indigenes and well-wishers of the local government from all walks of life, organised the emergency relief outreach programme with donations from members across two WhatsApp platforms, stating that the relief package was meant to complement government efforts in bringing succour to the people whose incomes had been dwindled by the partial lockdown in the state.

Each of the four zones in the local government, namely; Modeke, Obaago, Oseke and Igbope, sent representatives who took delivery of the palliative materials including rice, vegetable oil, Milo, sanitizers and other consumables

At the event held inside the ultramodern Igboho Town Hall, with strict adherence to the existing guidelines on preventing the spread of the virus, the leader of the team and chairman of The Landmark Group, Counsellor Ayo Adekunle, said the intervention was the first in the series of the distribution of palliatives.

Also speaking at the event, the caretaker chairman of Oorelope local government, Hon. Adesola Yaqub Tasoolo, who is equally a member of the groups, appreciated members of the two groups for the laudable initiative and collaboration to provide relief to the people of the local government.
