Osun commences food distributi­on ahead of Eid-el-kabir


Aof this year’s eidel-kabir celebratio­n, the Government of the State of Osun has commenced the distributi­on of food support for vulnerable citizens across the State.

The state government started feeding 30,000 poor and vulnerable citizens across the State, since March 2021.

Speaking during the flaghead off of the distributi­on on Friday, the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji, restated the commitment of the Oyetola-led government to implementi­ng people-oriented programmes. He added that the people of the State were at the heart of the administra­tion’s welfare interventi­ons.

“For over three months

now, the government of the State of Osun has provided food items for the vulnerable in the state. It is the belief of this government that it is not enough to just pay salaries and construct roads. The masses should also be considered for some direct benefits from the government. What we are doing is so that the common man could have a

feel of the government they voted into power.

“This government is focused on its commitment­s, and this particular distributi­on is strategic. It is the government’s intention that the distributi­on intersects with the Ileya festival so that there is celebratio­n across different social strata”, Oyebamiji said.
