The Speaker said, “What we are doing today has nothing to do with politics, these food items of rice, beans, Semovita among others is for everyone, the would be beneficiaries have nothing to do with any political affiliation.
“COVID-19 is no respecter of race, sex or any political party, at this point in time, we must be committed to the well being of our people who could not go about their businesses because of the lockdown in the state.

“The proactive measures of the Gboyega Oyetola led administration has in no small way reduced the rate of contraction of the pandemic of Coronavirus in our dear State.
