As a way of providing succour to the residents and indigenes of Otan Ayegbaju, in Boluwaduro local government area of Osun State, as a result of Corona virus pandemic, stakeholders from the town have formed an intervention group named, ‘Otan COVID-19 Response Team’.
In a statement made available to the media, Dr. Segun Aina, representing elders and leaders of the community, states that the “Otan Ayegbaju COVID-19 Response Team is expected to provide an emergency relief service and sensitization for the people residing in Otan Ayegbaju.”
The COVID -19 Response Team, which has already commenced operation and generating huge support and contributions is a voluntary organisation. The group is expected to create effective awareness to promote prevention of COVID-19 within the community.
Other mandates of the group include sourcing relief packages and/or funds for purchase of such items as food & health facilities for people within Otan Ayegbaju.
The team will also interface and collaborate with other communities around Otan and the Boluwaduro Local Govt. The team of seventeen headed by Dr. Shade Adeyemi-Balogun has some other indigenes drawn from various areas of specialization and representing different interest groups.
However, since this initiative is part of efforts to compliment government activities aimed at curtailing the spread of the dreaded corona virus pandemic, the Otan COVID-19 Response Team is expected to engage with and attract benefit and support for Otan Ayegbaju from programs of the various levels of government, its agencies and potential individual/corporate benefactors.
