“My aim is to pay back to my community once again as part of my leadership style to support the state, federal and local government.

“I packaged three items for the people; Rice, Garri (Cassava Flour) and Fresh Fish. Bamgbose said

On sharing formula, Hon. Bamgbose said; “The three food pack is presented to just one person/family as a complete package to enable them feed for a fees days at least. My focus was also on the less privileged, aged and widows. Although I was also moved to give youths too who lamented serious hunger this COVID-19 period due to the lockdown.”

Mrs. Serah Jesuvivi one of the beneficiaries thanked Hon. Bamgbose for his humanitarian and philanthropic support to Badagry community via the stimulus pack saying this is not the first time. He has been doing it before, especially during festive seasons. She added.

“I had nothing to eat at home, I was sited thinking of what to eat when a friend told me that Bamgbose is around, when i got here to my surprise, i was presented Garri, Rice and Fish. I am very happy and I pray God continue to bless Bamgbose always.” Serah said

“May God continue to bless this man, hunger took me out of home and he just packed by my side and asked me to take, he is an angel” said anonymous along Owode road

Bamgbose who had compassion on the crowd that stormed his Badagry residence, encouraged them that this time of hardship and hunger will soon pass over.

“I understand how we all feel, please as part of government directive and WHO precautions, let us adhere advice by washing and always disinfect our hands, be your brother keeper by maintaining social distancing, use your nose mask and comply with the regulations by Staying At Home.

Published

on

The Apc lagos state chapter have have called on security agency to check mate and bring to book the unscruptilous activities of the pdp governorship candidate Mr Adediran Olajide popularly know as jandor on the citizen of lagos state as he campaigned across the state .

The spokeman of Apc , hon seye oladejo in a press release made avsilable to gidinews .com ststed that :

Our attention has been drawn to the reign of terror unleashed on innocent and law abiding citizens of Lagos state by the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming national elections, Jide Adediran, otherwise known as Jandor in the course of his campaign in Surulere Local Government Council of the state.
The incident left in its wake several maimed victims and three people reportedly sent to their untimely death.
We condemn in strong terms the unwarranted and unprovoked resort to violence on the citizens of the state in the name of electioneering campaign.
Lagos cherishes it’s enviable status as the safest state in the country which has been as a result of long running and painstaking investment in security through the provision of the wherewithal and incentives for security agencies.
We view this attack as a ploy to instill fear in the hearts of voters as we count down to the elections.
It’s pathetic to note that a candidate seeking to govern the state could be seen actively promoting anarchy and violence to disrupt the peace of the citizens.
It will be recalled that the suspect has been busy in the past days crying wolves in the media as he perfected his evil plans which manifested at his rally.
While we can imagine the untold misery and frustration that his faltering campaign might have visited on him, it ought not to result in the thirst for the blood potential voters.
We hereby call on the law enforcement agencies to thoroughly investigate the incident , bring the culprits to book and beef security across the state with the obvious desperation of the opposition PDP in order to forestall a reoccurrence.
We urge Lagosians to remain calm and law abiding as the state government remains irrevocably committed to its onerous duty of ensuring the safety of lives and properties of all and sundry.
