BREAKING: FG Begin N20000 Cash Transfer In Lagos Says Sanwo Olu

The Federal Government has begun the conditional transfer of N20,000 in Lagos as part of efforts to reduce the effect of the coronavirus lockdown on residents of the state.

This was revealed on Friday night by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who said he received the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq in his office.

Over 160 cases of coronavirus have been recorded in Lagos State out of the over 300 infections reported in Nigeria.

Sanwo-Olu said the minister’s team was in Lagos to flag-off the conditional cash transfer and supply of relief food materials for the poor and vulnerable including the elderly, refugees, internally displaced persons, persons living with disabilities, petty traders, hawkers, labourers, amongst others.

Today, I received the Hon Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq who was in Lagos with her team to flag off the conditional cash transfer and supply of relief food materials for the vulnerable.

Our state is the epicenter of COVID-19 in Nigeria. We appreciate all the support we have received from the Federal Government. 

Again I appreciate President Muhammadu Buhari for his leadership and for his invaluable support. We will not rest until Lagos is free of COVID-19,” the governor tweeted.

The FG had said beneficiaries of its conditional cash transfer had received it in Federal Capital Territory Abuja and some other states across the country.

Similarly, Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State said on Friday that he received the minister of humanitarian affairs in his office in Abeokuta.

“The Honourable Minister handed over five truckloads of rice and one truckload of vegetable oil, as part of the relief materials that the Federal Government is donating to the state for further distribution to the poor, vulnerable and elderly.

“She gave her word to speed up the process of the FG’s cash transfer to the less privileged in Ogun State, in order to ensure that these beneficiaries remain well during the COVID-19 lockdown period, which was directed for the common good of everyone,” Abiodun wrote on Twitter.

According to PUNCH reports Abuja, Lagos, and Ogun are currently on lockdown based on the directive of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) as part of efforts to curb the circle of transmission of the novel virus in the country.

Man Arrested after killing a proustitute for ritual.. See Photos.A man has been arrested for killing a prostitute for ritual purposes at his house located inside Corporation Estate, Mile 12, Lagos.

According to reports, the unidentified suspect revealed that a herbalist, Segun, told him to kill the victim at exactly 12 midnight and bring her private parts.

An eyewitness said: “Around 11:30pm, my friend and I were outside our gate because there was no light.

This dude walked past us with a girl and 30 minutes later, we heard a noise from the girl twice, shouting, “help me, please help me” and the noise died down.

A man later walked up to us and asked if we heard any noice and we said yes. The man said he knows where it came from, so we ran to the main gate to tell the security guards that there should be no movement in or out of the estate.

As the suspect was walking up to the gate to leave, we stopped him and told him that we heard a noise, but he initially said he does not know anything about it.

I then moved close to him to tell him that we saw him when he entered with a girl and asked what happen between them. That was when he said that they had a misunderstanding and have settled it.

I, however, insisted that we need to see the girl and hear from her if all is well. We then walked him back to his house and upon entering the compound, we saw lot of blood on the floor and a knife.

He then confessed that he wanted to use the deceased for ritual and it was only her private parts that he was instructed to bring.”

Army Day: Soldiers Clean Up Ikeja As It Celebrates

Residents and businessmen at Ipodo and Olowu areas in Ikeja on Saturday morning woke up to see the presence of hundreds of military men cleaning up the environment and clearing their drainages.

Majority of the soldiers were dressed in branded white vests and military camouflage trousers with the inscription NADCEL/COSAT 2019 while a few others wore complete military camouflage.

They were all kitted with rain boots, hand gloves, mouth/nose guard and working with shovels, rakes, brooms with wheelbarrows carting away the refuse to standby compactors.

The soldiers who came from the 9th Brigade, Nigeria Army Cantonment, Ikeja were led by the Commander of the Brigade, Brigadier-General Nasir Jega who represented the General Officer Commanding 81Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Sanni Yusuf.

Speaking with the press, Jega said the sanitation exercise is part of the activities to mark the 2019 Nigerian Army Day Celebration which is an annual event, the exercise he said was also going on in two other locations in Lagos namely, Ikoyi and Ojo.

“It is part of the task from the Army Chief of Staff that on this day we should go round and carry out this exercise so as to promote civil-military relations with civilians and communities around us.

On why Ipodo/ Olowu was picked for the exercise, the commander said it is because the area is close to the Cantonment, “Ipodo is a little bit closer to the cantonment and we chose it in order to relate with the community that is closer to us so that we have very good civil/military relations with them”, he said.

Jega imployed everybody to continue with the sanitation exercise so as to keep the surroundings clean, “they should be coming out to have their surroundings clean, having a good and clean environment will foster good health for everybody”, he said.

A businessman who owns a shop in the area, Mr. Ogbonna Onwuzuruike from Imo who said he feels good and happy about the cleaning stated that as he came to open his shop he met the military doing environment sanitation.

“I am happy to see them come out enmasse to do the cleanup exercise, I feel so good and happy about it, it is not their duty, this is to show us good example that we businessmen should clean our environment and make Lagos clean.

“It is good for us to continue with the trend, it is good for we businessmen to keep our environment clean,” he said.

Onwuzuruike also said he would want the state government to reintroduce the monthly environmental sanitation exercise so as to keep Lagos clean.

LASG SAYS__ WE DIDN’T RE-INTRODUCE ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION

The Lagos State Government on Tuesday debunked rumours making the rounds on the airwaves and social media that it has re-introduced the monthly environmental sanitation exercise and vehicular restriction, urging residents to ignore it in its entirety. In a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of the Environment, Mr Biodun Bamgboye, the government emphasized that no restriction would take place on the last Saturday in this month of June or any other month until otherwise decided. He said there was no basis for the apprehension by some people that they might have their business or social engagements disrupted by the vehicular restriction between the hours of 7 and 10am which normally signposted such environmental sanitation exercises. The Permanent Secretary added that one of the proactive measures undertaken by the governor on his first day in office was to sign an Executive Order that bordered on declaration of zero tolerance for indiscriminate dumping of refuse all over the state and did not include restriction for environmental sanitation exercise. Bamgboye explained that what the governor said about the monthly environmental sanitation was that if indeed there was a need to reintroduce the exercise which was cancelled by the last administration, it would be with the popular support of majority of residents of Lagos. He added that the resolve of the present administration was to ensure that all machinery were put in motion to have a cleaner, safer and sustainable environment for all the residents.
