REJOINDER: Obafemi Owode and Palliative Distribution; a Mis-information by CDA Chairman, Adesan Mowe

It is indeed indisputable  that truth is eternally sacred; it is on that note that we consider it imperarive to put issues in proper  perspective amid half truth and misinformation.

Obafemi Owode Local Government, under the able leadership of Amb. Ogunsola Adesina Lanre, began the distribution of Subsidy Removal Palliatives to cushion the effect on the increase in the price of commodities as a result of fuel subsidy removal, on 26th September 2023,  to three sections that made up of the Council Area, namely, Obafe, Owode and Oba.

All groups were equally represented in the stakeholders' meeting and committee set up by the government to monitor the distribution across wards, villages, communities and towns  within the local government. The groups include Traditional Rulers, Baales, Religious Body, Community Development Associations, Youths, Security agencies, Market Men and Women as well as  People living with Disability.

However,  and in utter astonishment,  a video went viral with obvious and deliberate notion to  blackmail  the government  and denigrate its efforts. 

As a responsive government of Obafemi Owode, the Information Department, captured the responses of Engr. Timothy Agboola, CDA chairman, and Adesan Mowe at a meeting with some stakeholders in that area, where he regretted the actions as he failed   to seek  necessary information on a bag of 10kg rice sent to him for delivery to a disabled who could not be available during distribution, as some others have collected in his area from IMAMS' CANS', YOUTHS, MARKET MEN AND WOMEN, BAALES, POLING UNITS and others.

In this regard, he therefore, urged  people to disregard his initial submission on palliative gifts. While the Executive Chairman, Obafemi Owode Local Government admonished all and sundry to disregard any information against the distribution as method  adopted is being  adjudged the best,  as all stakeholders involved are very transparent.

"We want to put it straight that at no time or place that  any community or group was given one 10kg bag of rice as their share of the relief materials as mischievously displayed by the CDA Chairman.

"I, therefore, urge the general public to please disregard the false information,  being peddled by enemies of Government and opposition elements,  with the aim to rubbish laudable efforts of the Governor of Ogun State, His Excellency, Prince Dr. Dapo Abiodun to bring succour to the needy in our society", the Chairman said.

Amb.Ogunsola further assured the people of more impacts of government in no distance time. 

Lending  their voices to condemn the propaganda and malicious content are: Mr.Oyelakin Lawrence, Zonal CDC Chairman, Obafemi Owode LG, Engr. Ayeni Funsho, General Secretary, Ogun Central CDC, Chief Mrs. Ogunleye Keji, Iyaloja Asese, Mowe, Mr. Gafari Adeyemi, Chairman, Adesan CDC, Dr.Adeleye Saheed, Muslim Community, Mowe, and Engr. Timothy Agboola Chairma, Bright Star, Adesan CDA.
