LEMU extends palliatives to rural communities in Lagos
No fewer than 3,000 people will benefit from the relief materials to be distributed to the needy and the poor by the Lekki Muslim Ummah (LEMU) on Sunday, May 10, this year.
A statement issued by the LEMU Publicity Secretary, Alhaji AbdulFattah Olajide, said the palliative materials which would be distributed in 10 rural communities in the Lekki environs, include 5kg bags of rice and face masks. The rural communities where the needy and the poor will be reached include Oniru waterside, Itedo, Ajah, Ogombo, Shangotedo, among others.
According to the statement, the LEMU President, Dr. Kamoru Omotosho said the gesture would ameliorate the economic crunch inflicted on the people by the lockdown necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Omotosho explained further that quite apart from the planned distribution of the relief items on Sunday, LEMU has also joined and contributed to the Muslim Coalition Against Covid-19 which is also distributing relief materials across the country.
Meanwhile, the LEMU Welfare Secretary, Alhaji Bayo Shonibare who is charged with the responsibility of distributing the relief materials has explained that the items would be distributed to the beneficiaries irrespective of their religious or ethnic background.
