Fayemi added that the Ekiti Covid-19 Response Resource Mobilisation Committee held its inaugural meeting yesterday and made several concrete steps. “Chief Afe Babalola set the ball rolling with a N100m donation and 800 bags of rice to the Food Bank. We are grateful”. Fayemi had last week appointed Babalola, former Governors Segun Oni and Ayodele Fayose and 44 others as menbers of the committee.
