The member, House of Representatives, Representing Ondo East/West, Hon. Abiola Makinde and his Wife Dr. Rhoda Makinde, Convener DROMI, has jointly launched a Food Palliative Drive for residents of Ondo City.
In a press statement jointly signed by the Makindes, they stated that they have donated the sum of 5 million naira to the project. The statement reads;
“We must confront these days of health and economic fear and testing, not passively accepting or succumbing to the challenges brought by Covid-19 epidemics. These can and should be days of renewed worship, re-dedication, friendship, and love. We must forget about our political affiliations, while standing up for others in serious need.
We must love one another and be kind to one another as God in Christ has been merciful to us. Ekimogun ijama!
Hence, I’ve directed that a team be setup to collect donated food items so we can share to the less privileged. My wife, Dr Rhoda Makinde (DROMI) and I have just donated N5million worth of food items to this program, specifically for the less fortunate constituents living within Ondo East/West.”
They also enjoined well meaning sons and daughters of Ondo to be part of this project.
“We therefore urge our brothers and sisters, home and abroad, to join us with your support. Details of where to send your food items donations will be uploaded online tomorrow Thursday April 2nd.”
