donated food items to aged residents of Ede town in a bid to ameliorate sufferings caused by restriction meant to prevent spread of coronavirus in the state.

The food items worth over N1 million were given to the beneficiaries, who are mostly elderly men and women, as parts of corporate social responsibility of the workers to the residents of the host community of the institution.

Speaking with newsmen, the coordinator of the group, Dr Samson Oluga, said restriction of movement had caused untold hardship on many residents.

He said the donation was meant to cushion the effects.

Olasunkanmi said, "We have realised that the lockdown imposed by the government to curb of the spread of coronavirus has brought negative impact on the  people,  especially the daily income earners.

"Many of them cannot feed themselves and members of their family because they don't have any other means of livelihood, if they don't go out to work daily.

"So, the gesture is part of our corporate social responsibility. Our members felt it is right to reach out to people by providing food items for them.

"We really appreciate our members for their selflessness. They have been responsible and responsive towards this cause. We are reaching out to these people who are most vulnerable within the Institution's environment."

He further explained that some ex students of the institution also contributed towards the cause, adding that the first set of beneficiaries were the aged and pregnant women.

He then assured that the second phase of the distribution would cater for other categories of the vulnerable residing within Ede town.

In his remarks, the Rector of the institution Dr. John Adekolawole, who was represented by the Deputy Rector Administration, Alhaji Isiaka Adelabu, commended residents for the hospitality extended to the staff of the institution.

The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Sola Lawal, in his address, also commended the beneficiaries for comporting themselves in an orderly manner.

He also lauded senior staff of the institution that donated the items, stressing that the gesture would assist government in providing for the needs of the people during the period they were asked to stay at home.
