A member of Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu representing Eti-Osa constituency 02 has commended the efforts of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in preventing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the state.
Yishawu who made this commendation on Monday while speaking with newsmen, lauds the lockdown directives of President Muhammadu Buhari to curtail the COVID-19 spread in the country, especially in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja.
The Chairman House Committee on Budget and Economic Planning also commended members of the Assembly for contributing their quota to fight the Covid-19.
According to him, without doubt, this is a very difficult time for us, battling with the uncertainties that have come with the deadly COVID-19.
“Our State government has been on top of the matter to push back the impact of this lethal virus and we only need to adhere to the measures being put in place by our Governor and his team, in order to keep the situation under control.
“To curtail the spread of the disease, the federal government has taken a decision to restrict all movement, except for those on essential duties, for 2 weeks.
“It is challenging, but it is a sacrifice we must endure. As we do so, we must continue to keep our heads up and maintain the basic rules of proper hygiene and social distancing. We must do so to keep ourselves and families safe”, he added.
The lawmaker said apart from the hand sanitizers and other things distributed, “we will continue to look out for other forms of assistance we can render to you at this time.
“Please let us continue to pray, while looking out for our neighbours. Also continue to practise social distancing and observe good hygiene. Do call the emergency numbers if you have any concerns.
Yishawu finally appealed to Lagosians who have enough food to extend to their neighbours, saying helping one another should be a collective effort.
