He went further to state that all he seek for is a world without poverty, development that works, and providing quality care efficiently for individuals and families. He maintained that a world of hope, tolerance, social justice, where poverty has been overcome and every person has the opportunity to achieve his or her fullest potential would be the best place to live.

He said they decided to distribute the food items to make sure that it gets to the hand of the right people. He said: “You know that this is a trial period for all Nigerians, and the government. The government is working hard to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, but we must look for a way to assist them. The prices of food items has risen outrageously since the lock down order. So we decided to distribute the items in an organized way with security agents present, but what we saw is heart broken. People rushed out from everywhere around the community just to receive food. We are doing this from our own effort and out of our goodwill”.

Expressing their appreciation. One of the residents, Yusuf Eniola, said that the foundation always remember the community. He lampooned what they receive to share previously from Ojo local government, saying it was unbelievable.

He said: “What Easy Way is doing is not new to us. Last Christmas he was here to share us food. Valentine day he came too. Easy Way is helping us a lot in Ojo. When the government came what they gave us was six loaves of bread and 6 bags of rice. We could not even share it, because we don’t know how to share it. But look at what easy is doing we have rice, garri, beans, hand sanitizer, and nose covers. God will bless Easy Way for us”.

Mr. Anagolu urged the residents to have patience with the government, and obey all directives, maintaining that the lockdown would not be for ever.
