The general overseer of the Resurrection Praise Ministries For Africa, Archbishop Samson Benjamin has urged the federal government to use the N21 billion donation by the European Union as palliative measures for the masses. Benjamin who stated this when his ministry visited and shared food items worth huge amounts of money to the needy in Ajeromi Ifelodun local government area of the state said the palliative package was to complement the efforts of the government in reaching out to the masses.
He said using part of the EU donations as palliative measures would go a long way in alleviating poverty and ensuring people obey the stay-at-home order during this period of crises in the society. “I hope that the €50 million which amounts to N21billion donated by the EU on Tuesday will be used largely for palliative measures for the masses. “This will enable them to obey the stay at home order and social distancing directive to prevent further spread of the disease,” he said.
Benjamin who is also, President, African Economic Empowerment Initiative and Foundation for World Peace and Conflict Resolution said his ministry decided to donate food items to the masses in order to encourage them to obey the stay-at-home directive by the federal government.
