Over 10,000 households receive FG’s rice palliative in Oyo

The Minister of Power, Bayo Adelabu, disclosed on Sunday that over 10,000 households in Oyo State have been provided with food palliatives by the Federal Government, including thousands of 25kg bags of rice.

He revealed this when speaking in Ibadan while handling the palliatives to people.

The minister for power, who represented the president, stated that the rice was from Tinubu to alleviate the suffering of people and improve their standard of living.

He clarified that the President is aware of the current challenges faced by Nigerians, assuring them that the difficulties are temporary and that citizens will persist in benefiting from the dividends of his administration.

“President Tinubu under his Food Security program, under the Renew Hope Agenda has decided to give us our share in this state. The palliative has no political cooperation but in furtherance of good governance.

“The rice belongs to every citizen, every resident of oyo state and in distribution we must be transparent that it touches every association, every group, every religious association, every traditional association, every ethnic association resident in Oyo State which is why we are provided to make it Ope today.”

“I want to urge people to continue to support the Tinubu administration. All we need from you is your continued prayers for God to guide us and ensure we take you to the desired destination.

“This is phase one of the food security as part of the renewed hope agenda of Tinubu, we shall be witnessing the distribution regularly, and as far as we get this thing from Abuja, we shall not hoard it but distribute it,” he said.

According to the minister, the beneficiaries include compound heads, known as Mogajis, market associations, the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, the Nigeria Union of Journalists, professional bodies, and students.
