COVID-19: CACOVID sets record straight on Palliatives to Oredo Constituency

The Private Sectors Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) has refuted claims by Omoregie Ogbeide Ihama, a member representing Oredo Federal Consistency, claiming credits to the palliatives which were distributed by CACOVID.

In the report, he stated that besides sponsoring bills and motions for the good of Nigerian, he will continue to champion the course of improving the lives of the people.

He also added that since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, he has personally given out food items and networked with other agencies of government to attract the relief materials to the people of Oredo constituency.

The statement was made while supervising the distribution of the palliatives which had CACOVID logo plastered all over them.

However, CACOVID insisted that the palliatives are a part of its efforts to feed 1.7million households in the 774 local government areas of the country. An initiative which has kicked off in the following states: Bauchi, Jigawa, Kogi, Anambra, Ogun, Kebbi, Ekiti, Borno, Yobe Enugu, Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa, and Edo state.

CACOVID is a private-sector alliance tasked with pulling resources across industries to provide technical and operational support while providing funding and building advocacy through aggressive awareness. So far, the coalition has built and revamped testing and isolation centres to strengthen the response capacity of states.

CACOVID have also supported the NCDC with over 300,000 test kits and personal protective equipment (PPE).To join CACOVID in the fight against coronavirus, Call 09045531044 or email [email protected]. You can also follow the coalition on all platforms @cacovidng for more information.
