Naira, fuel crises: We’ll share food packs to vulnerable Lagosians


By Nurat Uthman

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that vulnerable Lagosians that are highly impacted by the current naira and fuel scarcity will be given food to lessen the hardship currently witnessed by them.

Sanwo-Olu said this on Saturday during a live conference on the crises resulting in chaos across the country.

Speaking, the governor said his government is working very hard to provide palliative measures to lessen the burden being faced by vulnerable Lagosians.

“We have also since commenced the distribution of food packs, to the most vulnerable citizens, the people most impacted by this disruption in the supply of cash. 

“We will continue to highlight more vulnerable groups within our distribution channels who would benefit from the palliatives,” he added.

Reacting to the possibility of fare increment, Sanwo-Olu said they are in discussion with private transport operators to regulate fares bearing the difficult circumstances in which Lagosians have found themselves.

He, however, urged them to remain calm while the rollout of the palliatives is put in place.
