Church Distributes N20 Million Worth Of Facemasks

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Friday says it distributed N20 million facemasks in six states in the country in the wake of coronavirus pandemic in 2020.


Mr Christian Onorughe, the Welfare and Self Reliance Manager of the church for Cross River and Akwa Ibom disclosed this in Calabar at a media roundtable organised by the church.


“It’s worth over N20 million facemasks the Church distributed. I got 4000 cartoons for the two states, Cross River and Akwa Ibom and we also have managers in Lagos, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Benin,” he said.


According to him, it was part of the church’s humanitarian coronavirus services, which is one of its fundamental objectives.


He said that the church had the culture of rendering humanitarian services to its host communities and humanity in general.


Saraki Breaks Silence

Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has called for a stakeholders meeting to find solution to the problems of insecurity across the country.


Saraki made the suggestion in Minna, Niger State on Friday while fielding questions from newsmen after leading the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Reconciliation and Search Committee to former President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida at his uphill residence.


“It (insecurity) is of great concern to all of us as I have always said it is a matter that should not just be left to the government.


“It is a matter that both the ruling party, opposition and elder statesmen should all meet and contribute to find solution to the problem so that we can successfully address the problem,” Saraki said.
