Fabenmedia Nigeria reports that following the distribution of cheques to 50 beneficiaries at the ‘Sanwoolu Listens Initiative,’ the Special Adviser at the Office of Civic Engagement, Lagos State Princess Aderemi Adebowale showered appreciation on the Executive Governor of Lagos, Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu.
The ‘Sanwoolu Listens Initiative’ is a social welfare initiative aimed at providing financial support to vulnerable residents in Lagos State, regardless of their religion or political affiliation.
The Governor, Heads of Ministries, Beneficiaries, Journalists from all walks of life, and a portion of the public attended the event, which had the theme “Taking Humanity To The Next Phase.”
The campaign, which began for the third time in August 2020, has benefited over 10,000 residents thus far, providing credibility to the beneficent nanny state.
In the words of the Special Adviser, she said
‘’The Office of Civic Engagement had continued to screen and shortlisted walk-in applications and nominees from various platforms in the public domain with beneficiaries emerging according to the degree and nature of their various financial challenges without any bias. The process of selecting the beneficiaries for the financial support was open and transparent, a committee within the office was set-up to interview and screen applicants to facilitate selection’’.
Princess Adebowale also talked up the role Governor Sanwoolu played in making the funds available for the beneficiaries
‘’By and large, it is imperative to note that the continued execution of this programme would not have been possible but for the approval and release of funds by our magnanimous and compassionate Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’’.
‘’Mr. Governor, on behalf of Lagosians, I wish to express my appreciation for being a listener with a humane heart. Your kind gesture, without any iota of doubt, will get a good number of our citizens back on their feet so that they could pay their taxes and contribute to the economic growth of our dear State, Princess Aderemi Adebowale concluded.
