He spoke on Tuesday at the council’s secretariat in Badagry during the distribution of another round of COVID-19 food palliatives and rendering of financial support by the local government to the elderly, widows and the vulnerable.
Onilude, who was represented by the Secretary to the Local Government, Mr. Kamorudeen Ajape, said the nonchalant attitude of the residents towards the observance of basic hygiene rules to stop the spread of Coronavirus was becoming worrisome.
“It is frightening that our people seem to have completely forgotten about the pandemic. We no longer take preventive measures to protect ourselves. We no longer wear face masks, wash hands or use hand sanitisers to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” he said
Onilude said as a responsible and responsive government, “we cannot fold our arms and allow our people to ignorantly open themselves up to diseases and death”
