Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, on Sunday denied reports that palliatives meant to cushion the effect of COVID-19 pandemic were deliberately hoarded by governors.

He spoke at the Church service marking the 3rd Year Enthronement of the Bishop of Owo Diocese, Anglican Communion, Rt Revd. Dr.Stephen Fagbemi held at the All Saints Church, Idasen, Owo.

Governor Akeredolu, who is the Chairman of the Southwest Governors’ Forum disclosed that the insistence on official flag-off ceremony by the Coalition Against Covid-19 before the distribution was largely responsible for the delay in distributing the items to the people.

It would be recall that during the End SARS protest which was said to have been hijacked, many warehouses where COVID-19 palliatives were stored were attacked by hoodlums.

He said Ondo State was saved from the looting spree due to the continuous distribution of the palliatives.

The Governor revealed that states where the palliatives were warehoused, were also waiting for the donation of the remaining items and flag-off by the CA-COVID-19.
