LAGOS THANKS DONORS, SEEKS MORE SUPPORT FOR ABULE-ADO-SOBA FIRE VICTIMS

The Lagos State Government appreciates individuals and organisations that have heeded its call to support victims of the Abule-Ado-Soba explosion. No fewer than 20 people died and property worth billions of Naira destroyed in the March 15 disaster.

During a visit to the explosion site and adjoining areas to assess the extent of carnage, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu set up a N2 billion Emergency Relief Fund to provide relief for the victims of the incident and released N250 million towards the cause.

State Governments and Corporate Organisations have donated to the relief fund. Dangote Group and Zenith Bank have contributed N100million each to the Fund.

The fact-finding Committee constituted by Governor Sanwo-Olu to determine the cause of the explosion and proffer recommendations to prevent a reoccurrence will soon complete its assignment.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government solicits further support from wealthy and well-meaning individuals as well as private and public institutions to rebuild the community because the financial resources required to restore Abule-Ado-Soba are enormous.

The Abule-Ado Emergency Relief Fund accounts are domiciled in three banks: Polaris Bank – 4030017510; Zenith Bank – 1017184516; and Guaranty Trust Bank – 0568615688.
