NIESV LAGOS DONATES PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENTS TO LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT
The NIESV Lagos ‘The Very Branch, led by the Chairman ESV. Adedotun Bamigbola FNIVS, FRICS, paid a courtesy visit to the Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sawanolu on 23rd April, 2020 at the Lagos State House, Marina. The visit was to demonstrate support for the Lagos State Government and our soldiers on the frontlines (Health workers) in the fight against COVID-19. The Governor was ably represented by First Lady, Dr. (Mrs) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu MD, who received the critical Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) presented by “The Very Branch” to the medical force of the Lagos State Government. The PPEs donated included 60pieces Protective gowns personnel use at Isolation centres across the state and 100 pieces of reusable high quality Face shields.
The Chairman appreciated Mr. Governor and his team for the good works and the leadership role he has played so far in the fight against the novel Covid-19 Pandemic which has been acknowledged far and wide across the country. He also added that the The Very Branch produced an awareness short-clip video based on guidelines provided by the World Health Organization (W.H.O) and NCDC to sensitize her members and the general public at the onset of the lockdown period, which we believe Mr.Governor and the First Lady have seen.
The First Lady of Lagos State, Dr. (Mrs) Ibijoke Sanwoolu who recieved the delegation and the PPEs on behalf of the government, appreciated the institution for the visit and generous donation towards the fight against the deadly COVID-19. She further praised the thoughtfulness behind the focus of the items donated saying it is the “re-direct” in the calibre of support which Mr. Governor has talked about, observing that the COVID-19 war is not yet over. She added that the Lagos State Government will not rest on her oars until a complete stop is put to the spread of the deadly COVID -19 pandemic.
Present at the meeting with the First Lady of Lagos State were members of the Exco and the Chair, Welfare Sub-committee of The Very Branch.
