…hails Obaseki’s response to COVID-19 pandemic….

FIC Report (Edo State) – The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has donated two motorised modular fumigators to the Edo State Government in support of the government’s response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.

The Elejesi of Ife land, Oba Babatunde Awosunle, who led other members of Ooni COVID-19 team, to the Government House in Benin, announced the donation.

Speaking on behalf of the members of the Ooni COVID-19 team, Director, Media and Public Affairs, Ooni’s Palace, Comr. Moses Olafare, said the Ooni of Ife in his wisdom has deemed it fit to complement Governor Godwin Obaseki’s brilliant response to the pandemic COVID-19. The media director added that the two Motorised Modular Fumigators (MMFs) were invented and fabricated at the palace of the Ooni of Ife, to complement the effort of state governments in a collaborative fight against the dreaded disease.

He said the monarch is ready to join forces with the state government on campaigns to fumigate different flashpoints in the state, noting that the exercise would be supported by drone service.

Another member of the Ooni COVID-19 Team, Princess Kemi Fadojutimi, assured that the active agent used for the fumigation is not harmful to humans.

Receiving the items, Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu, thanked the Ooni of Ife for the generous donation, applauding the fact that the fumigators are manufactured locally.
