As part of efforts aimed at curtailing the spread of the coronavirus in Ekiti State, the State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has named an eight-person management committee for the COVID-19 Pandemic Support Account recently set up by the state government.
The account was opened specifically to receive donations from corporate bodies, philanthropists and well-meaning members of the society, who are willing to support the state government’s efforts to combat COVID-19. The expected support will also go towards providing palliatives for vulnerable persons in the state.
The committee was set up in line with the governor’s commitment to transparency and accountability.
Members of the committee are:
- Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, Secretary to the State Government – Chairman
- Mrs Margaret Fagboyo, Special Adviser, Development Partnerships- Secretary
