Agboola, during the sharing of the food items to the residents of Kiribo, in Ese-Odo on Thursday said the palliative was important to suppress the effect of the sit-at-home order in the state.
The agriculturist said the pandemic provided a good opportunity for him to ensure that he put smile on the faces of his people like he had always loved to do.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some of the items shared includes; rice, pupuru, garri, noodles and other items like hand sanitizer, gloves and face masks.

“Today mark a great day in my life because I am able to put smile on thousands of my own people’s faces.
“I have always wanted to do something that would benefit the less privileged in the society; especially within my community (Kiribo) Ese odo local government.
“I thought of how the lockdown would affect my people and decided to give them some relief materials such as food items ,” he said.
Agboola said he was overwhelmed with the reception given to him by the five communities in the local government he visited.
“I thank God for this day and I appreciate the kind gestures and the warmth reception of His Royal Majesty, Oba Akinde Oduyi Ajayi the Alapaka of Kiribo and the entire Alapaka in council.
“I promise to continue to give back to the society and contribute to humanity at every point I am able to, so help me God”, he added.
