Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on Friday constituted a nine-member palliative committee on COVID-19 to deliberate and make recommendations to the government on how to cushion the harsh economic impact of the lockdown on residents.

The committee members are Morenike Alaka, Alex Kalejaye, Morinsola Olanipekun and Akin Olotu as the Chairman.

Other members are Abayomi Eniayewu, Roseline Okafor, Jacob Adebo and Festus Ogunbodede as the Secretary.

Speaking in Akure on the initiative, Mr Akeredolu said the committee became necessary in order to find a plausible solution to the enormous burden placed on the people due to government’s measures put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
