NIGERIAN stand-up comedian, Francis Agoda who is better known by the sobriquet, I Go Die has joined the league of well-meaning Nigerians to contribute his quota to the fight against the pandemic by announcing that he is donating his mansion to the government to use as an isolation centre.
He made this known via his IG handle;
“….l’m donating my new Fapoh Royal Seal Mansion to the federal government of Nigeria to use it as an isolation centre.”
Also sharing a photo of the mansion, he wrote a lengthy post admonishing certain measures to be taken in order to overcome challenges especially in such a dire period.
The award-winning comedian said he took the decision to make the donation in view of the increasing cases of COVID-19 patients in Nigeria especially in his resident city, Lagos and the availability of only a few screening centres.
He went on to appeal to Nigerians to treat COVID-19 as a serious issue by reminding them that the virus has claimed over a million lives in various parts of the world.
In addition, he called on the government to alleviate the hardship being faced by the people during this period of lockdown by providing adequate palliatives for all Nigerians until the diseases becomes a thing of the past.
In a similar vein, the chairman of MMM(Made Men Music Goup), Ubi Franklin alongside some other sponsors recently launched a campaign to share food items to the needy.
A viral video captured the moments the food packages were delivered to the different persons. One video sees an elated beneficiary who could be tagged a modern Oliver Twist asking for more in a comic manner, “…if there was no mineral after the free food.”
