The government of Lagos State led by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has denied claims that it was planning to deny the one-legged pure water seller lady of the N25 Million donated for her through Go-fund-me on the social media.
The rumour was refuted by the Lagos State Honourable Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso while answering reporters’ questions on Star FM early Thursday morning.
Mr. Omotoso stated categorically that the State government has no plans whatsoever of denying the one-legged pure water seller of her huge donation which was contributed to her by well-meaning Nigerians.
He stated that all the State government has done is to ensure that the 26-year old amputee remains unmolested and very safe to do whatever she intends to do with the money that she has so far raised in Lagos.
He also informed that the State government had handed her over to her Kogi community in Lagos as well as Irede Foundation to guarantee her safety.
Omotoso stated that she is free to set up her dream supermarket store in Lagos State since it was here in Lagos that fortune smiled on her..
“That is a confirmation Lagos State is a land of hope and opportunities,” the Information and Strategy Commissioner asserted.
