Luqmon Balogun, Lagos


The Lagos State Government has commended Alausa Power Ltd, a subsidiary of Electron Energy Plc, for supporting Government in its collaborative efforts to prevent further spread of Coronavirus.

Receiving the donations, the Lagos Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr Olalere Odusote described Electron and others who had donated to the State as compatriots, whose gesture is worthy of emulation in the fight against the dreaded scourge.

Odusote assured that the donated items would be judiciously used to compliment the welfare package initiated by the Lagos State Government to ease the discomfort necessitated by the lockdown for the vulnerable in the State.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr Abdul Hammed Mustapha appreciated Electron for their camaraderie and warm donations.

He however reiterated the State Government commitment to ensure that the vulnerable and the less privileged are given necessary support during the restrictions of movement.

Continuous support
Speaking on the donation, the Principal/CFO Electron, Mr Deen Solebo, affirmed the readiness of his company to continue to support the State Government in its fight against the pandemic.

While urging residents to continue to observe the rules on social distancing and proper hygiene, he also called them to observe the restriction on movement as announced by the Federal Government.

Solebo said the gesture was to boost Government’s efforts to curb the spread of the deadly COVID-19 and bring relief to Lagosians whose ability to get food and other essentials were restrained due to the lockdown.
