Ooni of Ife donates drone sprinkler and three motorized fumigators to Lagos state government in support of COVID-19 fight
The Ooni of Ife is one of the most popular and powerful monarchs in Yorubaland as he is currently rated among the top 10 richest kings in Nigeria. Seeing him reach out to Lagos state at this crucial period is heartwarming because the state currently has the highest number of recorded COVID-19 cases in Nigeria.
According to reports, the monarch handed over one large-size drone-sprinkler fumigator to Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos state, to be used for proper aerial fumigation. In the reports, the monarch stated that these fumigators were fabricated locally and are environmental-friendly. He reportedly mentioned that this machinery converts liquid sanitizer into a fog that stays longer and travels faster in a beneficial way to disinfect large communities.
It was further stated in the reports that the Ooni of Ife, said Lagos state is the epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemic in the nation, needs adequate support in containing the fast-spreading virus.

On receiving the fumigator devices, Governor Sanwo-Olu reportedly expressed his appreciation to the monarch while describing him as a notable icon and an enabler when it comes to governance in the Nation. He further stated that the Ooni is not only assisting the government with donations but also helping to educate people in rural areas about the severity of the Coronavirus pandemic as a reality and not a myth.
Just as the Ooni of Ife has done, it would be nice to see other popular and rich Kings in Nigeria show their support to state governments in the battle against COVID-19 pandemic across the nation.
