ABEOKUTA - The General Overseer of Victory Life Bible Church, Apostle Lawrence Achudume has charged philanthropic organisations, religious bodies as well as spirited individuals to lend a helping  hand to the less privileged in the society.

The Clergyman also urged them to partner with the authorities by obeying the directives to cushion the effects of covid-19.

Achudume spoke while distributing some relief packages and a transformer to some villagers around the church's headquarters at Ajebo in Abeokuta, the State capital. 

Warning that the downtrodden in the society should not be left to suffer at a time like this, Apostle Achudume who also distributed  bags of rice to some police stations in Abeokuta advised politicians not to play politics with the unfortunate development  adding that funds released should be judiciously utilised because God will not  be happy with anyone who toys with the people's lives.

The cleric who saw the need for government functionaries to always provide the needed functional facilities posited that lack of basic health equipments add to pressures on the health workers as well as other stakeholders that are in the frontline services to curtail the outbreak.

Apostle Achudume, however, observed that the outbreak has suddenly created avenues for people of the world to seek the face of urgently urging members of the public to strictly comply with the stay-at-home directive which takes effect from 11pm this Friday in Ogun state. 

The religious leader also lauded the  government for the steps taken so far to contain the spread saying that the early diagnosis and prompt intervention by health personnel should be sustained in the handling of covid-19.

In their separate remarks, the Baale Lagbayun, Chief Nofiu Idowu BaaleAbule Nla/Palm Wine, Chief Abiodun Olojede and Chief Emmanuel Oguntoyinbo of Akinseku village lauded Apostle Achudume for donating the transformer and food items at this trying period in the country.

Also speaking, the  Baale of Abata village,  Chief Ramoni Sodeinde, Chief Gabriel Akanbi of Olaotan village and Chief Rasaki Abati of Atoku village said VLBC has been a shining light in the area since its establishment just as they charged other religious leaders to emulate Apostle Achudume adding that service to humanity is the main purpose of the church.
