In furtherance to efforts geared towards cushioning the effect of Covid-19 pandemic on members of the public and give back to the society, the Ogun State Internal Revenue Service (OGIRS) has donated some food items to selected orphanage homes in the State.
Representing the agency, the Tax Office Manager in Ijebu-Ode, Mr. Adeleke Odeogbola, hinted that palliatives were earlier approved for tax payers due to the pandemic’s adverse effect on the economy, individual, businesses and standard of living, saying the agency deemed it fit to associate and encourage the less privileged, to let them realise that they were not alone.
In their separate remarks, the representative, Eruobodo Center for Children with Special Needs and other Orphans, Ijebu-Ode and the Vice, Community of Ave Maria Children Home, Sagamu, Dele Odesanya and Sister Maria Coredeuatria, respectively, appreciated government’s gesture, calling on philanthropists in the society and other organisations to emulate the gesture.
