Nollywood star, Mike Godson has taken to social media to beg Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for aid, saying that he had just eaten his last meal and has no hope of when another will come amid the lockdown in Lagos state.
In an open letter addressed to the Vice president, the Nollywood Actor asked if the palliatives released by the Federal Government to cushion the effects of Lockdown will reach Lagos State.
He also thanked the government efforts at fighting COVID-19 but lamented that there is too much hunger in the land. Mike added that he would have loved to visit Osinbajo if the latter was in Lagos in order to eat in his house.
He wrote: “Your Excellency the vice president Federal Republic of NIGERIA. Dear sir, My name is ‘Mike Godson’ I’m a Nigerian Actor with the Nigerian film industry.
“Sir, We have been instructed by the federal and state government to strictly avoid social gatherings and stay in our various houses, due to the spread of the virus. I must commend the federal and state government levels for the aggressive measures put in place to ensure the country’s safety.
“But Sir, the hunger in the land has finally reached my house. As I write this letter, I have just finished eating my last pot of soup and there’s no hope for another one as my source of income has been put on hold until further notice.
“Your Excellency Sir, I have no more money to feed. If you were in Lagos, I would have walked straight to your house and ask for food because I stay in the same estate with you.
“I know I will be arrested by hundreds of mobile police officers in front of your residence. But Sir, as long as I see you and ask for food to eat, I don’t mind being punished for hunger at this point.
“Finally Sir, I just want to know if the relief packages sent out in envelopes by the Federal Government will reach this side of Lagos, because your Excellency Sir, the Hunger on the way will be more than corona virus O! Please help O! Thank you, Sir.”
