FOAASU celebrates Children’s day in Grand style amidst COVID-19 pandemic, gives palliatives to the community.
It is a heartwarming event as Federation of Oyan, Asi, Asaba Students’ Union, (FOAASU), gathered at the headquarters to celebrate the 2020 children’s day in grand style amidst COVID-19 pandemic.
The student Union body who is accustomed to celebrating children’s day yearly at the capital town, Oyan, refused to let the pandemic stop her in the celebration this year.
FOAASU in her attempt to mark the year’s children’s day and give back to the community within the 3 townships, viz Oyan, Asi and Asaba devised another method to mark the yearly celebration.
The method deployed was to go from door to door in sharing love and celebrating with the children.
FOAASU begun her celebration at about 8.00am with her members conveyed at the Oloyan market square where they began their door to door distribution of their palliatives.
The said palliatives includes, noodles, sweets, Galla, etc., which were shared to the happy children in their homes.
Face masks were also shared to many households in the bid to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease.
This act has triggered excitement within many households which were evident in the hearty cheers on the faces of the kids and their parents.
One of the beneficiaries who was interviewed by Nigerian News World couldn’t curtail her excitement as she showered blessings over the union and her membership.
Speaking with our correspondent, the National President in person of Comr. Prince Kehinde Stephen Abioye, said the idea of door to door celebration of this year’s children’s day was birthed after the COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t allow for the usual gathering.
Abioye said the union has contributed their quota to the development of the community in her little way even though there are lots of demand.
The President thereby admonish the community leaders and politicians within the three townships to be “grass root politicians,” in the sense that they should get to know their people and understand their plights.
