Ooni to donate N144m fumigator to 36 states

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has called on Nigerians irrespective of class and beliefs to come up with ideas that can assist government to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Oba Ogunwusi spoke on Thursday in Ile Ife, while unveiling a modular fumigator built by some youths under the aegis of Ooni of Ife Global Initiative.

He pledged to donate two units of the fumigator to each of the 36 states, as part of his contribution to the eradication of COVID-19 in the country, saying each of the machine cost N2m.

He said, “Some youths led by Victor Badejo thought of a technology that will convert liquid to fog and fumigate the air, sanitise the community as well.

“Everyone should come up with different initiatives to collectively fight the pandemic. The House of Oduduwa is leading the team and we would deliver the technology to all the nooks and crannies of this country.

“The machine is 100℅ locally fabricated with each costing between N1.5m to N2m, but we are working to bring the cost down. The machine will be used to fumigate every part of Ile Ife. We are donating two units to each of the 36 states.

“We have mastered the technology and we are willing to share it with all the states of the federation free.”

He called on Nigerians to adhere to all measures introduced by government to curb the spread of the coronavirus and advised that efforts should be made to turn economic crises that the pandemic had created to opportunities.
