Ambode on Monday restated the government’s resolve to enforce relevant
regulations on noise pollution in the state.
He made the remarks when the MTN Foundation distributed 250 hearing
aid devices to beneficiaries in the state, including children less than
one year old.
The Governor who was represented by his Special Adviser on Primary
Health, Dr. Femi Onanuga,
stressed that no
individual or corporate
organisation would be spared in government’s renewed onslaught against
defaulters.
He urged the 250 beneficiaries of the MTN Foundation Hearing Aid
support project in Lagos State to join the crusade of campaign against
noise pollution in the society.
It is the first phase of MTN Hearing Aid Support Project, during
which 1,500 devices will be distributed to hard-of-hearing persons in
six states of the country.
Also speaking, Wife of the Governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode, described
MTN as a company with a high sense of commitment to the execution of
corporate social responsibilities.
Handing the device to some beneficiaries, Mrs. Ambode said, “All
these years, the company has maintained a clear lead in diligent
fulfillment of its social covenant with the people and society. Its
outreaches had touched a large percentage of the population across all
age categories”.
She hinted that coincidentally, the Committee of Wives of Lagos State
Officials (COWLSO), would do a similar programme later in the year,
urging the beneficiaries to use the devices as instructed and also
handle them with care.
Speaking earlier, the Director, MTN Foundation, Mr. Denis Okoro
stressed the commitment of the foundation to continuous upliftment of
the welfare of challenged persons.
He also thanked the State Government for being the first to establish
a department totally dedicated to overseeing the welfare of challenged
persons.
