The NGO, owned by the ministry, is responsible for these kind of initiatives for reaching out to people inside or outside the faith. It is an interdenominational setup that caters for people of all races, ages, and religious backgrounds but with similar situations of life.

Alex Akpabio, a second resppndent to the tweer, in his own words said,
This is where you know a honest person that has the people’s interests at heart.. Not the so called billionaires donating billions to a greedy government like themselves. God bless you pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Center.
Arohunmolase Akindele in his own sarcastic response to the tweet mocked another church of the same faith that was reported to have sued the federal government over the lockdown. He said,
The one big church in our area is pressuring the government to lift restrictions because lack of tithes nd offering are beginning to affect their finances.
This news came at the right time where hunger is gradually increasing at a jet speed across the country and the effect of Covid-19 pandemic on Lagosians is almost at its peak. Just yesterday, houses across Lagos, Ogun and Ibadan were robbed by thugs and hoodlums.
In a country where every citizens have to vend for themselves by any means possible without government support, in a precarious situation like this, religious groups fits the role of life savers.
