Comedian 'I Go Dye' says he's donating his mansion to FG as COVID-19 isolation centre

Popular Nigerian comedian Francis Agoda aka 'I Go Dye' has said he is donating his FAPOH Royal Seal Mansion to the Federal Government as COVID-19 isolation centre to support the fight against the pandemic.

A number of Nigerian celebrities have been taking different actions to support the fight against the virus. Some have donated money to fans on social media, while others have donated pallative packages to those affected by the lockdown.

Singer Douglas Agu aka Runtown shared N10 million to fans on social media in March, while Mavin Records boss, Micheal Ajereh aka Don Jazzy, has been surprising fans on social media with cash transfers. Yemi Alade has also donated money to fans on Twitter, Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham has also been at the front line of donating food packages to those affected by the lockdown in different parts of the country.

'I Go Dye's' donation makes him the first Nigerian to donate a private residence to be converted into an isolation centre.

"Humanity will overcome all its challengens only if we are willing to let go of the things we are not using for now for the benefit of others," the comedian wrote in a post announcing the donation on his Instagram page on Wednesday morning

"I feel convinced to donate this my new FAPOH Royal Seal Mansion to the Federal Government to used as an isolation centre as my personal quest to assist in the control, prevention, isolation  and treatment of those diagnosed or to be treated in the course of us finding a lasting solution."

He added that the donation will stand as a gift to humanity, till a solution is found for the deadly virus.

I Go Dye also appealed to Nigerians to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously because it has claimed over one million lives in all parts of the world.

He urged the federal government to extend the lockdown for another two weeks and provide adequate palliatives for all Nigerians to cushion the effect of the lockdown.

"The hardship is really getting harder, it may jeopardize the progress of controlling the spread of the virus," the comedian said.

I'M DONATING MY NEW FAPOH ROYAL SEAL MANSION TO FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA TO USE IT AS AN ISOLATION CENTRE. Humanity will overcome all its challengens only if we are willing to let go of the things we are not using for now for the benifit of others. In view of the increasing cases of #coronavirus patients in Nigeria, and the few screening centres available for now, I'm deeply worried. We will be making humanitarian sacrifices towards contributing our selfless deeds to control the escalating records of the #coronavirus as predicted by WHO. When I wrote an open letter to Mr President on the 5th of Apri 2020 on how we can control the spread of the convid-19, it was only 210 cases, today it moving towards a thousand. We should be proactive if we hope to win this global war,that has no boundaries,no discrimination and unfortunately indestructible for now. Against this backdrop, and the ongoing lock down, the few services left has been put on hold at the ongoing FAPOH Royal Seal Mansion project site. I feel convinced to donate this my new FAPOH Royal Seal Mansion to the Federal Government to used as an isolation centre, as my personal quest to assist in the control, prevention, isolation and treatment of those diagnosed or to be treated in the course of us finding a lasting solution. This donation will stand as a gift to humanity, till we find a solution which will once again set us free from the shackles of this incurable disease. I am appealing to Nigerians to take this matter seriously because Covid-19 is real as it has claimed over one million lives in all parts of the world. The hardship is really getting harder, it may jeopardize the progress of controlling the spread of the virus. The feldral government must provide adequate palliatives for all Nigerians, till this disease becomes a thing of the past. I also appeal for a two-week total lockdown to enable government treat existing cases and curb further spread by those who may have contracted the Covid-19. This lockdown will control all forms of movement and socialization between individuals or groups. May God see us through this dark moments. Amb Francis Agoda
