The residents were miffed at the manner ‘Father Christmas’ went about throwing the food at them. While it is believed that Hon. Dipo’s gesture was with good intent, the means by which he carried it out attracted serious criticism.
He published a video and some pictures on Facebook this morning showing Amuwo Odofin residents, young and old, scrambling around his vehicle trying to catch whatever they could as he threw food items into the air.
It wasn’t long after the video was published , comments of course as expected came in but this time around was negative condemning the way he distributed the items and suggesting better ways it could have been done.
“Good intentions but I don’t subscribe to the ‘manner ‘of distribution. It’s the same thing the old men do that we frown out. You could have asked them to assemble at a venue and do the distribution,” Laide Eloho.
“What is Good About Throwing Food and Gifts to People on the Road like they are Chickens eager to get fed with feed. You have good intentions …Yes, i will not ignore that fact but this Approach is Very Very Wrong.Take Note and do better next time.Because when you get to heaven,God will ask how you did it and not what you did.”
Among the items that was said to have been distributed was to have distributed were Rice, Eggs, Bottles of Kerosene, Noodles, and Groundnut oil but in the video, Hon. Dipo was seen throwing packs of noodles at residents who chased after him in a moving truck.
In his video caption he said, “Recession or no recession, people are hungry and in need, it’s a festive season also and I believe as I always done to share what I have with my people, which is why I am giving out Christmas packages.”
We all know the Honourable have good intentions but just a wrong manner of approach , What do you think ? was the manner of approach wrong ? should he have done it better ? do you have suggestions towards this ?
