Francis Agoda, Nigerian comedian better known as I Go Dye, has donated a mansion to the federal government to be used as an isolation centre to support the fight against the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

The talented comedian took to his social media page on Wednesday to announce the donation.

He said his decision was informed by concerns over the surging cases of the novel virus in Nigeria and the dearth of isolation centres.

“I am donating my new Fapoh Royal Seal Mansion to federal government of Nigeria to use it as an isolation centre. Humanity will overcome all its challenges only if we are willing to let  go of the things we are not using for now for the benefit of others,” he wrote on Instagram.

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

He also called on Nigerians to take the various measures introduced by both the federal and state governments to combat the killer virus seriously.

“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,” he added.

I Go Dye, however, enjoined the federal government to provide the needed palliatives to lessen the hardships the pandemic has brought on Nigerians.

According to him, absence of such measures would only endanger ongoing efforts to contain spread of the disease in the country.

“The hardship is really getting harder, it may jeopardize the progress of controlling the spread of the virus. The federal government  must provide adequate palliatives for all Nigerians, till this disease becomes a thing of the past,” he wrote.

“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.
