The member of the House of Representatives, representing Oluyole federal constituency of Oyo State, Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe has donated 12 300KVA transformers to communities in the federal constituency.
This donation was coming barely a month after the Hon. Akande-Sadipe facilitated an empowerment program for 200 women and youths in intensive training on cosmetology, donated several boreholes with water treatment plants, and completed the construction of three schools in the constituency in January.
This was further demonstration of the fulfilment of her promise to the people, as she expressed optimism that the transformers will significantly impact the quality of life and economic activities within the beneficiary communities.
The 12 beneficiary communities are: Lafiku village; Irepodun Abbey Technical; Idi Ishin community; Egbeda Tuba community; Ifelodun community; CRIN Odo Ona community; Alaagba One Village; Orelope Isale Alfa; Papa Eleye; Sanyo Agbamu community; Ori Apata Estate, and Adewolo community.
A statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Olamilekan Olusada, said that Hon. Akande-Sadipe assured the residents of her constituency of continued representation that would bring more benefits to them.
The chairman of House Committee on Diaspora Affairs said, “Prior to the 2019 elections, I took my campaign to different communities in my constituency in the quest to dialogue, exchange ideas on their expectations, and understand their needs.
“It was important for me to have a better understanding of the gaps I needed to fill and collect first-hand data from the people of Oluyole.”
Noting that lack of transformers was highlighted as a key need in the communities, Akande-Sadipe assured members of her constituency that despite the challenges, she is committed to ensuring that more requests will be fulfilled and Oluyole federal constituency would experience rapid development.
Leaders of the benefitting community took turns to express their deep appreciation for the kind gesture of Hon. Akande-Sadipe, promising to ensure proper watch on the transformers to keep them safe from vandalisation.
