Constituents from Oluyole federal constituency have benefited from the multimillion-naira empowerment programme facilitated by Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, the member representing the constituency in the House of Representatives.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, lawmaker on Saturday distributed empowerment items including tricycles, motorbikes, refrigerators, among others, to alleviate poverty in her constituency.
So far, over 5,000 constituents from Oluyole federal constituency have benefitted from the numerous multimillion-naira empowerment programmes sponsored by Hon. Akande-Sadipe
Speaking after the empowerment programme, Akande-Sadipe explained that the items given were based on the identified need gaps within her constituency in a bid to create wealth.
Insisting that empowering her constituents and people generally gives her joy, especially as she has enjoyed unflinching support from them throughout her political sojourn.
She averred that the empowerment programme rounds off her one-week fraternisation with members of her constituency; which activities included: visitation to youths, police stations and elders in the constituency, where basic development issues were discussed.
She described the empowerment programme as a fall out of her long-time search to alleviate poverty in her constituency, adding that the end result of the coronavirus pandemic requires constant attention of lawmakers in their constituencies.
Akande-Sadipe, who chairs the House Committee on Diaspora Affairs, reiterated that as a representative of the people, she will not rest on her oars, in providing solutions to the needs of her constituency through her constituency office.
She added, “The beneficiaries of the empowerment programme today were carefully selected from all the wards. We would ensure we reach out to as many as we can.”
As part of the activities, she also commissioned some constituency projects during the empowerment event.
Some of the projects commissioned included: bore-hole project in Olubi village; two block of two classrooms at St. Thomas Primary School, Longe village and Ifelodun Primary School, Muslim, respectively.
Reacting to the empowerment, some of the beneficiaries thanked the lawmaker for the gesture and promised their unalloyed support.
Hon. Akande-Sadipe also called on all beneficiaries to follow the spirit of becoming fishermen; promising to continue with her commitment to the people of Oluyole and provide more social amenities such as rural water and electrification projects, police posts and others.
