Amosun empowers 5,600 loyalists

By Adedayo Olanrewaju

The Senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District at the Red Chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Ibikunle Amosun yesterday doled out empowerment tools to no fewer than 5,600 residents of the state.

Speaking at the flag off of a week-long mega empowerment programme in Abeokuta, the state capital, Amosun said he extended the empowerment programme beyond Ogun Central Senatorial Districts was to compensate his loyalists in Ogun East and West Senatorial Districts for their support for him over the years.

Amosun, the immediate past governor of the state distributed 2,000 units of grinding machines, 2,000 units of sewing machines, 500 units of laptop/desk top computers to students, 500 units of 5kva generators, 500 generators and 100 mini buses.

While explaining his reason for extending the gesture to other constituencies, he said although, he represents Ogun Central Senatorial District, but his supporters cut across his the State.

"One novel thing about what we are doing today is that we are not limiting this to just Ogun Central even though Ogun Central will have more because I represent Ogun Central, but I know we have our people as well in the East and West. Though, Ogun East and West have their own Senators and they have been giving their people things, but I'm doing this in the Central and I felt that I should extend that courtesy to our people in Ogun West and East".

"It is not only the people of Ogun Central that have been supporting me since, our people from Ogun West and East have also been supporting our course and I feel they should also benefit from this empowerment programme".

"We are distributing 2,000 numbers of grinding machines, 2,000 numbers of sewing machines, 500 numbers of deep freezers, 500 5kva generators and 500 laptop and desktop computers for our students and we are distributing 100 buses to every ward", Amosun said.

Amosun added that, he has distributed 68 transformers, 540 solar streetlights, 48 boreholes, 440 hospital beds and renovated blocks of classrooms as part of his constituency project.
