The regrettable narrative in the educational sector in Ogun state may soon be a thing of the past as the lawmaker, representing Abeokuta North Federal Constituency, Hon. Olumide Osoba on Saturday commissioned blocks of classrooms in the area.
Some of the schools which benefitted from the kind gestures were St. Peter Angelican Primary school, Ogidan Owode-Egba, St. Luke Primary School Ibara Orile, Oke Ona Primary school among others.
Aside the commissioning, Hon. Olumide, son of the former governor of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba also empowered not less than 120 people of the area who were given sewing machines, motorcycles, generating machines, graining machines, refrigerator and many others.
At the commissioning ceremony which held at the Ibara Housing Estates in Abeokuta the state capital, Osoba stressed that the motive behind the gesture was to get the people self dependent and equip them with ability to feed without sole dependence on the government.
Osoba regretted the poor condition of electricity in the state, pledging to collaborate with the State government to put to an abrupt end.
“Well we have to give back to the people who elected me…I have empowered 120 people by giving them sewing machines, bikes, generators, graining machines, fridges.”
“It is for the people to earn a living with what we have given them, also to people who have experience and earn a living to feed themself and family.
While I was there I was the one that sign the 2015 budget.
“It got to a point where global warming is an issue, generator are used everywhere in the world there are number of generators that are used in Nigeria are the problem, you can not do without generator anything can happen because of the power outages.”
