•••Beneficiaries Extol Segun Adekola, Credit Performances
More than five thousand targeted beneficiaries of the just concluded mega empowerment programme of Hon. Segun Adekola, federal lawmaker representing Ekiti South Federal Constituency 1 (Ikere, Ise/Orun and Ekiti South West Local Govt Areas of Ekiti State), in the green chamber, have in batches commended their benefactor, credited his performances and unanimously pledged loyalty and commitment to his cause.
The beneficiaries, who came to the Igbara-Odo residence of Hon. Adekola in batches from Saturday, 1st till Monday, 3rd July, wholeheartedly applauded the programme and assured him of their relentless supports.
The Deputy Legislative Assistant to Hon. Adekola, Mr Olowolafe Ademola from Ikere-Ekiti, who took to his Facebook timeline to appreciate his boss immediately he was given a key to one Peugeot 307 on Saturday, said, “This is the best and the greatest gift I have ever received in my life (Peugeot 307).
“Thanks to Hon & Mrs. Segun Adekola… A wonderful and great mentor. Thanks to Oshokomole of Ekiti State, Gov. Ayodele Fayose. #Istandwith Segun Adekola# IstandwithOshokomole# Istandwith PDP#.”
Another beneficiary who was physically challenged and given Modernised Wheelchair posited, “We thank Hon. Adekola for making our mobility more easier. Unlike those dignitaries who never wanted to associate with us, he has shaken hands with some of us times without number and you can see him standing very close to me now. We are proud of him and we equally assure him of our support anytime because unto whom much is given, much is equally expected.”
Mr. Kareem Taiwo from Ise/Orun extolled the federal lawmaker for bringing what the beneficiaries jointly accepted as tangible and quality dividend of democracy to his constituents and not hiding under the guise of economic recession.
Describing the empowerment as the best in history of the constituency, he made a catalogue of the items thus, “Distribution of Peugeot 307 Cars, Distribution of over 200 Motorcycles, 120 Hair Dryers, 300 Sowing Machines, 255 Grinding Machines, 1500 Gas Cookers, 35 Block Molding Machines, 20 Modernised Wheelchairs and over 500 Agric Spraying Machines.
Others were, “Disbursement of over 2.5Million Naira to over 500 Students across the constituency, Presentation of Cash Reward to 18 best teachers in both Primary and Secondary Schools across the Constituency.
“Commissioning of 10 Water head Tanks, Commissioning of 15 Boreholes with Water Points, Commissioning of 3 Blocks of Classrooms and Foundation Laying of additional 5 Blocks of Classrooms in the constituency.”
Singing praises of his name and eulogising the sense of magnanimity in him, the beneficiaries in their turns maintained one ground that Hon. Adekola remains the leading honourable and the most evidently tested and trusted representative that could be looked up to, recommended and considered for greater opportunity in the nearest future.
They appraised the height of humility, honesty along transparency which they confirmed was keenly observed in him as a public figure without ego or pride, saying if others could emulate his leadership pattern which they equally equated to that of Gov. Ayodele Fayose, the electorates shall always feel the sense of belonging and have confidence in their respective representatives.
