Ajuloopin Mega Empowerment: Muritala Waheed, Other Constituent Members Get Cars, Tricycles, Working Tools


Rep Tunji Olawuyi (Ajuloopin), member representing Ekiti/Isin/Irepodun/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency has distributed cars, tricycles, motorcycles and various working tools as empowerment to his constituents. 

The offer tagged: "Ajulo Mega Empowerment", which was held at the playing ground of Government Secondary School, Omu-Aran, attracted beneficiaries across the 42 wards of the constituency.

Some of the items distributed to the beneficiaries include private cars to deserving party members, tricycles, motorcycles, deep freezers, make-up kits, industrial sewing machines, cows, amongst others.

Olawuyi, in his remarks, said the empowerment items were purchased and distributed based on the immediate needs of the beneficiaries for them to be self productive and reliance.

According to him, nothing is too much to give to the people of my constituency who produced me and gave me the mandate and the solid platform to represent them.

He said the beneficiaries were painstakingly selected after a thorough in-depth research to ascertain those that really needed to be empowered based on one reason or the other.

He expressed optimism that the beneficiaries would ensure judicious use of the items for them to be able to impact positively on other less privileges in the constituency.

Olawuyi urged party members who are not part of the beneficiaries not to see themselves as less important, saying that definitely they would also benefit in no distant future.

Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State in his remarks, urged elected office holders to live above board by impacting positively on the wellbeing and welfare of the people that voted them in.

AbdulRazaq who was represented by his Deputy, Mr Kayode Alabi, said the government was well aware of the series of empowerment earlier initiated by Olawuyi as a way of improving the living standard of the people of the Constituency.

He said his administration had since inception invested massively in lifting the people of the state out of poverty through various targeted people-oriented empowerment and initiative.

The Governor described the Mega Empowerment as a well thought-out initiative toward reducing poverty among the people and make them self sufficient and reliance.

Oba Ismail Alebiosu, the Olupo of Ajase-Ipo and Chairman, Irepodun Traditional Council, who spoke on behalf of traditional rulers described the gesture as unprecedented in the history of the Constituency.

"As members of traditional Institution in Kwara South, I want to say that we are impressed with the leadership qualities and representation of Rep Tunji Olawuyi.

"We are of the opinion that if this kind of programmes have been happening in the Constituency in the past the level of poverty would have been drastically reduced.

"I want to appeal to other political office holders, especially within the Kwara South to emulate the exemplary leadership qualities of Rep Olawuyi and make the most meaningful impact through their various offices," he said.

Both Prince Sunday Fagbemi, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state and Rt. Hon. Yakubu Saliu-Danladi, the Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly in their remarks, commended Rep Olawuyi for his foresight and urged him not to relent.

Mr Shuaib Olanrewaju, an APC elder in Omu-Aran, Irepodun Local Government Area of the state, urged party members to support Rep Olawuyi to be elected a member of the upper chamber come 2023.

"Our Local Government has produced members of the House of Representatives in the past but aside the good work of Rep Olawuyi that we can see physically, only the late Rep Funke Adedoyin also stand out among them.

"We have tested and trusted Rep Olawuyi and he has passed. When a child passes one class, he or she needs to progress to the next class.

"So, let us give our total support to Rep Olawuyi to move from the lower chamber of the National Assembly to the upper chamber come 2023 general elections," he said.

It would be recalled that no fewer than over 60 traditional rulers from the constituency, Commissioners and state House of Assembly members from Kwara South, party stakeholders/members as well as well wishers attended the empowerment programme.
