Pregnant women, nursing mothers and the aged, on Sunday received from the member representing Ipokia constituency in the Ogun State House of Assembly, Mrs. Sikiratu Ajibola, baby items and money.
Ajibola, who donated the items and money under her empowerment programme, said that the cash was given to pregnant women and the aged while baby items were distributed to nursing mothers.
The lawmaker, who is a member of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) party and the Assembly Committee Chairman on Women Affairs, explained that it was important to give back to the society and also support the less privileged.
Pledging that she would continue to fulfil her electioneering promises by extending the dividends of democracy to the nooks and crannies of her constituency, Mrs. Ajibola commended her people for the confidence reposed in her to represent them in the House of assembly.
Said she: “It is important to give back to the society. This programme is part of my 100 days in office celebration. We also distributed writing materials to primary school pupils to support their parents”.
She used the occasion to call on Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State to rehabilitate all the bad roads in her Ipokia constituency, stating that the poor condition of the roads in her constituency had a negative effect on the economic activities of the Local Government Area.
