A member representing Omupo State Constituency at the Kwara State House of Assembly, Hon. (Barr.) Abdulganiyu Folabi Salahuddeen(AGF), in his bid to give back to his community, has empowered a total number of 1000 less privileged households across the 8 wards and 5 Districts of his Constituency who are in one way or the other in their needs.

The epoch-making event, held Saturday, 19th March 2022, at the open field of the Saint Michael School, Omupo, amidst Omupo Constituent residents, APC leaders, stakeholders, and stalwarts from the 9th Assembly and the State executive arm, was a grand empowerment programme, an opportunity to showcase his developmental strides, economic emancipation, and social empowerment within the period of his stewardship which began in 2019.

While speaking, the endower, Hon. (Barr.) Salahuddeen, said that the
programme is a fulfillment of public understanding and to bring together political friends and love ones outside his usual assistance rendered on one on one bases.

“This programme is just a fulfillment of public understanding and political gangurism. What a leader who benefitted from the provision of a statute or law is supposed to be doing is what we have been doing. The left hand is not supposed to know what the right hand is giving”, he said.

What we are holding today is a Grant Empowerment, an opportunity to showcase all that we have done in terms of developmental strides, economic emancipation, and social empowerment within the period of our stewardship which began in 2019.

He said that his stewardship since 2019 has changed the narrative and ensured that his constituency belongs to her rightful state, stressing that he has so far covered and taken care of his constituents’ needs in the area such as education, road projects, sports, Health and legislatively by moving motions, lobbying and other different approaches that have yielded many dividends to the people in his constituency.

While appreciating the governor,
Speaker of the House of Assembly, RT. Hon. Engr. Danladi Salihu and other members of the State 9th Assembly, for their show of genuine cause to the concerns and course in his State Constituency, AGF declared, “We are also grateful and
promised not to misuse the gesture”.

” Today’s Empowerment that has been granted to these 1000 households, include Agricultural Inputs, Social Empowerment, Artisans’ engagement, economic relief, employments, cash grants and infrastructural development millions of naira, such as Motorcycles, Deep Freezers, Welding Machines, Sewing machines, Grinding machine, POS machine with takeoff grants, Agricultural spraying machines, School bags, and cash grants”, he said.

“We have also identified the poorest of the poor within our community to complement the Social Service of His Excellency, Mall. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, through the KWASSIP Program. We have also identified 500 market women and elderly members of our Constituency where we will enroll them in the special scheme designed by my constituency office, the Owo arugbo, and Owo Isowo program. A program we will be incorporating with our Annual Bursary program. The bursary program will be expanded to accommodate 85 more Students within our Constituency”, he said

Beseeching the constituents to reaffirm support for the Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, AGF said that it is pertinent to note that all they have achieved is as a result of the commitment of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq in our State Constituency, adding, “We are guaranteed to get more in our Constituency when we support the Administration of His Excellency”, he stressed.

He called on his constituents to join hands in ensuring that the constituency takes the lead in bringing Mallam Abdulrahman Abdurlrazaq back for another 4 years term, to make the constituency and the State at large, which had been grossly short-changed in the past move forward.

While unveiling the empowerment items, the speaker of the 9th Kwara House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Engr.) Danladi Ng, who was accompanied by his deputy and members of House, attested to personal commitment, Hon. AGF is doing in taking the constituency to a greater height just as Governor Abdulrahman Abdurlrazaq is doing for Kwarans.

Engr. Danladi charged people of the constituency to come together to support AGF to return as they would also want for the governor, disclosing that what AGF has done and still doing and shall be doing is testified to by all, there is no need for rancor, hatred, enmity.

He called on Commissioner, Chief Executive, party leaders, and all stakeholders from the Constituency and Ifelodun Local Government to abhor bitterness against each other and work as a team to return Mallam Abdulrahman Abdurlrazaq and Hon.
