A member of the Federal House of Representatives from Ado-Odo/Ota Constituency, Ogun State in the lower legislative chamber, Hon. Jimoh Ojugbele has further extended the dividends of democracy to the people of the area.
The lawmaker, notable as a man of the people, donated three Toyota Camry cars to the Chief Imams of Ado-Odo, Ota and Igbesa.
Those presented with the cars are Fadeelat Sheikh, Soliu Abanigbe, Ado-Odo, Sheikh Buhari Ibraheem Aladi, Ota and
Fadeelat Sheikh Muh’d Saheed Muh’d Awaal, Igbesa.
The cars were donated to the clerics in the spirit of the just-concluded Ramadan and for the celebration of this year’s Eid-il-Fitri.
The Imams were full of prayers for Ojugbele, who they said has proven to be a round peg in a round hole since he got to the green chamber.
According to them, Ojugbele has been fulfilling his campaign promises to the people of the area as they pointed to the various developmental projects that he has facilitated since he got to office.
The Imams then urged other public office holders to emulate Ojugbele, saying that the area has never had it so good since the beginning of the new democratic dispensation in the country in 1999.
On his part, Hon. Ojugbele promised to continue to live to the expectation of his constituents.
“This is just a token and a show of appreciation to our men of God for their efforts and prayers for us in the Constituency.
“I will continue to do the little I can to make life comfortable for our people.
“My going to the House of Representatives is for service to the people and we will continue to do the best that we could to ensure that Ado-Odo/Ota is not relegated to the background,” he said.
Ojugbele is noted for his philanthropic activities in the constituency.
Hundreds of students are currently enjoying his scholarship awards in various tertiary institutions, while thousands of indigenes and residents of Ado-Odo/Ota have benefitted from his empowerment programmes.
Most Community Development Associations (CDAs) in the area have also been presented with hundreds of electricity transformers amongst other items.
