Senator Adetokunbo Abiru representing Lagos East at the Senate has unveiled the COVID-19 Relief Financial Assistance for residents of his constituency.
The lunch took place at his Constituency Office, Ikorodu, where he gave an account of his stewardship and also unfolded plans to attract more democratic dividends to the district.
This scheme is designed to ameliorate the devastating economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the mass of our people at the bottom of the pyramid.
He noted that the scheme is in fulfillment of one of his electoral campaign promises that the vulnerable segments in our constituency, the Lagos East Senatorial District will not be abandoned in the face of the greatest phenomenon in recent history.
He said, “I was inaugurated on the 15th December, 2020 as the Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The sense of urgency that my team attached to the welfare of the poorest of the poor in our midst, compelled us to hit the ground running immediately.
“We reached out to our revered GAC Leaders, Party chairmen and our esteemed spiritual fathers and leaders, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) leadership and League of Imams in our Senatorial District to draw up a list of less privileged beneficiaries like: Widows, Unemployed Youths, Women , Physically Challenged Persons among others.
“Over 2,000 of vulnerable people in 98 wards across 16 local government areas in the Senatorial district have benefited N5,000 (Five Thousand Naira) support scheme since January.”
