Ex governor's son, Olumide distributes FG palliative to constituents

As part of efforts to cushion the effect of economic hardship on his constituents, Hon. Olumide Babatunde Osoba has  distributed the Federal Government palliatives to his constituents.

The lawmaker, popularly known as  "Mr Project" distributed 400 bags of rice and 200 bags of beans to his constituents within his constituency.

The distribution took place on on Wednesday at Ataba Close, Ibara, GRA, Abeokuta, Ogun State

The event was organized by the lawmaker in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security.

The representatives of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security were also present at the event.

Speaking with journalists, Hon Olumide Osoba said the Federal Government is concerned with the hardship and is currently working to make life better for everyone.

He said, “We have been supplied with these food items to deliver to our constituents. Figures are so difficult to believe. You have heard in the media all sorts of amounts.

"All I know is that no member of the House of Representatives has been given a dime. What you are seeing is facilitated by the Ministry of Agriculture and delivered by a contractor, so nobody was giving any money.

“It is all about collective efforts. You do your bit and I do my bit. If I do over 2,000 today and in December I gave N100,000 to 800 people, it is adding up. Everybody must do their bit.”

The lawmaker therefore urged the ward excos to ensure the palliatives reach the masses, adding that  people really need it at this time.
