A socio-cultural group, Kwara Fulani Development Union in Ekiti/Isin/Irepodun/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency, in Kwara, has commended Rep Tunji Olawuyi Ajuloopin, over the donation of some food items to its members as palliatives.

Mall Suleiman Giwa, the Secretary of the group, gave the commendation during the presentation of the food items at the constituency office in Omu-Aran, on Thursday.

Some of the items presented to the group which was witnessed by its representatives across the four councils of the constituency, include some bags of rice, beans, maize and groundnut oil.

Giwa, in his remarks, described the lawmaker's gestures as unprecedented in the history of the group, saying it was highly beneficial, a morale booster and a welcome development.

According to him, this donation is coming when our people's purchasing powers have been drastically reduced by various measures aimed at curtailing the spread of COVID-19 at the grassroots.
"Things have become very difficult for our members like other residents in the constituency as a result of persistent lockdown following the advent of COVID-19.

" Many have even lost of hope of survival as commercial and business activities have been on the downward trend as lockdown persists.

"But today, Rep Ajuloopin has rekindled our hope of having the belief that we still have in our midst such leader who is very much passionate about the welfare and well-being of his people.

" We have earlier benefitted from the first and second phases of the distribution of preventive materials such as hand sanitizers, liquid soaps and face mask and food items sponsored by the constituency office.

"But today's donation specifically targeted at our union is very unique and we want to commend Rep Ajuloopin for the honour and recognition done the Union," Giwa added.

Earlier, Rep Ajuloopin, in his remarks, said the donation was in continuation of his desire and larger plans toward alleviating the impact of the various measures over COVID-19 on the people of the constituency.

Ajuloopin, represented by his Legislative Aide, Hon Lanre Agas, said the gesture was also in fulfillment of his promise to always be alive to the yearnings and aspirations of the constituents whenever the need arises.

"The union members like other constituents  are highly respected and reliable people, this they passionately demonstrated through their support during the last elections and as we have promised we will continue to be there for them and others in their times of need.

" This exercise God's willing will be a continuous one and we are very much hopeful that it will go a long way to douse tension created by various measures aimed at curbing COVID-19 community spread among our people.

"I want to still appeal to the union members and the constituents across the four councils in general to continue to adhere strictly to various measures such as social distancing and regular washing of hands targeted at curbing the spread of COVID-19," Ajulo-Opin, who is also the Chairman of the House Committee on Emergency and Disaster Preparedness added.
