Distribution of items to constituents under the empowerement projects of the late lawmaker that represented Akure south/Akure north federal constituency, Hon Adedayo Omolafe continued on Tuesday as beneficiaries went home with 50 motorcycles, 64 chest freezers and 40 power generating sets.
Hon Omolafe popularly known as “Expensive” died on August 16, 2021 but death has not stopped his humanitarian gesture to the people he represented on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP as he keeps impacting several lives even after his demise.
Presenting the empowerement items to the beneficiaries in Akure, widow of the late federal lawmakers, Mrs Taye Omolafe said the family would not allow the legacy of their patriarch to die.
Mrs Omolafe said it was the dream of her husband to ensure that members of his constituency benefited hugely from the position he occupied while alive.
She urged beneficiaries to ensure judicious use of the items to empower themselves financially in view of the hardship being experienced in the country now.
Appreciating the Akure federal lawmaker during the event, two of the beneficiaries Chief Shideli Adeniyi, the Obasusi of Akure land and Mr Rufus Adelegan lauded the uncommon initiative of the donor noting that the items given to the them would go a long way in addressing their financial needs.
At the event, one of the friends of the late Omolafe who also benefited from the gesture, Mr Rotimi Fashua hinted that “expensive” had a great plan for his constituents but death did not allow him to achieve such adding that what he had done so far could attest to the impactful lifestyle the lawmaker lived.
