Practical democracy as lawmaker takes dividends to villages

By Kayode Adeoti

Spurred by a desire to give back to his people and a sincere spirit anchored on fulfilling campaign promises and appreciating those who, through their votes, made him a honourable member of the Kwara State House of Assembly, representing Share/Oke-Ode constituency, Hon. Rasaq Olatunde Owolabi on Saturday visited some villages  in his constituency.

The villages visited included Gaa-Nda, Gaa-Ajibola and Gaa-Fejewe of Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state.

No doubt the visit will remain ever indelible in the minds of the villagers as Hon. Owolabi who is fondly called Owo reminded them that he holds office at their pleasure. This the servant of the people did in practical terms as he joined in erecting solar light in the village.

News Hub Mag! reports that the people of the communities could not hold back their joys as they thronged out en-mass to cheer the Share born political juggernaut who had come to light up their villages.

Speaking at the communities, the honourable member promised to fix their school communities which had become uninhabitable following years of neglect by past administrations in the state.

He also pledged to provide them motorised boreholes stressing that his ardent desire ever since he resumed office as a lawmaker is to ensure good education for his constituents.

Head of the communities, who could not hold back their joys, in their separate address thanked Hon Owolabi for meeting their demands saying he’s the first political office holder that will ever visit their communities.

The village head at Gaa-Nda, Alhaji Suleiman, said, “Since 1990 that I’ve been voting, we’ve never hosted a political office holder, today is memorable in our history, if other politicians can emulate Owolabi’s gesture, Kwara State will be a better place for all.”

News Hub Mag! reports that at Gaa-Fejewe, Alhaji Saliu Mongaji, after appreciating the lawmaker, reminded him of fixing their school and boreholes saying history will never forget him as he continue to make them happy.
