Ogun Assembly Minority Leader, Adeleye Lukman empowers constituent to mark International Youth day

Over fifty (50) small-scale businesses in the Odogbolu area of Ogun State have been supported with cash empowerment to commemorate this year's International Youth Day. 

The Ogun 10th Assembly Minority Leader, Hon Adeleye Olalekan Lukman, who organised the empowerment programme, said the scheme is in two categories. 

Hon Adeleye explained that the first category is strictly for non party members while the second is for party members. 

He said the over 50 beneficiaries were selected across the constituency irrespective of their party affiliation.

Hon Adeleye, who expressed concern about the prevailing economic situation in the country, said the empowerment scheme became necessary as part of his promises to the people in his constituency. 

He said, it is worrisome that people now find it hard to eat three square meal as prices of food items and other products have gone up tremendously, while many can't meet their family needs or children's school fees. 

According to him, "small-scale businesses are worse hit as they have continued to crash because of inflation. 

The Minority leader said he has thought it over to support looking at this year's theme, which focuses on green technology.  

He promised that the empowerment scheme is continuous as this would serve as the first phase, advising the youth to channel the money into the right places so as to get reasonable results. 

Hon Adeleye prayed that God would continue to bless Nigeria and their businesses and rescue the people of this country from the present hardship.
