Covid-19: Ogun Assembly Member Donates Food Items , Nose Masks To 100 Disabled Persons, Promises Them Empowerment

A member of Ogun State  House Of Assembly, representing Abeokuta South 11, Hon. Ademuyiwa Adeyemi on Friday  put smiles on the faces of the people with special needs  by giving them food/ relief materials to support them during the Covid-19 pandemic in the state.
The people with special needs numbered about hundred were given rice, spaghetti, garri, indomie, soap and other food items.

He also donated nose masks to them as part of preventive measures against corona virus pandemic, advising them to make use of it and maintain social distancing anytime any day.

Hon. Adeyemi while distributing the food/relief materials on Friday at Alake Sports Center In Abeokuta, maintained  that he believed the most vulnerable set of people in our society now are people with special needs because most of them can only do little or nothing to cater for themselves.
He also  emphasized that the most vulnerable are purely the people with special needs...hence the need  to reach out to them and make them feel like they are part and parcel of the society.

Adeyemi  said, ”My  coming here today  is  to fellowship with my fellow  brothers and sisters, people with disabilities. He said further that a "couple of weeks ago something pricked my heart with the question have u done anything for people with special needs in  your local government and realised that my impact has not been felt amongst this group of people so I decided that today I will come especially during  this trying period to put a smile on their faces.

”Today I am donating food materials to them such as rice, garri, indomie, washing materials, like soap and I hope to continue to do this, what I mean is that I hope to empower them  and not to give them palliatives only but to fashion out a way for them to sustain themselves."

The lawmaker however  assured the people with special needs that he will ensure the speedy process of passing the bill that has to do with people with special need at the house of Assembly.

 ”The bill is there and we have looked at it what we need is to fast track it. We discuss it in the assembly and am assuring them of a positive outcome soonest" He affirmed

Meanwhile, the president of the Association of  Physically Challenged People in the state Comrade  Kayode Sonde has since  appreciated hon. Adeyemi for putting them in mind, during the covid-19 pandemic, saying that  they have not enjoyed the kind of love given to them today.

He described the gesture as a unusual one, saying that no assembly member has ever reached out to them in this manner thanking Adeyemi for deeming it fit  to remember them during this trying period.

”We want to appreciate the support of Hon. Adeyemi  for this kind gesture at all times,  this is another one again,  he donated bags of rice, bags of garri, packs of Indomie, soap and other food materials to us.

”We have never experienced this love before, he felt for us because he understands our  condition and he doesn’t want us to starve.

”We are sure  that he will continue with this kind gesture, we are praying for him that he will continue to see the blessings of God as he has  remembered us today may God continue to remember him for good things” He concluded.

He however called on other politicians to emulate  Adeyemi in empowering them and providing  means of survival for them during this period
The president therefore called on the federal government to include  the disabled people in government.

”Government has failed to recognise us, they  refuse to give some of us appointments because they have declared us not useful to the community, let some of us be SA, commissioners and other  appointments because we are human beings like them”
