A chairmanship aspirant in Oshodi/Isolo Local Government Area of Lagos State, Mr.Â Babatunde Saheed Dokunmu, has empowered women and youths of the area.
At his second poverty alleviation programme held at Ewutuntun, Oshodi, recently, theÂ astute politician doled out cash gifts, helmets, complete phone call materials, clippersÂ and other materials, to alleviate poverty.
Dokunmu, a former coordinator of the defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Oshodi andÂ presently the chairman, Ewutuntun ward of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), said heÂ was motivated to introduce the programme by the need to extend dividends of democracy toÂ the poor.
He revealed that his group, The Nucleus Group (TNG), is all out to ensure a brighter,Â rewarding future forÂ Lagosians in particular and Nigerians in general.
Present at the occasion, where Dokunmu also announced his intention to contest theÂ chairmanship seat of Oshodi/Isolo Local Government, were former Commissioner for LocalÂ Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Bosun Jeje; chairman, ACN, Ojodu, Alhaji AshiruÂ and his Oshodi/Isolo counterpart, Alhaji Balogun Agidi, among others.
