By Josephine Oguntoyinbo
The Speaker, Ondo State House of Assembly, Chief Olamide Oladiji has empowered market women in Ondo Kingdom.
Oladiji said this is to stimulate and enhance their economic potential in view of the pressing global economic challenges.
He further pledged to continue to make himself available to his constituents in view of the maximum regards he has for them.
The Speaker noted that the token gift to the market women was meant to cushion the effects of the current global economic downturn and reposition them for economic breakthrough.
He admonished the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the opportunity given to them by using the cash to boost their various businesses.
He pledged to reach out to his constituents from time to time as this is his own way of ploughing back to the people that made him.
The market women in their turns eulogized the Speaker for identifying with them always, especially in this hard time. They noted that he has not disappointed them since he was elected to represent them.
Each of the beneficiaries, drawn from the nooks and crannies of Ondo Kingdom, went home with one hundred thousand naira.
