Philanthropist donates food, cash to Ondo Special School

 

A philanthropist, Olabode Ijalana has donated food items and cash gift to Ondo State School for the Visually Impaired, Owo to complement government’s effort in providing good living condition for students of the school.
The items which included a bag of rice, cartons of noodles, a big iron cooking pot and other stuffs were received by Assistant Head Teachers and other member of the school community.

Accompanied by representatives of a PDP chieftain, Chief Rotimi Ibidapo, his wife, loyalists and supporters, Mr. Ijalana said the gesture was a demonstration of his commitment to making impact on the lives and welfare of special children who he said deserved care from well meaning individuals in the society.

He said the donation which was to complement government’s effort in the education sector was in line with his undying passion to give back to the society in his little way.
“I’m from this town, I believe the students deserve better life. So I decide to come here to see them and deliver some things to them. I have also visited my old school and delivered books to them. This is what I love to do”, he said.

Mr Ijalana explained that similar gestures have been done in other places as his modest contributions to his immediate environment even as he promised to continue his drive to putting smiles on the faces of the people.
Ijalana who is aspiring to represent Owo Constituency 1 in the Ondo State House of Assembly in the 2023 legislative election said he has answered the persistent calls of his people to represent them at the legislative arm of government.

Ijalana who promised to leverage on his experience to provide quality representation said he would attract strong government presence to his constituency if elected.
Responding, Assistant Head Teacher of the school, Mr. Eric Oladele expressed gratitude to Mr Ijalana for his generosity saying the gifts especially the big iron pot came at a time the school was in dire need of the facility to strengthen their cooking

While highlighting efforts of the Ondo State government in providing good living condition for students of the school, Mr Oladele appealed to well-to-do individuals and groups to borrow a leaf from Olabode Ijalana’s caring heart and assist the special school.
