The senator representing Oyo North Senatorial District, Abdulfatai Buhari, recently distributed empowerment tools to 1,500 beneficiaries at the OYSADEP football field in Saki.
At the event, 16 cars, 300 motorcycles, 12 tricycles, 637 grinding machines, 25 deep freezers and 237 sewing machines were distributed. Also, 250 widows went home with cash.
Oyo State deputy governor, Moses Adeyemo, who represented Governor Abiola Ajimobi at the event tagged: Senator Abdulfatai Buhari 2015 Empowerment Programme said: “I have never seen such an elaborate empowerment programme. Senator Buhari is really showing the change which our party is known for. Is what Senator Buhari doing today not a change from what you used to know? I am appealing to other senators to emulate Senator Buhari.”
Mindful of the people who are yet to benefit from the gesture, Senator Buhari promised to continue from where he stopped with a view to ensuring balance and harmony.
“I want to reiterate my commitment to you all and to urge all the local government areas in our senatorial district that have not benefited to be patient as we have everybody in our plans. This programme will soon go round.
“I still remain the Abdulfatai Buhari you voted for. I have retained all my mobile phone numbers for easy accessibility. My doors are widely and open. All I need is your support and patience.
“I will continue to identify with my people in order to radically reduce poverty in our district,” he said.

Commission Bill, Police Task Force Development Bill, among others.
