I’ll project interest of my constituency —Ige

The lawmaker representing Ibadan South East Constituency II in the Oyo State House of Assembly, Honourable Ademola Ige, has vowed to continue to protect and project the interest of his constituency in the parliament.

To justify this stand, Ige said he has sponsored several motions which included motion against street fighting among students and the invitation of Yejide Girls Grammar School basketball team for honour and recognition having excelled at the annual Nestle Milo basketball competition.

Ige disclosed this while rendering his account of stewardship in the last one year to the people of the area.

The lawmaker disclosed further that he visited and donated substantial sum of money to victims of fire incidents at Fidi layout, Afofura, Ode-Ige area, Odinjo, Oranyan market, Itesiwaju market and Sango.

Ige also installed street light projects worth millions of naira, comprising 66 poles at Eleta junction/Akatapa/Odinjo/Muslim overhead bridge with an independent generator to power it.

He said that the projects were meant to put an end to darkness and its attendant hazards on the people of the area.

The lawmaker added that he reconstructed a pedestrian bridge at Tewogbade/Agbongbon area while he also donated money towards the reconstruction of another pedestrian bridge at Opeyemi Fere area.

On education, the ex-chairman of Ibadan South East Local Government Area also paid the WAEC fees of some physically challenged students at Omoyeni/Aperin Oniyere while he promised to pay the same fees of the final year students of the victorious Yejide Girls Grammar School basketball team.

“I will also pay the N1, 000 education levy of the remaining basketball team players until they finish their secondary school education,” he stated.
