iCARE FOODBANK: THE TENACITY TO CRUSH POVERTY IN IKORODU DIVISION. | Shakiru Seidu. JB, an emblem of genuine leadership. -Daini

With all sense of decency and honesty, Hon. Babajimi Benson, MHR, has made name for himself which the posterity will forever emulate. The commencement of any laudable project may be very easy but oftentimes, maintenance and the sustainability of such programme usually becomes a life time obstacle. Without any iota of doubt, the above philosophy does not hold water in the presence of the vibrant legislator, Hon. Babajimi Benson.

As usual, hundreds of people were gathered at the Constituency Office of Hon. Babajimi Benson on Saturday, 24th of June, 2017, as beneficiaries of the food items tagged 'APO ANU' got their own portion of Babajimi's largesse. The laughter on the faces of the beneficiaries cannot be over emphasised as they were showering prayers on Hon. Babajimi Benson and his amiable wife, Mrs Jumoke Benson.

However, before the speech of Hon. Babajimi Benson, one of the iCARE Team members, Alhaji Ismail Oriare appreciated the participants and assured them of much better things to come from his principal.

Shortly after this, the erudite legislator, Hon Babajimi Benson, MHR, addressed the hundreds of people gathered and applauded them for believing in him. He seized that opportunity to solicit for their constant support and prayers to enable him do more than what he is giving them.

His amiable wife, Mrs Jumoke Benson also tendered her sincere appreciation to the women and wished them well in all their endeavours. She assured everybody of more better things to come.

The former Secretary to the Lagos State Government, Princess Adenrele Ogunsanya enjoined the people to always support Hon Babajimi Benson in prayers because God has always been sustaining him and for the good plan he holds for the masses to be achievable. She further implored everybody to key into the liberation era that has began.

Nevertheless, the APC flagbearer for the chairmanship position in Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA, Comrade Olusesan Daini applauded Hon Babajimi Benson for his tenacious and unique leadership style in Ikorodu Division which he cherished and pray to emulate.

Daini therefore seized the opportunity to plead for people's support for all APC candidates in Ikorodu division in the coming Local Government Election.

The programme did not come to an end without an eloquent address from Mayor Deen Sanwoola, one of the strong loyalists of Hon. Babajimi Benson. He pleaded with the beneficiaries not to have taken the food to their various houses but assured them that the programme will not be cancelled as agitated by some ungrateful elements.

Deen also stated that the iCARE Foundation through it's iCARE Foodbank has been able to feed about 7,000 people in the last 9 months, by providing monthly food rations (Apo Anu) to 300 families every month.

Mayor further urged people to continually pray for JB as he aimed at empowering more people in Ikorodu Division.

Among those dignitaries that witnessed the programme includes Princess Adenrele Ogunsanya, Comrade Olusesan Daini, Hon. Olabisi Banjo, Prince Lanre Sanusi, the owner, Bolowotan Football Team, Mayor Deen Sanwoola, Mr Adebayo Oteju, Mr Taiwo Odumbo, and other iCARE Team, Adewale Bolowotan among many other Party faithfuls.
