Not fewer than 30 indigenes of Iwo in Iwo Local Government of Osun State benefited from the free medical services organised by a group canvassing support for Senator Ademola Adeleke’s governorship ambition, Vote Adeleke 2022.
The programme which was held at the secretariat of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Iwo, was solely sponsored by a chieftain of the party and a patron of the group, Prince Quadri Olawale Amao.
Free medical tests were conducted and drugs given by a medical team led by Dr.Adepoju Adeyemi and assisted by Comrade Oyeyemi Bukola.
Speaking to newsmen shortly after the programme, Prince Amao said he sponsored the outreach because he believed in the cause of Senator Ademola Adeleke of becoming the governor of the state in 2022.
He said the exercise would be in phases as the Iwo outreach was just the beginning of what the people of the area would witness.
Speaking on money expended on the project, Prince Amao said over N100,000 was spent on the project.
