SESAN LAOYE  |  The legislator representing Oshodi/Isolo Constituency II, Hon. Jude Emeka Idimogu, has said that he is ready to welcome advice and contributions from the people of his constituency, adding that he would make sure that what belongs to the constituency from the government come to the constituency.
He said this at the graduation ceremony of 341 students from his Information and Communication Technology empowerment programme held in Ilasamaja, Isolo, Lagos.
“This empowerment will be in phases, as the next phase will take care of students in the Ejigbo axis of the constituency”, said Idimogu.
He said that the trend ruling the globe now is ICT driven and the future leaders need be compliant in order to fit in amongst their pairs effectively.
He appreciated the participants who participated in the computer training programme, stressing that it is a dividend of democracy at their doorstep, which they need to maximize.
He promised to give N25, 000 each to three selected individuals through the Head of Judab Computer School, Jide Olaitan.
The beneficiaries include Master Udoh Abraham, Miss Alarape Olufunke and Miss Oloruntoni Odesola, who performed excellently in the scheme.
According to the lawmaker, “the gesture is the least of all my efforts for the upliftment of  constituents, as the bad roads here are being accorded priority thanks to my colleagues support and governor’s listening ears.
“I run an open door policy, open to constructive criticism and advice. Pertaining to how we got this far I must admit it is a teamwork not minding the fact that this is the constituency of the Lagos APC chairman. But given the team work, we became victorious and we are not resting on our oars as the local council election is our next target and we will excel”, he said.
The Minority Whip, Hon. Sangodara Mosunmola Rotimi, who won former Governor Babatunde Fashola’s constituency on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, gave words of encouragement to the youngsters, citing the need to maximize the opportunity afforded them via the training.
She advised them all to be focused and serious about acquisition of knowledge and skills saying it will pay off in the long run.
Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe who graced the occasion to associate with the winning team, noted that it is a daunting task and worthy feat achieved by the lawmakers who went the whole journey to deliver the constituency, promising that the best is what the people should expect from PDP representatives.
The chairman of the occasion, PDP Chairman, Oshodi/Isolo, Chief Dele Ashiru, lauded Hon. Idimogu’s unparalleled feat targeted at the future leaders, noting that it is a right step in the right direction.
