Speaking on behalf of the many beneficiaries, Mr. Babasani Monday who expressed their gratitude for the lawmaker assistance, promised the support of the people of the constituents.
According to Babasani, Hon. Lawal is an exceptional leader who has torched the lives of his constituents positively and he is not relenting in his effort to transform his constituency better than he met it, saying his numerous achievements which includes securing of employment to many youths, distribution of vocational tools, educational supports, countless number of boreholes, rural electrification, and empowerment schemes has stood him out for accolades.
According to him, “There is no doubt that Hon Lawal has gone outside his own way of legislature to empower many; that is why I said it is worth commending. We want him to keep it up. What I’m saying is that he has done what is expected of representation.
“I made it clear that he’s not the first member to represent this constituency, we have had people before him, but none has measured up to him. And beside that, we have seen from other part of the country how other members did little or no efforts to uplift the standard of their people. Hon. Lawal has made huge impact positively on the lives of the people he represents.
“What do we require of him more than the empowerment that he has been doing to our people? As a member of this constituency, I can confidently tell you that Hon Lawal is one of the best representatives we have ever had in the history of Kogi state.
“There are some lawmakers in Kogi that did not even bother to visit their constituency again, let alone, bring dividend of democracy home, but Lawal is exceptional. Anytime he is visiting his constituency, all the drums of the land will be rolled. We can now nod our head to say we made the right choice in reelecting him.”
Hon. Lawal described the distribution of tricycles, grinding engine and motorcycles worth millions of naira to individuals, groups and communities mostly from farm centres as a ‘little’ empowerment.
