House of Representatives member, representing Ondo East and West Federal Constituency, Hon Abiola Peter Makinde has empowered his constituents. The empowerment program which was his constituency project for the year 2020 became unavoidably belated because of the outbreak of Corona Virus has now been delivered to grateful constituents in Ondo East and West.
The empowerment program which included the distribution of numerous Tricycles, motorcycles, hairdryers, sewing machines, deep freezers, grinding machines, agricultural enhancement mechanisms, and generators were all distributed to joyous recipients.

While addressing the mammoth crowd who had converged at the ground, Deputy-Chairman of the Federal Character Commission at the National Assembly, Hon Makinde noted that the empowerment has long been overdue and it was done to ameliorate the sufferings of his people and mitigate the adverse of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy.
He also said, “All of these was put together out of having the interest of the people at heart and ensuring that we try as much as possible to deliver dividends of democracy to people who are so yearning for it. Also, this empowerment is for all of Ondo as it cut across all political parties within the constituency, we are first of all Ondos, before separation by party lines and commitments. This empowerment is my constituency project for the previous year 2020 and I can authoritatively tell my constituents to expect another round of empowerment soon.”
“My commitment to the Ondo Wealth Agenda which stands for Water, Education, Agriculture, Light, Training, and Health is a motivating factor that this project is borne out of.”
