Public transport Motorcyclists in Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State, known as Okada riders were given free fuel today at Igbokoda by Hon. Kolade Victor Akinjo, member representing Ilaje/Ese-odo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Abuja.
The distribution of free fuel empowerment which took place at Macglobus Petroleum Station, Igbokoda, came in barely 48hours after the honourable member donated a Sienna Space Bus to the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), Ese-odo Chapter, as a way of giving back to the people in order to cushion the effects of the current economic quagmire rocking our nation.
While speaking about the empowerment, Hon. Akinjo said, “giving of free fuel to people at this critical time might look small to some people but for the beneficiaries, it is a form of palliative for their families. We don’t give because we have enough. We give because we care”, he said.
However, the beneficiaries who were filled with joy expressed their gratitude for the kind gesture and prayed that God should continue to strengthen the Hon. Kolade Akinjo to do more.
