Honorable Kolawole Taiwo Musibau representing Ajeromi-Ifelodun federal constituency in the House of Representatives have embarked on series of life changing social and economic development programmes for people in his constituency.
The programmes which started late last year included the electrification of several roads and streets with solar energy and the organization of an interactive town hall meeting.
Successful participants of the forex trading programme sponsored by the amiable politician fondly called HKT by admirers, received free new laptops.
Renowned for his uncommon people oriented and welfarist programmes, HKT, a former Deputy Speaker in the Lagos State House of Assembly, went further this year with several other life-changing programmes for members of Ajeromi-Ifelodun, beginning with the historic agric/ poultry training programme, which he solely sponsored in conjunction with the Federal College of Animal Health and Production Technology and Highsky Procurement Limited.
Hundreds of successful graduands at these fishing and poultry trainings received cash gifts, feeds and gadgets as take off capital, as well as certificate.
Speaking on the success of the training programmes, HKT expressed his happiness on the trainings as he thanked the resource persons and individuals who contributed to the successful completion of the programmes.
He went ahead to admonish the participants and graduands to be self- reliant by setting up small and medium scale businesses in poultry and fish farming.
” I am happy by the enthusiasm displayed by the participants during the training programmes. It shows the readiness of our youths to become economically independent and financially comfort. That’s in line with my dreams for people of my constituency.
He added: ” Take this as a challenge. I want you all to be able to produce fishes and chickens for sale during the Easter period. With seriousness, you can start making money for yourselves,” HKT, who was recently honoured as the ‘Best Politician’ at the 7th Edition of the City Merit Awards, enthused gleefully.
