The Member, House of Representatives representing Ibadan North-East/South-East Constituency, Hon. Abass Adigun (fondly called Agboworin), has written his name so boldly in the book of selfless service to humanity across the board. He is one man that loves putting smiles on people’s faces no matter what it will cost him. He is one man that is so accessible to a fault, that people do say that if all leaders were like him then the world would have been a better place. His love for the masses is indeed a massive one.
I watched him closely and concluded that this man Abass Adigun is truly a God-sent to many youths, men, widows, women’s empowerment, job opportunity and education of his constituency.
He has contributed meaningfully in education, security, youth, widows and women empowerment. That is in addition to moving of motions for new laws and amendment old law and bills in the floor of the House. He is so passionate about the development of his constituency and reduction of unemployment rate through job creation and opportunities.
As the Vice-Chairman House Committee On Airforce, he facilitated recruitment of some youths into the Nigeria Airforce, Army and Navy. Over 150 youths and women were trained in Agro-mechanized farming with kick-up cash grant, empowerment of women in different trades with cash to support their business and of economic development in many batches, empowerment of young professionals in barbing, carpentry and building works through his educational support scheme. Others include provision of free tutorial centre for secondary school and UTME candidates, provision of writing materials for students, procurement of over 120 UTME forms for indigent students in his constituency, enlistment of 150 youths and women’s into FG MSME Grant for first batch and another 160 youths and women for the second batch, enlistment of over 150 youths into Npower program, Over 300 youths into NDE survival fund, support for 50 women with cash through his foundation, enlistment of 30 women into FG rural empowerment scheme, among others.
One is not surprised that he is doing this as he is only emulating his leader Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State in reaching out to the vulnerable in the society.
Hon. Abass Adigun Agboworin in terms of human capacity building is second to none as he is on a daily basis reaching out to people to better their lives and he is doing all these in humility through his foundation (A3) Abass Adigun Agboworin Foundation. He has been showing commitment to better education in Ibadan North East/Ibadan South-East Federal Constituency.
He is the only federal lawmaker in Oyo State who continued his free holiday coaching with free writing materials for Senior Secondary School students (SS2 & SS3) in all year round for the two local governments in his constituency.
He obtained the last UTME forms for 200 students and as a result of the lesson, we have over 30 students that scored more than 200 points in the exam, with the highest of 306 score mark. The candidate is also one of the first ten in Oyo State.
He provides scholarship to students of his tutorial centre who score good points in the last UTME exam.
Rep. Member Abass Agboworin is indeed a succor giver to so many and it is my earnest prayer that God will continue to bless,guide and protect him for more of this selfless service to humanity.
