The lawmaker representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Honourable Akin Alabi, has distributed 200 new laptops worth N3.5 million to selected youths who participated in the three-day digital marketing training facilitated by SERVICOM, an agency of the Federal Government.

He said if given the opportunity to represent his constituents again, he will build on all the good initiatives aimed at making life meaningful for his them by doubling his efforts in order to spread the dividends of democracy to his people.
He reeled out his scorecard in the past three years to include youth empowerment, women empowerment, constituency development, improvement of education, infrastructural development, constituency outreach, brilliant representation at the lower chamber with the presentation of developmental motions and bills among others, noting that he is ready to do more if his constituents are ready to trust him again with their votes.
