In a bid to assist business owners to expand their capital base, the lawmaker representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon Akin Alabi, has distributed support fund to 500 beneficiaries.
In the special empowerment programme, 500 business owners in Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency received N50,000 from the lawmaker as support fund for their businesses.
Speaking about the special empowerment programme, Alabi said it was different, because he responded to the request and clamour of his constituents who called for the inclusion of the male gender in the empowerment scheme.
He promised that he will not relent in spreading the dividend of democracy among his constituents and the delivery of his service to humanity.
The lawmaker added that he will continue to support business owners in his constituency in fulfillment of his campaign promises and to ensure they are engaging in useful ventures to expand their businesses.
