“Adeogun loves his people and he deserves your support to do more,” He concluded.
Equipment like Sewing machine, Chafing dish, hair dryer, Gas cooker among others were distributed to at least 80 beneficiaries.
While presenting the items, Adeogun assured his people that more will come for the benefit of the people.
Adeogun said; “Today, we are trying to solve the problem of unemployment in our constituency. I can assure you that for the number of years I will be spending in this office, we will do more.
“We have 80 beneficiaries here today and this includes artisans and business owners who we have trained in Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko on the basics of entrepreneurship. A week training on modern fashion designing was also organized for selected tailors from our constituency in Lagos.
