The Lawmaker representing Ibadan South East Constituency II at the Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Popoola Ademola Olusegun also known as Popson, has empowered his constituents with cash.
The cash was given to about 115 trainers for impacting vocational knowledge and skills on the youths who were placed in their care.
The trainers whose vocational schools are tailoring, shoe making, computer school, make up and nylon cutting were given N10,000 each as compensation for training each trainee.
At the event that took place at his constituency office, Popson as fondly called said the empowerment for the youths would have come into place earlier but the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, EndSARS protest and other logistics hindered its possibility at the scheduled time.
He added that the possibility for the equipment to get tl the trained youths will be done between March and April, 2021.
He thanked the trainers for their patience, diligence and ability to train the beneficiaries.
Also speaking, Hon. Abdullah Abdulrasaq Omosheu who represents Ibadan South East constituency I appreciated his colleague for the empowerment programme which he said would reduce rate of poverty in the constituencies.
