Festive Lagos; Olusegun Cares Foundation Distributes Christmas Gifts



By: Fashina Shakiru.

A member of the All Progressives Congress, Lagos State, Hon Olusegun Idowu has distributed Christmas gifts for over one thousand five hundred households.

Speaking with newsmen on Friday he mentioned ”Olusegun Cares is an initiative that has spanned over 16th years to catering for less privileged and putting smiles on the faces of the community for those who do not have enough to celebrate this yuletide“.

According to him, what brought about this gesture was an elderly man who came to meet him 16 years ago, and requested, “my son give me money to buy Christmas chicken for this season”. Which caused him to feel that there were so many families like that who do not have such access to him.

Consequently, I made a decision to provide for the people irrespective of their Religious beliefs, political affiliation, tribe and ethnicity. Although I started with 50 packages of foodstuffs and chicken from there, it has increased tremendously to 1500 packages.”

The passion for this is also traceable to the scripture Proverbs.19; 17 “where the Bible says ‘when you give to the poor, you lend to God’ and God owes no man” So in doing this, GOD empowers us to make those who don’t have much to be happy and we do it every year.

As the 2023 election approaches, we implore Nigerians to vote APC at all levels.

Commenting, Hon Olawale Edu, Leader Lagos state APC, Ikoyi/Obalende LCDA, a close ally of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who also hails from Ikoyi/Obalende LCDA, noted this is part of democracy. This stalwart of the party is trying to ensure he puts a smile on the faces of people at this yuletide, particularly the elderly women and men.

This is part of democratic mobilization. He is propagating the name of party, is doing to make the candidates that we have right from our Presidential candidate, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, and all to the APC candidates in Ikoyi/Obalende LCDA by ensuring victory comes 2023 election.
