For six consecutive months running, 1,144 beneficiaries of the Senator Tokunbo Abiru COVID-19 Financial Assistance received direct credit in their respective bank accounts today across 98 wards of the 16 Local Council areas in the Lagos East Senatorial District.
The assistance scheme which is expanding every month to accommodate more vulnerable people in the district kicked off in January, 2021 in fulfilment of the promise made by the Senator during the electioneering to provide succour to the poorest of the poor across Lagos East Senatorial District.
Selected beneficiaries have been getting N5000 assistance bimonthly (i.e once in two months) since the beginning of the year and it will run through the year by way of direct credit to their bank accounts.
Beneficiaries include physically-challenged persons, unemployed youth, widows and other vulnerable people in the senatorial district.
Senator Tokunbo Abiru is keeping faith with his promise to always prioritise policies and legislative agenda that will be of benefit to the greatest number of people.
In less than 6 months in the saddle, Senator Tokunbo Abiru sponsored a bill titled, ‘The Copyright Act Repeal And Re-enactment Bill, 2021’ that will replace the extant Copyright Act Cap C28 LFN 2004.
The critical bill that will revolutionize the knowledge and intellectual property industry has scaled second reading on the floor of the Senate.
Concerned about the plight of constituents and other road users plying Ikorodu/Sagamu Road and Ikorodu/Itoikin/Epe Epe Road, the distinguished Senator moved a motion calling on the Federal Government to urgently intervene on the two critical roads.
Within the same period, the Senator also facilitated four blocks of 24 classrooms to Aga Primary School in Ikorodu. Construction is currently underway. The four blocks have six classrooms each and 16 toilets.
