Empowerment is a calculated ongoing procedure centred in the local community, on common respect, critical reflection, caring, and group participation, through which people lacking an equal share of valued resources gain greater access to and control over those resources.
It can also be seen as a process by which people gain control over their lives, democratic participation in the life of their community, and a critical understanding of their environment.
In his consecutive feat to make life fortunate for his entire constituents, the majority leader of the Lagos state house of assembly representing Ikorodu constituency 1, Hon SOB Agunbiade once again took empowerment to another level on the 4th of May 2022.
Aimed at facilitating community development and growth across his precincts, the bold legislator distributed fleets of mini mobility buses plus a bulk of packaged sewing machines and POS machines to individuals for free at his constituency office.
According to the chairman of the Majority leaders forum of Nigeria, Agunbiade stated that the empowerment scheme is positioned to raise aloft more residents out of obscurity, thereby procuring more job opportunities for them, which will, in turn, improve the standard of living for all inhabitants.

“Empowerment of this nature opens up the community to new ideas and strategies. This puts responsibility and decision making power in the hands of every constituent. It brings a new paradigm shift of prospects and growth catalysts to the grassroots” Agunbiade asserted
