‘Apo Aanu’, a monthly welfare assistance initiative hurled by Ikorodu federal lawmaker, Hon. Babajimi Benson MHR is aimed at alleviating hunger across his waterbed district.
Entrenched in his foodbank endeavour spearheaded via his iCare foundation, the February 2023 edition of the starvation quenching scheme, lived up to expectations, catering to over 500 residents in Ikorodu division.
Dated on the 5th, the program harboured young, elderly, less privileged and disabled persons, putting smiles on the faces of dwellers.
As Nigerians are thrust under pressure to make ends meet due to a shortage of money circulation as a result of the new naira design, leaders like Rep. Babajimi Benson have rendered his generous program an avenue to bring hope to his constituents.
Alighting at the national statesman’s constituency office, where the program took place, Ikorodu News Network (INN) saw visibly delighted individuals being handed their packages after retaining a ticket, issued to beneficiaries to properly coordinate the disbursements.
While elders were replenished with utterances of prayers directed at Rep. Babajimi Benson, others were pouring out songs of praise towards ‘JB’ as he’s fondly dubbed for his consistent kind gesture to fulfilling the needs of his people.
Seeking a re-election bid to the green chamber, Jimi Benson is the accepted All Progressive Congress (APC) flag-bearer for Ikorodu federal constituency come February 25th 2023.
Barely 3 days prior, he was awarded the most outstanding politician by Oriwu Sun Newspaper.
