A Philanthropist and Stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Otunba Dele Ologun over the weekend empowered over hundred indigent widows with cash gift to support their businesses.
The Politician who presented the money in cash to the recipients at his residence in Ita-Ogbolu country home, Akure North Local Government area of the State, tasked the beneficiaries to lucratively utilize the gift towards profit maximization.
In his words, the IT Expert said “although the money is small but i believe that if you use it appropriately, it will ameliorate your sufferings and if you can manage it well, it means you can manage a bigger amount.”
The Founder of the Dele Ologun Foundation who had earlier in the year distributed free JAMB forms to Indigent Students in his community vowed to continue to do more for his people.
Speaking at the event, the Caretaker Chairman of Akure North Local Government, Prince Segun Oluyede urged the beneficiaries to invest the money as it should be, saying that the donor would only be motivated to do more if they could make him proud through proper investment.
Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, a widow, Mrs Joke Oluwafemi thanked Ologun and members of his foundation for founding it worthy to give back to the people, promising to invest the money given to them lucratively.
The widows got N20, 000 each with a mandate from the foundation to invest the cash in small scale businesses.
Ologun also used the occasion to receive about 500 members of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The leader of the Defectors, Ajenifuja Abiola said him and others decided to join APC because of the benevolence and generosity of Ologun.
The Executive Secretary of the Foundation, Mr. Blessing Akinlosotu informed the gathering of the plans of the foundation to do more for the people, stating that many programmes are on the way for the people of the Community and the State in general.
