It was a moment of joy for the people of Efunwole Layout/Academy and Texaco/Academy Communities of Egbeda Local Government area of Ibadan, Oyo state,as the director of publicity and strategy of the All Progressives Congress APC, Mr. Olawale Sadare donated boreholes for their use.
At the commissioning which took place today, the media expert said that the gesture was borne out of the need to give back to the society that made him.
According to him, ”I see politics as a means of serving people. Politics should not be seen as a means of amassing wealth; there are opportunities in politics. I was motivated to join politics by the examples some of our leaders have set and not for any other means.”
He added that: “Nobody gave me money to undergo this project. No senator or House of Representatives’ member sponsored this project. I challenge anybody who knows anybody that has a hand in it to come out.
“I grew up in this area and I know how water used to be a major problem. Then, you cannot tell when you would come back when you go searching for water.
“Then, you cannot sink well anywhere. We came here in 1978. Water has always been our major problem. So, this project is also a way of giving back.
In his own remark, caretaker committee chairman of Ajorosun local council development area, Mr. Yinka Adeyemi commended the donor, saying that “you have done well.
The leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Egbeda local government, Alhaji Babatunde Asunmo said he was surprised by the gesture, urging others in his shoes to emulate the donor.
