The legislator appreciated his constituents' support and cooperation with him and the party, despite the present situation in the country, saying that as soon as things improved government would not neglect them in the scheme of things.

Okedare who donated N1 million cash as empowerment to beneficiaries selected from 7wards in his constituency noted that it would go a long way in improving their various businesses and their lives positively.
