The Senator from Lagos West Senatorial District and Chairman Senate Committee on Finance, Senator Solomon Adeola (Yayi) APC, has expressed satisfaction and happiness at the progress of his facilitated constituency projects in 2020 budget.
Adeola who registered his satisfaction at the end of the fish production and business training and empowerment for the first batch of 150 youths spread across Lagos West Senatorial at the Federal College of Fisheries and Marine Technology, Victoria Island, Lagos, explained that the training was a practical demonstration of sustainability, teaching a man to fish for a living instead of giving him fish to eat for a period.
“This is yet another impactful project for the benefit of my constituents with direct and multiplier effects. So far, solar powered boreholes with 10 million cubic litre capacity and water treatment has been completed in Ikeja, Agege, Mushin and Alimosho local government areas as well as solar power street lights in Ajeromi-Ifelodun, Ikeja, Agege, Amuwo Odofin, Alimosho, Mushin, Badagry and Ojo LGAs. These projects affect my constituents directly and I am happy at the pace of execution by the agencies concerned.” He said
The Senator therefore pledges to continue the monitoring of all projects he is facilitating, which includes additional solar powered borehole and streetlights, installation of 500 KVA transformers already supplied as well as more training and empowerment with capital and equipment for his constituents adding that several occupational equipment like vulcanizing machines, sewing machines, grinders, hair dressing equipment and others will soon be distributed to constituents on basis of equality among the 28 LCDAs.
