“The management of Bond Group of Companies under the leadership of Mr Aderemi Omotosho, Amo Byng Poultry Farm of Mr Ayoola Oduntan, Best Legacy International School, including Mr Tosho Akinrinola, Ms Wendy Wen from the UK, and other individuals and friends who joined us to provide more relief to my people during this period,” Adisa mentioned.
He added: “This is the second instalment of relief materials we have given, and this is why I keep reiterating the need to court partnerships to get more things done. That is what our mantra, ‘EJEKASEYI’ is all about. In fact, one of our donors, Genesis Farms, is not exactly in Afijio, but they joined us because they share this vision of continuous and direct impact, especially during this time.”
In addition to the food packs and packs of turkey and chicken distributed, the Seyi Adisa constituency office has also perfected plans to make and distribute over 7,500 facemasks to the people, security agencies, government essential workers, among others across Afijio, this, according to him, would serve as part of efforts to help the constituents fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
