…Dr Oyebanji Reaches Children Correctional Centre, Orphanage and Transit Home

Wife of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Olayemi Oyebanji, has again put smiles on the faces of widows in the state as she gifted them food items and cash support to give them succour during the Yuletide season.

A total number of 102 indigent widows selected across the state had cause to smile on Friday as each of them received a bag containing different food items and N20,000 cash.

The bags contained rice, beans, maize and garri which were neatly packaged for the appreciative beneficiaries.

Apparently surprised at the gifts received, the widows spontaneously offered prayers for the First Lady, her husband, Governor Biodun Oyebanji and the success of the administration.

Speaking shortly before the food and cash largesse were distributed to the widows, the Governor’s wife said the gesture was aimed at extending hands of fellowship to the beneficiaries at the festive season.

She explained that the Christmas is a time of sharing and caring and a means to fulfill God’s injunction to care for the needy and the less privileged and minister to their needs.

Dr. Oyebanji explained that the administration led by her husband cares for the entire people of the state most the less privileged would not relent in bettering their lots.

The First Lady said all she needs from the beneficiaries are prayers for the Oyebanji Administration to continue make life better for the entire people of Ekiti State in line with the shared prosperity vision of the Governor.

She said: “One request I want to make from you is that we need your prayers from time to time. The Governor has the intention of ensuring that Ekiti people get the best and that their standard of living should improve.

“We want you to continue to pray for us because if things go well with the government, it will be well with the people and when you keep praying for this government, the good work will continue.”

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Aduke Ogundele, said she was surprised at the Christmas gifts from the First Lady which she said would cater to her needs even well beyond the festive period.

She said: “We are very grateful to the Governor’s wife for remembering us at this time because we never expected this would come and this has brought joys to our hearts.

“You yourself can see the passion with which we prayed for her. She has remembered us, God will also answer our prayers. My joy has no bounds today and I cannot hide it.”

Later in the day, Dr. Oyebanji also reached out to the inmates of the Children Correctional Centre, Ado Ekiti; Ekiti Transit Home, Ado Ekiti and Erelu Adebayo Orphanage, Iyin Ekiti.

The First Lady donated bags of rice, cartons of noodle, spaghetti and cash gifts to the inmates.
