The Chairman, Odiolowo-Ojuwoye LCDA Hon Rasaq Olusola Ajala addressed the mammoth crowd that thronged the council to purchase the rams for Eid-l-Kabir, ILEYA festival today.
In his speech to the people, Hon Ajala said the initiative is geared toward helping those who are at lower levels of the ladder in our society.
He stressed that those who have the financial muscle to purchase the rams have no business buying.
He called on the people to be orderly in the way they go about purchasing the item.
He told the gathering that those who are not residents of the council can not benefit from the program.
He said, “Government belongs to the people.”
He, therefore, urged those who have already purchased the rams not to get another one to pave the for the vulnerable who have not got one.
“The youth who are here to buy to resell should leave the premises immediately,” HRA said.
“Once you have a valid voter’s cards that have the address of Odiolowo-Ojuwoye LCDA and have the receipt for the radio and television, you are eligible to purchase the ram” Ajala stated.
He assured the people that the program will be a continuous one and will expand in terms of several rams to be sold.
