The Commissioner for Social Development, Mrs Deborah Bosede Aremu has come to the aid of a disabled, Taye Kajogbola by sending food items running to hundreds of thousands in response to the disable’s cry for help.
Mrs Aremu who was represented at the presentation on Sunday by a Director in the Ministry of Social Development, Mrs Musa B. Adishetu said that on seeing the SOS sent by the disabled addressed to His Excellency Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq in a news medium, she felt obliged to quickly do something before the Governor reacts as a way of proving the mantra of the administration.
“I read in the news meduim the cry of this disabled young man and I felt the need to act immediately, even before his Excellency gave an instruction or does anything. I can assure you that all commissioners in this regime work at the same frequency with His Excellency because he made us know that we owe the people a duty of putting smiles on their faces as dividend of democracy.”
“This gesture is from the ministry of Social development as a swift response to your distress call to the Governor and we assure you that His Excellency will respond to your cry for help. Our government is voted in to help the masses and that is what we have come to demonstrate to you.”
The Governor’s aide who spoke with much confidence said that every member of the Kwara Cabinet has the orientation to works at the same frequency with His Excellency on the mission to make the people enjoy dividends of democracy by putting smiles on their face no matter how little the gesture.
In his response, the disabled, Taye Kajogbola who expressed much surprise at the gesture of government said he is short of words over the Commissioners gesture.
He said that his coming out to the press was because he was frustrated and thought all hopes had ended, so he summoned the courage to step out and speak with the press.
He prayed that God will further strengthen the government of Kwara State and see them through in their mission to deliver dividends of democracy to all kwarans.
Kajogbola while narrated his ordeal and how he became disabled after a ghastly motor accident that almost claimed his life said that his newly wedded bride had to leave him as a result of the situation in which he found himself, helpless and hopeless and now live with his aged father but expressed confidence that his faith in God never waivered for a moment.
“I cannot thank you enough but I really appreciate. Everything crumbled; the lady that I married had to return to her parent when the accident happened. The reason why I am alive today is known only to God because, everyone concluded that I was dead and I knew that I actually died. I am helpess but my faith in God remains unshaken. I have hope for a better future.”
The officials of the Ministry of Social Development that came for the presentation included the head of the delegation Mrs Musa Adishetu, Director Finance and Supllies, Mrs Yusuf Abibat, officer in charge of Children Reception Centre, CRC, Mr Sunday Odediran, Procurement officer and Mr AbdulRazaq Akande, who piloted the vehicle that brought the contingents to Mr Kajogbola’s house at Muritala Mohammed way Ilorin.
