2,500 Tokunbo Abiru COVID-19 Financial Relief Beneficiaries Get Direct Credits For 11th Months


The Senator representing the Lagos East Senatorial district in the National Assembly, Sen. Tokunbo Abiru, on Tuesday made direct bank transfers to batch A beneficiaries in the 2500 vulnerable constituents pool for the 11 months consecutively.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Special Adviser On Media and Publicity to the Senator, Enitan Olukotun.

Olukotun explained that the beneficiaries who have been receiving direct credits from the Senator since January 2021 were drawn from the 98 wards of the 16 Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas, LCDAs in the Lagos East Senatorial District.

“Beneficiaries include people with physical disabilities, unemployed youth, widows and other vulnerable people in the senatorial district.

“Abiru, whose interventions and programmes are targeted at the larger number of people in the constituency, has been impacting lives in an unprecedented manner since he got into the saddle last December.

“In less than a year, he has achieved so much to the astonishment of many in the constituency and beyond.

“Concerned about the plight of constituents and other road users plying Ikorodu/Sagamu Road and Ikorodu/Itoikin/Epe Epe Road, the distinguished Senator moved a motion calling on the Federal Government to urgently intervene on the two critical roads. The intervention with necessary follow-ups yielded positive outcomes.

“The Federal Government has included the funding of Ikorodu-Shagamu, in the SUKUK Financing program and included Ikorodu-Itoikin in the 2022 budget.

“The Sukuk Financing Program is an assured financing program that will accelerate the completion of Ikorodu-Sagamu road,” the statement said.


Within the same period, the Senator also facilitated four blocks of 24 classrooms with compliments of furniture and 16 toilets to Aga Primary School in Ikorodu”, he added.
