The Chairman, Community Chest Council in  Oyo State, Ambassador Olusola Olagunju has urged politicians and philanthropists to assist the poor and the less privileged to reduce crimes and poverty in the society.

Ambassador Olagunju said this is necessary and imperative to re-awake the consciousness of politicians and philanthropists to channel their resources to where it will have a positive impact.

She said: “Politicians, especially those in public office need to reach out and consult widely in order to enable them identify areas they need to provide with adequate empowerment schemes and by doing this, they will be reducing crimes and  poverty index to the barest  minimum amongst the people.”

Olagunju, who attributed the high crime rate in the society to poverty admonished public office holders and government at all levels to rise to the occasion by assisting the poor and the less privileged around them.

She admonished politicians who dole out few items to selected members of their constituencies and local government to ensure they reach out to more members with adequate helping materials and items.
