“Foodbank program is not to win people’s hearts, rather, what we are doing is to support our people and enable them to feed themselves for a while,” he explained.

 

On the forthcoming election, Babajimi appealed to the electorates to vote massively for him and all other candidates on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) come February 16 and March 2 respectively.

 

The event had in attendance amongst others, the Head of Service, Lagos State, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, wife of the legislator, Mrs Jumoke Benson, former S.A. and Acting Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Lagos State, Hon Adebimpe Akinsola, Council Chairmen, LGAs and Wards APC Chairmen, Council legislators and Supervisors, over 500 beneficiaries.

 

The programme, since its inception in 2016  has no doubt given succour to the less privileged, disabled, elderly and others in need through its monthly supplies.
