At least 750 people have been empowered to do small businesses in the 9 local government areas under Oyo South Senatorial district of Oyo state.

The Oyo state Governor Abiola Ajimobi who led members of his cabinet to the Obafemi Awolowo stadium Ibadan where Senator Femi Lanleyin distributed items worth over 65million naira to his constituents described the gesture as unprecedented.

He added that his government is committed to ensuring all able bodied men and women in the state are gainfully implored and charged other political office holders to learn to give back meaningfully to the community.

Items like deep freezers, generators, wheel chairs, motorcycles, computers, and many artisan tools were given to people along with seed grants to take off their businesses.

The Empowerment Programme signalled the beginning of a new era within the ACN in Oyo state as it was the 1st public function involving both the Governor and Senator Lanleyin and Gov. Ajimobi gave a stern warning to all sowing seeds of discord to desist or find another party as all rancour between the factions within are being addressed.
