The Executive Secretary, Odo Otin North Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Mr. Akeem Seriki has eulogised the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammad Buhari for the disbursement of huge amount of money to vulnerable households in the council.
He said, it is only a focused and selfless leader with a masses-friendly party manifesto that can touch the lives of the masses and the less privileged throughout the nation with such huge amount of money, despite the present economic situation of the country.
According to a statement by the council’s Information Officer, Adeyinka Adetona, the Executive Secretary opined that N10, 000 to the benefitting vulnerable households would go a long way to reduce poverty, increase and improve households’ consumptions and consequently improve human capital development index.
The council boss also commended the handlers of the programme, the National Cash Transfer Office (Office of the Vice President), the State Cash Transfer Unit and all the facilitators for the smooth and rancour-free disbursement of the money to the beneficiaries.
While charging the beneficiaries to also pay back to the society by supporting the government within their capacity, he said, that is the only way they could appreciate the government which has shown commitment to their well-being.
The beneficiaries could not hide their feelings as they showed gratitude to the government and the APC for the commitment to their welfare in spite of the noticeable economic hardship in the country.
