While speaking with journalists, one of the beneficiaries, Mr. Aboyewa, a photographer Popularly known as Tompology said:
“I have been following and working with politicians but none have assisted my business this way. When he(Hon. Adeogun) came as Mr. Adeogun two years ago and promised to liberate us. I thought he was just joking and making promises for the sake of election, but now he has proven to be true to his words. This is the third employment session in just one year of his tenure. The camera I got is a unique one. It will surely raise the standard and profit of my business. I also got other studio kits to help uplift my picture quality. My words of advice for other constituents is for them to all come together and team up to support Ade Adeogun and his Politics, so he can add greater values to more people.”
Another benefitiary, Mrs. Ajisafe Aina said:” I can only pray that God continue to lift him (Adeogun) up. Everything of his plans shall succeed in Jesus name. The sewing machine I got will surely help me to set up a good shop and make more profit in my tailoring business.”
Many of the beneficiaries described Adeogun as a promise keeper.
They promised to support him in all his political moves.
