My democracy dividend to fill infrastructural deficit in Kwara South – Funke Adedoyin

By Matthew Denis

A member of the House of Representatives representing Oke-Ero/Ekiti/Ifelodun/Irepodun Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Hon Funke Deborah Adedoyin has said her major priority as part of her dividend of democracy is to fill the huge gap of infrastructural deficit in Kwara south.

The Lawmaker made the disclosure during an interview with pilot Aviation at Ilorin international airport.

According to her “there are so much going on in my constituency; we had health outreach programmes in all the four local governments but my focus has been on the infrastructural deficit in the South particularly at the Federal level. T

“So my first priority was the Ilorin Omu Aran Agbe road that was included in last year budget and awarded as a rolling contract. We are hoping that as they progress from the Egbe end we’ll soon get towards it.

“As for me that’s the major key in terms of addressing the infrastructural deficit in Kwara South because you can get an expressway coming from the Ganmo axis all the way to Kogi with influx of goods and people.

Adedoyin stressed that at the constituency level 95 percent of the Ilorin- Egbe road is within her constituency adding that it is an ongoing project that I’m constantly working on.

The lawmaker stated that she has done a lot of outreach with the orphanage homes, medical programme, boreholes scheme, local governments road rehabilitation among others.

“We are doing a scheme on boreholes in every polling unit; we have started with two in every ward because of the weather we have to stop. But once the rain stops the project will continue.

“I’m doing township roads in all my four local governments. My zonal intervention is to serve with the Nigerian Army Core Engineering and they are doing amazing job. I’m impressed because it was supposed to be road construction but we ended up doing water channelization apart from the drainage, we constructed many bridges across the stretch of roads.

“We will move to other local governments as federal government releases are done”, sh submitted.

Adedoyin said she has initiated a welfare scheme for members of her constituency who have challenges and emergency issues relating to deaths, births, medical operations, exam fees and embarked on microcredit scheme as a means of creating employment and poverty reduction among the people.

“I believed that during my campaign what people kept demanding for is water and roads and I promised to fulfil it. My intention is to assist the majority who voted for me not individuals.
