The Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Bolaji Olagbaju, and the Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Tolu Ige, led other lawmakers to make the presentation of the relief materials.


Presenting canopy and chairs to the NIMC on behalf of the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Adeoye Aribasoye, and other lawmakers of the 7th Assembly, the Deputy Speaker stated that the materials would provide relief to the people who usually wait under the sun at the NIMC centers.


“At the Plenary sitting of 15th February, 2024, the Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Tolu Ige, brought the attention of the House to the agony of Ekiti people at the NIMC centers in the State. Both young and old usually endure excruciating hours of waiting under the sun for NIN-related issues,” the Deputy Speaker explained.


The Ekiti State Coordinator of the National Identity Management Commission, Mr. Taiwo Ogundare, expressed gratitude for the intervention and promised to convey the message to the relevant stakeholders and the National headquarters of the Commission.


Furthermore, the Ekiti Assembly also donated skill acquisition items, such as a generating set, sewing machines, and clippers, to the Children Correctional Home along Afao Road, Ado Ekiti, as a way of supporting the State Government’s efforts.


The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Tolu Ige, stated that the future of the children at the correctional center should be protected and secured, and the donated items were meant to provide them with direction and purpose in life.


The Sectional Head of the Center, Oladele Afolabi, lauded the initiative of the Seventh Assembly and assured the lawmakers that the items would be put to good use for the benefit of the children at the center.


In addition to the donation of relief materials, the Ekiti State House of Assembly has also unveiled its Legislative Agenda, which covers the period from 2023 to 2027. The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Adeoye Aribasoye, stated that the Legislative Agenda highlights the importance of effective governance and the role of the legislative arm in shaping policies and enacting laws that benefit society as a whole.


The Former Clerk of the House, Mr. Tola Esan, praised the 7th Assembly, describing it as a unique and the best so far in the history of the Ekiti House of Assembly.
