Ilorin Youths Disgrace Senator Oloriegbe , Reject his Cassava Empowerment, say Saraki had never insulted Emirates like him
….Emirates had never been so humiliated under Sarakis leadership – angry Constituents
It was an harvest of shame Yesterday for kwara Central Senator, Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe and his aides who invited some selected APC members toWarah area of Ilorin where they lined up some tubers of cassava and frying pots to be distributed to constituents including aged women under a program the Senator’s office tagged as ZIP Empowerment.
The program was ongoing well until around 2pm when some angry youths suspected to be APC members storm the venue and vandalise the Cassava tubers before they are being handed over to beneficiaries. The feasibly angry APC youths who were not invited to the program claimed they were tipped by insiders who told them Senator Oloriegbe was about to flag a new batch of ridiculous empowerments just as he did the last time he painted a Gaari Processing hut that was built by past administration.
It took intervention of some police officers and civil defence men deployed to the venue to halt the angry youths from disrupting the program as they were prevented from gaining access to where some of Oloriegbe aides were seated .
One of the angry youths who was vituperating from afar as recorded by our correspondents was heard saying they would not fold their arms as youths and watch Senator Oloriegbe brings emirate people to disrepute noting that the Senator could have lines up his children for such empowerment if he truly believe in what he is doing .
“Oloriegbe you are finished , is this what you called empowerment ? We will not allow you to continue to ridicule our aged women with this rubbish , you should have come here with your own children and relatives and give these Cassava to them so that we can take you serous”
A lady who was spotted among the angry youths was also heard saying this is not how Saraki treat our people, of Oloriegbe is bereft of ideas of how to use his office judiciously, he should seek knowledge from Saraki.
“Let me tell you this empowerment is the height of disgrace to youths of kwara central , Saraki that we voted out had never treated us with this kind of disdain .we voted him because we thought he could do it better but he has shown us he is not interested in progress of Emirate, if they don’t understand how to use their office to benefit our people, let them consult Saraki for ideas or resign for better people to come in” angry Miss Habeebat submitted .
Oloriegbe line up Cassava and 4 pieces of frying pots for 25 young women who were drafted as beneficiaries of the empowerment
Some of the protesting youths were arrested but later released by men of civil defence who joined other security personnel to prevail over the incidence .
