According to the Chairman, “When Hon. Abide came to visit us in NUJ some time ago, he discovered that the Air Conditioners he donated to NUJ were not put in use, so he enquired to know the challenge and I told him that we don’t have a generator that can power them.
“On his own, he promised to give us a generator that will enable us to use the equipment effectively. Behold, today in fulfillment of the promise, he sent through his Chief of Staff a 20KVA Mikano generator set to the Kogi State Council of NUJ.
“What he has done is exceptional, it is not every politician that will promise and fulfill, but in his case, all promises he made even to the people of his constituency have graciously been fulfilled.
“This four years of Hon. Abide, that he has done, deserve more by God’s grace and after his second term, the electorate in Kogi West should give him another mandate to serve in the upper chamber of the national assembly so that he can deliver more dividend of democracy to the people” he advised.
Comrade Momohjimoh assured the kind-hearted donor that the generator will be judiciously utilized to serve the purpose it is meant for.
“We must inform, educate and entertain people and as such we will put the generator into use we highly appreciate his effort and we will continue to partner with him at all times” he assured.
Presenting the generator and the receipts to the union on behalf of the federal lawmaker, the Chief of Staff Hon. Shola Adebola said the fulfillment of the promise was to enable the union members to perform their functions and assured that Hon. Abide would continue to partner with the media for the development of the country.
