What Projects Did Hon. Barr. Omosede Igbinedion Achieved In Her First Tenure? (3)

In the ongoing series listing verifiable projects the former youngest female legislator, Hon. Omosede Igbinedion achieved in her period as the lawmaker representing the people of Ovia Northeast & Ovia Southwest Federal Constituency, we promised to talk about the roads she did at that time.

Before she assumed office as a federal legislator in May 2015, the people resident in Ohen ward had no access road, and the woman of impeccable humility fondly called Ovia's Pride upon assumption of office embarked on the project of opening an access road in the ward. Soon after, she swiftly facilitated and promptly commenced the construction of a 7km road in Okhun. This particular road project was nearing its 75% completion when suddenly, the APC government forcefully interrupted the work.

Not deterred but firmly determined to offer the best of representative governance to her people, she flagged off a 5km road project at Ugbokun in Ovia Northeast. This project was completed and to this day remains durable. Aside from the numerous road projects the former member House Committee on Aviation facilitated, implemented, and delivered, she also gave life-saving empowerment to the constituents. She gave out start-up capital to her people in need of funds for business ventures.

She also gave working equipment such as hairdressing machines, sewing machines, and other items to the women so that they could all be well established in entrepreneurial business. Cars and motorcycles were also distributed to the men for business and private purposes. Indigent students all smiled at the school with bursaries.

Of the most unforgettable moment was the day she attracted the then Speaker, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara to the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs camp within her constituency after she raised a motion of urgent intervention in the House for flood victims. The outcome of the visit to the IDPs camp by the then Honourable Speaker was the enormous supply of relief materials in 2016.

The items in the relief material include mattresses, food packages, clothes, foot wears, mosquito nets, etc.

The people of Ovia federal constituency have not had it so good since Hon. Omosede left office in 2019. They want to feel her life-transforming impact once more. They believed that she was the only developmental leader who had their interests at heart. And true to their beliefs, the University of Wisconsin master's degree holder wants the best living conditions for her people. And for this reason, she is out once again contesting for a return to the National Assembly in 2023 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party. She assures us that she will relentlessly do much more to make the constituency a greater one. We must continue to trust the leadership of Ovia's Pride, our pride.
