Fed. Rep, Akande-Sadipe Settles Medical Bill for Indigent Constituent, Empowers Physically Challenged

The member representing Oluyole Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Rep. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe has cleared hospital bills of a Constituent, Mr. Kunle Olanite, who is suffering from Glaucoma.

Akande-Sadipe’s gesture was received by applause from members of her Constituency, during a presentation ceremony on Wednesday in Ibadan.

At the event, Akande-Sadipe also empowered two physically challenged constituents, with cash grants and a chest freezer.

The Lawmaker empowered Mrs. Muyibat Babalola, who is visually impaired with a business start-up grant, while Mr. Tella Ademola, a mobility impaired Constituent, received a chest freezer.

Rep. Tolu Akande-Sadipe, who Chairs the House Committee on Diaspora said she offered Mr. Kunle Olanite funds for his medical treatment and surgical intervention on a diagnosed Glaucoma/Retinal Damage.

“This award was given in reference to the medical report obtained from the Oyo State Hospital Management Board. Everybody needs sight for a fruitful existence and where we can prevent sight loss we must support our fellow mankind”, she said.

While Akande-Sadipe wished the patient a speedy recovery, she equally urged him to make use of the grant exactly for the purpose it is meant for.

Responding on behalf of the recipients, a relative of the patient, Mrs. Romoke Olanike said Akande-Sadipe’s gesture is laced with spiritual connotation.

According to her, when a woman with milk of human kindness practically demonstrates it, it should not be mistaken for politics.
