Recall that during his tenure of office, Hon. Ogunkanmi impacted positively in the lives of his people, embarking on several support and empowerment programmes for his people, despite not taking a dime for constituency projects as a state lawmaker.
While speaking with newsmen in his hometown IleOgbo, the former banker said the empowerment programme was to appreciate his constituents and render support for their economic advancement as the hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy bites harder.
He also added that he has been supporting his people before, during office, and promised to continue the support even after the office.
One of the beneficiaries, Mr. Akanni Odunayo said, “It’s indeed always good to show love to your people because even the bible says your gift will make a way for you. Ogunkanmi’s light can never be dimmed by mischief makers because his good deeds always speak for him.
