The lawmaker representing Ibadan North East/South East federal constituency, Hon. Adedapo Lam-Adesina on Saturday joined others to commissioned the Ibadan South East office of the National Union of Teachers.
This is just as the youthful lawmaker and chieftain of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, presented browsing devices to constituents who he trained in information communication technology. They were trained on how to become money transfer agents and harness the potential in ICT, equipping them on how to overcome likely challenges that may surface during their operations.
This, according to him, is one of the ways of reducing unemployment in the state.
The constituents were later given browsing tablets, while he urged participants to utilize the skills gained very well and make themselves a better person.
Earlier at Odinjo where he commissioned the NUT office, the chairman of the union, Comrade Onifade P. A. while giving his opening speech said that the lawmaker’s contributions to education in the local government is highly commendable ranging from quiz competition and sporting activities which are solely for students and the teachers are benefiting directly from him.
The immediate past chairman of the union, Comrade Aremu Gboyega explained how the lawmaker sought their support before the 2015 election and how they supported hoping that he won’t turn out to be the usual kind of politician they always know.
He said the lawmaker was called to grace the foundation laying ceremony but the aftermath of it was that the union received a surprising huge amount of money from him that led to the completion of the office.
Speaking, an obviously-elated Lam-Adesina explained how happy he was to be part of the event owing to the fact that “it is very rare in clime like this for such event to still hold, union leaders would have started romancing incoming representatives while they abandon the outgoing ones.
He appreciated them also for recognizing his contributions towards the development of teachers and education in general.
For a smooth running of the union activities, he has as well gave the union a motorcycle which can be used to generate income and increase the IGR of the union at the local government level and to aid teachers welfare.
