About 700 members of Sagamu State Constituency 1 have benefitted from various empowerment schemes provided by the lawmaker representing the constituency, Asiwaju Adeyinka Mafe.

Also, 250 graduates have been fixed for their various Industrial Training programs in the area.

The Assembly member, who is the Majority Leader of Ogun State House said the gestures were part of efforts to identify with his constituents.

Mafe, who spoke during a graduation ceremony held at the Akarigbo Palace in Sagamu area of the state, said the beneficiaries of the empowerment programme have been trained in different vocations.

The lawmaker also used the occasion to declare his intention to contest for House of Representatives slot in Remo Federal Constituency of the state.

According to the facilitator of the programme, the beneficiaries were trained in ICT, make-up, hair dressing, barbing, soap making, photography, catering, bead making, amongst others.

Mafe said the aim of the training was to take unemployed youths off the streets by fixing them in vocation of choice which he said culminated in the graduation.

Outstanding students of the vocational training were supported with startup kits while others were given certificate of operation to start their own businesses.

According to him, not only would the gesture help the trainees secure employment, they would also become employers of labour.
