A member of Osun House of Assembly, Mr Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, says development of rural communities through empowerment will go a long way to alleviate poverty in the society

Oyintiloye , who is the House Committee Chairman on Information and Strategy made the remarks during an empowerment programme he organised for farmers,  Artisans,  widow and aged  on Wednesday at  Ilare-Ijesa in  Obokun East Local Council Development Area.

The lawmaker said no amount of support is little to move people from one level of vulnerability to another stressing that contributing positively to the development of his immediate constituency was his priority.

 "No matter the economic challenges, I will continue to strive to give back to the people who have reposed their confidence in him and elected as their representative."

Oyintiloye (APC-Obokun State Constituency) said the empowerment  programme  was in line with Governor,  Rauf Aregbesola commitment to agriculture as well as improving  the living standard of the people.

While commending the electorate for their support, Oyintiloye  said he would continue to make himself available at all time.

Also, more than 62 widows as well as 93 aged were empowered with money and  clothing.

While 358 artisans were empowered with various working tools.
