All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains inÂ Osun State has hailed the empowerment and philanthropic gesture of a senior Lawyer and a former aspirant of the Federal House of Representatives, Barrister Ayodele Musibau Kusamotu, who recently feted constituents from Odo-Otin/Boripe/Ifelodun federal constituency.
Â Using his foundation, the Ayodele Musibau Kusamotu (AMK), the Ikirun-born politician and legal luminary distributed food items and fabrics to over 5,000 persons both young and old especially women.
The distribution was preceded by different traditional dance steps and melodious songs hailing Kusamotu as God-sent and as a man who feels the pulse of the common men in his society.
The disabled too were not left behind as they were given special attention towards ensuring that they get their own share of the items.
Party leaders present extolled his virtues noting that he had been empowering the people for over 10 years in spite of the fact that he had never held any political office or appointment at any level.
A party chieftain of the party, Alhaji Fatal Diekola, a former Commissioner of Information, HonourableÂ SundayÂ Akere, Hon Fatal Bamidele Araba and Bayo Daoudu took turns to appreciate his empowerment programmes.
Diekola described Kusamotu as a unique man with heart of gold and urged him to present himself for future elections assuring him that the people would back his ambition.
In the same vein, Akere noted that he has been following the activitiesÂ of Kusamotu for over a decade, adding that he is not surprised at his benevolence because his father and Uncles were always caring for the people at all times.
Another twist to the event was a gathering of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders who met him and pleaded that he should contest under its platform boasting that the PDP would beÂ a party to beat in theÂ 2018 election in the state.
Responding, Kusamotu thanked the leaders and his people for the show of affection and for always honouring him with their presence whenever he is in the state.Â He assured them that he would continue to cater for their welfare in his own little way.
He however declared that he had not made up his mind whether to run or not or the party platform that he would use but promised that whatever the people and his supporters want will be done.
According to him, â€œI thank you all for your show of love and affection.Â Your welfare would continue to be my priority and as my people, I will heedÂ your call to run whenever you want me to.
He urged them to continue to be steadfast and committed to the party’s Ideals adding that he is neither a PDP or APC aspirant for now. “I am for all of you. My love for you all transcends party divides and you can be assured of my continued loyalty to this cause.
â€œThe foundation for over six years ensures monthly medical care for all the communities twice besides picking up their hospital bills andÂ other empowerment,â€ he said.
