Ekiti council lawmaker visits hospital, presents birthday gift to patients



As part of activities lined up for celebration of his birthday, a council lawmaker representing Ikole Ward 3, Mr. Ayodeji Olanrewaju has visited Ekiti State Specialist Hospital, Ikole -Ekiti to present gift items to all patients at the hospital.

The councillor who was accompanied to the hospital on Saturday by his mother, siblings and friends said he decided to mark his birthday at the hospital to give praise to God who made him witness another beautiful year on earth.

He said the idea of reaching out to patients was conceived during his stint with Ekiti first lady, Her Excellency, Mrs. Feyisetan Fayose whom he worked with as a social media reporter before he was elected councillor in December 2017, saying he has always prayed to God to give him opportunity to serve so that he too can imitate the good gesture of the governor's wife in dolling out gifts to patients.

"I was on the entourage of the governor's wife to various hospitals for distribution of relief materials to the patients and when I became councillor; I told myself that my first birthday will be celebrated this way and I am happy that the dream has finally come to reality.

"I was born in this hospital while my mother worked here for 35 years. So I thank God for His grace in my life and I promise to replicate the gesture before my tenure expires", he said.

In her remarks, the mother of the celebrant, Mrs. Olanrewaju appreciated God in the life of his son and prayed for quick recovery of the patients who received birthday gifts from his son.

Olanrewaju is a staunch member of the PDP Social Media Team headed by Special Assistant to Governor Ayodele Fayose on New Media and Public Communication, Lere Olayinka.
