Lagos politician and son of late popular monarch of Egbeda Land, Oba Samson Alade Balogun, Prince Adesegun Balogun, on Monday, August 14, 2017, gave succour to widows in his community through his empowerment programme.
The former two-term councillor invited widows numbering over 30 to his late father’s palace and gave them food items and some money to start small-scale businesses that would enable them to fend for their children.
Hon. Adesegun Balogun explained that he was motivated to embark on the programme because of the many sufferings and challenges that widows in this clime have to contend with.
Not only was he able to put smiles on their faces, they felt remembered and indeed realized that widowhood is not the end to life and hopelessness.
He also visited the motherless home on the same day to give out donations and gift worth thousands of Naira.
The young politician who promised to continue to support the orphans and widows, enjoins other politicians to follow suit.
