Ekiti Governor’s Wife’s Empowerment Project to Benefit 25,000 Widows

Dr Olayemi Oyebanji, the wife of the Ekiti State Governor, has committed to improving the lives of widows by empowering them and providing support for their well-being and economic contribution at the grassroots level.

She emphasized the importance of not neglecting widows but instead offering them hope and assistance to care for themselves, and their children, and be active stakeholders in the Ekiti project. T

The screening of over 25,000 prospective beneficiaries under the Widows and Orphans Hope (WAOH) Project marks a crucial step towards its official inauguration and implementation, with ongoing registration to include more beneficiaries.

Oyebanji, who was represented at the event by WAOH Project Coordinator, Kemi Dairo explained that the screening process is vital to ensure that the right individuals receive the necessary relief materials and support.

Her words: “Through this project, Dr Olayemi Oyebanji is making a strong statement that widows in Ekiti should not suffer. We are under a government that put smiles on the faces of the people of the state.

“As Governor Biodun Oyebanji is working hard to make life easier for the people of the state, the First Lady is not relenting in complementing the efforts of her husband in bettering the lives of our people in the grassroots.

“The First Lady is assuring the widows that their welfare is of paramount importance to her and we want you to go back to your communities and spread the news.

“Those who are yet to be registered for the scheme are still free to do so.

“We want to know the needs of each of you so that we can know which areas to intervene in assisting you.

“Another team will visit you in your places of residence and business to further authenticate the information you have supplied. That is the purpose of this screening,” she said.
