With a grant of N5 million, a legislator helps a constituent


Bashiru Dawodu, the lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo Federal Constituency 1, has given a N5 million grant to 250 people in his constituency to help them with their businesses.

The beneficiaries, who each received N20,000, included women, artisans, and unemployed youths. The event took place at Owosheni Primary School in Oshodi over the weekend.

The event, according to Dawodu, was organized to relieve constituents and provide them with democratic dividends.

Olusola Oluwole-Adeolupo, the Coordinator of the Industrial Development Centre (IDC) of the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), urged the recipients to take advantage of the grant.

EKOEXCEL, a Lagos State e-technology-based basic education development initiative, has participated in Hour of Code lessons in primary schools for students in grades 1 to 6.

The Hour of Code is a global computer science initiative led by code.org that aims to introduce students to computer programming concepts in a fun and creative way.

“The Hour of Code is designed to demystify code and show that computer science is not rocket science,” Hadi Partovi, the Founder and CEO of Code.org, said.
