Christmas being a season of giving, but it is only those that have the heart of giving and charity that remember not just their supporters and well wishers, but also the poor in their surroundings. No wonder Honorable Jude Chukwuemeka Idimogu, the lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isola Constituency 02 in Lagos House of Assembly, gathered his constituents both party leaders and voters with plenty of Christmas gifts to tell them thank you. JOHN SILAS reports.
Honourable Jude Emeke Idimogu has been known to be a giver, a charity worker, who believes that he is in politics to serve. He remembered his people as they celebrate this year’s Christmas so that their joy could be complete.
It is not the first time Idimogu has remembered his people, with several empowerment programs spanning free transport for students and pupils in his constituency, vocational trainings, paying for the JAMB, WAEC and NECO Examination forms for candidates, Idimogu has indeed performed excellently for his people. He has also facilitated passage of bills that have impacted positively in the lives of his people.
Speaking to Journalists in his constituency Idimogu “My motive of joining politics is to serve, and the economy I know is not favourable and things are difficult. This Christmas no matter how small, people are known for eating ice during Christmas time, it is necessary because without them supporting you, you won’t be where you are. So it is key whatever you have, no matter how small, give back to them for the joy of Christmas and the joy of serving my people.
“I would have done better if I have more, but the little I have I believe I should share with these particular people. Party leaders have taken their own, party faithful have also taken, but there are people, who might not be opportune to be members of the party but they are voters and my constituents, and with God, being a charity worker, that is why today I use this opportunity to say happy Christmas to them”
Idimogu stated that the rice was being giving to members of his constituency without discrimination “In giving them the gift there is no discrimination, no Yoruba, no Igbo, no Hausa, it is for Christians, Moslems. Everybody that shows interest must have something.
On Christmas Message for the Igbos that are travelling to their various villages for the season, he said “I pray they travel and celebrate successfully, and come back safely. Naturally Igbo men and women like going home during Christmas, they should go and enjoy themselves, they should also realize that Christmas will always come and go, so they should take it easy.
