During the last Eastertide, a popular son of the soil in Ibadan and Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (Operations Directorate), Adebayo Adelabu, through his NGO, Bayo Adelabu Foundation, BAF, brought unfettered smiles to the faces of over 400 widows in the Pacesetter state of Oyo.
Bayo Adelabu Foundation, in collaboration with SeedVest Micro Finance Bank Limited was able to make the scheme a reality. It was a jam-packed event as the turnout was awesome with lots of attendees and well wishers present to grace the occasion. Bayo Adelabu himself, the chief donor of the foundation was present with his youthful aura and commanding presence to spice up the event. Equally present were eminent personalities and politicians to liven up the unprecedented event. The recipients spread across all the 33 local government areas in Oyo State.
They also took time out to express their profound appreciation and gratitude to the chief donor, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu, who according to them, took ample time to make sure the program was carefully harmonized and devoid of discrepancies usually associated with such programs. The widows also appreciated the fact that it was not hijacked by politicians who would rather tilt the program to their own advantage.
