"This is going to be continuous. This is just the beginning. It is going to cut across everyone across the local government.

In his own submission, the Commissioner for local government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Afolabi Afuape noted that, the quarterly empowerment was for members across the 15 wards in the local government, stressing that other members would benefit from the gesture in the next empowerment programme.
