Rep. Wale Raji, Epe Federal Constituency

Rep. Wale Raji, the representative of Epe Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, launched two significant projects on Saturday, November 28, 2020. The first project, the Grassroots Traders Support, aimed to provide a cash grant of N25,000 to 1,100 traders across Epe Federal Constituency, totaling an impressive N27,500,000.

The second initiative, the “Owo Arugbo” Elders Welfare Scheme, targeted individuals aged 70 and above, offering them a monthly stipend of N10,000 to address their basic needs. Notably, the uniqueness of this program lies not only in the financial support but also in the hands-on approach of physically delivering stipends to each beneficiary monthly by officials from Rep. Wale Raji’s office. This ensures direct interaction, welfare checks, and feedback to the legislator.

Despite facing challenges such as the CBN’s naira redesign policy and the electioneering period, which many anticipated would signal the end of the projects, Rep. Wale Raji’s initiatives have thrived for three years. The program has not only endured but has grown stronger, with the current number of beneficiaries standing at an impressive 145, up from the initial 105 in 2020.

This sustained effort amid political uncertainty sets a laudable example for implementing welfare initiatives at the grassroots level. Rep. Wale Raji continues to distinguish himself through unwavering service to his constituents, both in the legislative chambers and within the Epe community.
