YABA LENS…….on the occasion of the support for the Aged Scheme programme.Apr 20th, 2012 | By Akinlade Dada | Category: EMPOWERMENT, Lead Story, NEWS, Uncategorized
The support for the aged programme initiated by Yaba LCDA was aimed at empowering and catering for the aged people within the LCDA as a way of appreciating the old ones that have contributed to the development of the community.
The Chairman, Hon Jide Jimoh described them as the senior citizens of this nation, the elderly ones. He said ‘’they have one way or the other sacrificed their vigour, agility and youthfulness towards the development of this great nation’’. Such people need not to be forgotten. They are our pot of ethics, a repository of wisdom and custodian of our culture.
100 aged people benefited from the scheme and each of them would receive N10,000.00 monthly allowance till the end the tenure. Below are the picture clips of the memorable occasion.
