Sanwo-Olu donates bus to Bethesda Home of the Blind

Lagos State Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has donated a bus to the Bethesda Home of the Blind in Mushin area of the state.

He made the donation during a thanksgiving visit to the school.

Mr Sanwo-Olu also restated his commitment to fulfilling his electoral promises of delivering good and inclusive governance to the people of the state.

Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat, during the electioneering campaign had promised to provide a bus to the school which has become a premier institution for the blind in Lagos.

“I promised to visit your school to celebrate our victory if we won the election. And to the glory of God, we won and so we are here to celebrate with you. Also you requested for a bus to ease mobility of your students. The bus is also here.’’ Sanwo-Olu said.

He added that his personal interest in the school would be more reflected when he formally assumes office.

Director of the School, Chioma Ohakwe, lamented the poor treatment of the blind in Nigeria, maintaining that a situation where the blind are left to fend for themselves should be condemned.

She praised Sanwo-Olu and his deputy for being men of honour and integrity who came to fulfil a promise less than a week after winning their election.

“We want to thank our governor-elect for keeping his promise to visit us and rejoice with us immediately after the announcement of the election results and also to deliver a bus to us. Both promises you have kept. These are the qualities of a fine gentleman,” she said.

Also present were Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, Oluremi Hamzat among others.
