The Founder of Forwarder’s Group Benjamin Oluwole Eweoya recently commissioned a water project at St. Paul Anglican Primary school, Mafoluku, Oshodi in Lagos as part of its effort to help the needy and develop the community.
Eweoya, who is an old pupil of the school said that the water project is a way of giving back to the community. “Helping the needy and community development is the core of my desire to serve Oshodi community and my country Nigeria by extension.”
Eweoya, who recently donated safety equipment to students of Ewutuntun Community Grammar school Oshodi, said that the water project was done to meet the needs of the school. The headmistress of St. Paul Anglican Primary School, Mrs. Lydia Olufunmilola Obadara noted that the school has been having a major challenge with water as students buy potable water and workers fetch water from a distance in cleaning up the school’s toilets and environment.
She said, “His selfless service in providing water tank and scarfolding to the school will go a long way in meeting the various needs that water is needed for in our school. He has provided a timely need for us and God will continue to empower him for more selfless service.”
Eweoya added that the project is done to promote the spirit of competitive development, “It gladdens my heart when I put a sign post at Afolabi Primary School, Oshodi and two weeks later our Federal House of Representative member saw the need to do the same for the neighbouring primary school. In less than 10 years, Oshodi Local government will be better than any other local government in Nigeria.”
He also added that the group will continue in the spirit of competitive development, and sought for support in giving the cause a life to yield result for the benefit of all in Oshodi. Eweoya said “We have a duty as a people to preserve and guard jealously all projects made by government and individuals as they are for the benefits of the community. The longevity of the lifespan of these projects will inspire not only the donor but gear others who are willing to give to the community.”
Eweoya while speaking with our correspondent added that the group would come up with a training program to help enlighten and empower the youths in the local government.
