Question Put And Agreed To
MATTER OF URGENT PUBLIC IMPORTANCE TO COME TO THE AID OF MR. SAMUEL ENIMOLA.
The Rt. Hon. Speaker, Distinguished Colleagues, Mr. Samuel Enimola was the former reporter of Graphics Newspaper covering the Kogi State House of Assembly and presently the media officer of the Kogi State House of Assembly Service Commission. He is also from my constituency, Aiyetoro-Gbede to be precise.
Unfortunately, Mr. Samuel Enimola is down with Sinonasal Cancer that has kept him bed ridden for many months now at the University College Hospital, Ibadan.
He needs an urgent surgical operation to stay alive. He needs the sum of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (500,000) for the operation.
I want to plead with this honourable House to as a matter of urgent public importance to:
Help come to the aid of Mr. Samuel Enimola by raising fund for him so as to be able to carry out the said operation.
Direct the Kogi State House of Assembly Commission to as a matter of urgency send a delegation to the University College Hospital to visit Mr Samuel Enimola on his sick bed.
Let me conclude with the words of Janeen Latini that says: “Leaders needs to be facilitators and help others get what they need”. I plead with us all to please help facilitate the funding for the surgical operation of one of our own Mr. Samuel Enimola.
I So Move.
