Speaking during the programme held at his late father's residence in Ijebu Igbo, the 27-year-old lawmaker said the kind gesture was nothing extraordinary, adding that it has always been the way of Kshamus to see to the welfare of others.

In a statement made available to Legit.ng, the Ogun State Minority Whip said:

"Whatever we have done here today is the way of Kashamus. We have always believed in stretching hands of love and support to our people and it is a legacy that we inherited and which we have carried on with and we hope to do more.
"This is a gesture that has been going on for years. In the Kashamu family, we try to reach out to as many people as possible, uplift them, feed them and help them in our own little way.
