In demonstration of his commitment towards wealth creation and distribution agenda in Kogi State, the Action Alliance (AA) candidate in the November 11 governorship election in the State, Otunba Olayinka Braimoh has donated a tailoring co-working space for the students of Technical College, Kabba.He made provision for an office space and 3 modern sewing machines.In addition, paid school fees for some of the students. During his visit to the school, he noted that many of the students were finding it difficult to pay their school fees but good enough, some of them have acquired different skills but lacking the necessary working tools and office space to practice what they have learned.
Further discussions revealed that reasonable numbers of them learned tailoring. Consequently, he decided to get a fashion designing co-working space with 3 sewing machines for them. This, he said, will assist those among them who learned tailoring to be able to co-work in the office for their respective customers.He said they can also jointly handle sewing contracts from within and outside the school.
This is the first of it’s kind in the environment. In addition to this gesture, Otunba Olayinka Braimoh released funds for the payment of school fees of some of the students whose parents were struggling financially. This, he said, will be a big relief to both the students, parents and school management respectively.
High Chief Olorunfemi Adebayo Frank, the Coordinator of Happy People in Kogi West, who, on behalf of Olayinka Braimoh, handed over the sewing machines, office keys and school fees receipts to the students, admonished them to strictly make use of the office and sewing machines for the singular purpose for which they provided.He said that Olayinka Braimoh will extend the same to others when he becomes the Governor of the State.
NAOS Coordinator for Olayinka Braimoh governorship movement in the school, Steven Olafemi Paul, on behalf of the students, thanked Otunba Olayinka Braimoh, stating that the provision of coworking space, sewing machines and payment of school fees will go a long way in assisting not only the students but their parents and the school environment at large.He said “While some of the students using the office will no longer put their parents under school fee’s stress and may even subsequently send money to them from the profit made in sewing, those living in the environment will also have the advantage of getting their clothes sewed by the students.”He prayed for the success of Olayinka Braimoh at the poll as this will guarantee more opportunities for students across the state.
