She pledged to provide free eye tests/treatment, donate eye glasses, three wheel chairs and erect bill board advocacy to end polio as part of activities to commemorate this year’s World Sight Day.
She added that five widows would benefit N100,000 each as business capital start-up, while three entrepreneurs would receive a sewing machine each.
“Donation of exercise books and school bags and shoes to pupils in a primary school would be made,” she added.

“There are lots of under-privileged and needy persons in our communities and the world at large, whose only hope will come from us and our friends.
“I urge us to decide here and now to make their lives better in any way that we can,” Olaedo stressed.
