In his remarks, Senator Abiru, fondly called the #DoingGood Senator, said the food packs programme was a direct intervention to the people at the grassroot who are feeling the heat of the economic pangs occasioned by the removal of petroleum subsidy.

According to him, the Food Packs will support the most vulnerable households in this challenging period.

The Senator also assured that he will not relent in championing legislations, programmes and interventions that will have lasting impacts on the larger number of the constituents of Lagos East.

He said SAIL Innovation Lab, the first of its kind Innovation Lab  in Lagos East, founded by him and his wife, Feyisola was set up to offer sustainable and globally competitive jobs and opportunities to young people of the district.
