Assembly member, Rasheed Kashamu supports constituents with food, cash palliatives

In a gesture to support the community during Eid-el-Fitri, Abdulrasheed Kashamu, son of the late Senator Buruji Kashamu, distributed rice, noodles, and cash gifts to over 4,000 residents of Ijebu Igbo in Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun State on Wednesday.

Kashamu, who represents Ijebu North Constituency 1 at the Ogun State House of Assembly, emphasized the importance of reaching out to the community during these challenging economic times. “There is no better time than now for those who are privileged to reach out to the people and help cushion the effect of the prevailing economic hardship,” he stated.

During the event held at his late father’s residence in Ijebu Igbo, the 27-year-old lawmaker described the act of giving as part of his family’s tradition. “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 have carried on with, and we hope to do more,” Kashamu noted.

He continued, “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.”

Kashamu called on others who are in a position to offer assistance to follow suit, stating, “I use this opportunity to plead with others too who are quite privileged to lend a supportive hand. It is about all of us doing the little we can to make society better and ensure that no one is left behind.”

Kashamu pledged to continue his efforts in serving the community, similar to his late father, who represented Ogun East at the Senate from 2015 to 2019. He promised to facilitate more people-oriented projects for Ijebu Igbo and support the welfare of the people regularly.
