The family noted that the gesture to the elderly in the community was in memory of their father, Late Pa Ezekiel Kayode-Ojo, who they described as a man with a large heart during his lifetime.
The family also donated a 6000 watts Firman giant size generator to the Ijebu-Jesa Maternity Centre for effective operations and health care services for members of the community.
