finalists were picked and 3 winners emerged in dancing, singing and
choreography and won talent sums ranging from half a million naira to a hundred
thousand naira for career development.

To the glory of God the presentation has 80% of pictures and it connected with people that are educated and the ones that are not educated and my popularity soared so high with that singular innovation”

beneficiary of the LOL health program said of LOL “Lukman Lawal is a good son
of the soil who is doing quite well for his people; he has always been a helper
of the downtrodden, all this initiative he came up with were done for the
ordinary people on the street. We are not going to be the one to elect him but
if destiny chooses him to go represent his people at the state assembly I will
be happy because he is a very valuable person, very humane person. He is a kind
son and I don’t have much to say than to tell you journalists that among the
children that grew in this society, Lukman
is one of the most gifted in behavior, innovation and good conduct.”

Udstaz Mudashiru Abdul-Amin another beneficiary of the program
who spoke to us said “I was just passing by when I saw the crowd and I asked
what is going on and I was told, I never had that kind of opportunity before
and because health facilities and opportunities are quite expensive in Surulere,
I quickly made use of the opportunity and that was how I was lucky to be a
beneficiary. I have been tested and I have been advised on how to live a
healthy life I thank the organizers for such grace, I thank them for
considering our health in Surulere community”
Another LOL Medical Official treating a team of patients on his table
Awobokun Dipo Owolabi, a beneficiary of the health
awareness program who equally came with his wife Mrs. Tayo Owolabi thanked LOL for his gesture which he said no
aspirant has ever achieved in Surulere before “I never believe this kind of
thing could happen in Surulere, Honorable
Lukman
is the first man to come out with this kind of idea and to the glory
of God we saw a large turn out of residents today. A lot of people who are ill,
in fact the dentist on the team extracted over 5 tooth from people with tooth
pain and gave treatment for diabetes and high blood pressure and other
illnesses, it was done free of charge with no kobo taken from anybody, I and my
family benefitted. In fact even members of other parties, indigene and non
indigene benefitted. I believe if this man, Lukmon Oyewole Lawal is given a bigger opportunity; he will do more
than this. I think he has a big agenda and I wish the party delegates and the
electorate wont miss the opportunity of assigning him to represent us at the
assembly in 2015”.

LOL with APC Party Executives in Surulere LGA
While
reacting to the success of the event, Lukmon
Oyewole Lawal
told this blog how he felt about the success of the event “To
the glory of God, I want to specially thank the almighty for the journey so
far, it was very eventful and for the first time with every sense of modesty
and responsibility, we were able to do things that are first of its kind in
Surulere. One is Surulere got talents which we did on the 19th of
October with the presence of elder statesman Alhaji Lateef Jakande
in our midst at the Teslim Balogun
Stadium,
we also gave Alhaji Jakande
a lifetime awards for his contributions to youth development. We have empowered
the new stars and we are going to make sure that they turn out to be future
stars and not one off stars. In doing so we were able to sensitize them and re-orientate
the youth at large; today the system has failed our generation and we must transform
the status quo, we must not add to the decadence in the system. On the other
side, for the first time, I did a presentation on governance and society
situational audit; it is the first of its kind. I have equally done a
presentation on community wealth creation that would create jobs within the
community, that would tap into the GDP of the Surulere community and that can
give direct job to one hundred youths and also create over four hundred
indirect jobs. To the glory of God the presentation has 80% of pictures and it
connected with people that are educated and the ones that are not educated and
my popularity soared so high with that singular innovation”
Young Surulere residents were not excempted from the LOL Health Scheme
Lukmon Oyewole Lawal welcomes one of his strongest opponents Fuad Kayode Laguda to the event
“Today
(Thursday November 27th) we have done free medicals, we have done dental
screening and extractions, we have done glaucoma eyes screening and general
eyes screening; we have done cardiovascular screening because we know the high
rate of diabetes and hypertension that is everywhere now and a lot of
discoveries were made today by our health experts. We did dietetic and
nutritional talk where we told people what to do to have longer life expectancies
because some things we take in are not good for our system and the turn out was
very impressive, we screened over two hundred people, not just people but
indigene because a lot of people don’t have access to purchase health care
because they cannot afford it. So, today we have done something to cushion the
effect of low health awareness, we also gave them mosquitoes nets because
malaria has also been a killer that even kills faster than AIDS, we also did
hepatitis B screening, it is also a silent killer that people are not aware of,
we equally used the opportunity to do a lot of sensitization as well, talking
to our people on health matters and this is not going to end here. I am hoping
that I will be given a bigger opportunity to do more on a larger scale because
governance is a machine to drive social-economic welfare, I believe in being in
that corridor, it will enable us to draw a lot of support from the corporate
world, international organizations and multi-national organization for the
development of the common people in Surulere”
Lukmon Oyewole Lawal…..Arriving for the event

On how he
intend to continue doing all he is doing now when he is elected, LOL reassured
his constituency people “By the grace of God, as Lukman Oyewole Lawal I will always strive to say  with every sense of responsibility that my
drive is beyond the material, I believe that I owe my generation. I lost my
father 31 years ago; on this journey I had the course of mentioning his name
(late Alhaji Ibrahim Lawal)  at some
occasion and I was marveled at the kind of positive encomiums that was poured
on the person of my late father, he was an Ansar-U-Deen missioner and that has
demonstrated to me that no matter how many houses, how many cars, how much of
cash, that a good name is the greatest of all legacies and according to the
late African statesman, Nelson Mandella,
it always seems so impossible until it is done, and that poverty is manmade and
it is only through the action of man that it can be stopped. My mission is to
redefine governance; to improve education, improve health care and feed well.
By the special grace of God we are looking up to the primaries and we are
hoping that people would embrace ideas beyond cash and food because no matter
how much you are given, you will spend it in no time, a good idea is the only
legacy that will last a life time”
