Speaking, the Paramount Ruler of Yewa land, His Royal Majesty, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, who was the donor, said the Foundation aimed at complementing government's efforts, emphasising that government should not be left to do it alone.

"I and my friends in Diaspora, who are members of the Foundation will always rally round the Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, by providing more infrastructure because we cannot eat money but use the money wisely for the development of the State", he said.
