Omowaiye described Fatai Buhari as a man that sincerely loves his people and who despite having won the election went ahead to facilitate an round of empowerment programs for them.
He explained that he has attended Buhari’s empowerment massive over time and he always end up asking himself, “Why is Senator Buhari this good to his people ?I can attest to the fact that over 500 cars have been given out under Senator Buhari’s empowerment scheme , No wonder he is the first Senator in the history of Oyo State to have won election into the Senate three consecutive times.
