One of the late business mogul’s daughter and Special Adviser on Millennium Development Goals to the Ogun State Government, Hafsat Abiola-Costello while addressing the crowd at the anniversary recalled that her father’s determination was to use political position to fight poverty in the society and empower the less privileged.
