ENACT Deepening Democractic Principles


Came across a publication that is laced with facts, but had some twisted conclusions or opinions.
ENACT principal Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun is a philanthropic and community development oriented individual that provides financial support to many organizations doing great things in our communities. One of his flagship support programs is the renowned Igbomina Mobile Clinic bringing healthcare relief to the doorsteps of many of our people in Igbomina land (Irepodun, Isin, Ifelodun) and supported Offa Descendants Union North America medical mission to Offa and its environs.


Equally, ENACT initiated Mobile Clinic has traversed the length and breath of the remaining four local governments Oyun, Offa, Ekiti, and Oke Ero in order to bring healthcare relief to our people outside of the normal coverage of Igbomina Mobile Clinic.
A recently launched program is the ENACT INNOVATION HUB that has positively impacted the lives of many people in Kwara South by empowering them with skills acquisition that can be translated into economic security immediately. Many positive stories are abound to testify to the impact of the programs. There are equally interventions in water borehole repairs and sinking of new ones and interventions in the areas of Education in form of school repairs and refurbishment, school kits, and school fees support.

For any democracy to thrive, CSOs Civil Society Organizations and NGOs Non-governmental Organizations have critical roles to play. The success of any democracy is predicated on the principles of transparency and accountability. In this light, ENACT looks for organizations that are promoting the ideals of democracy and lend financial support where necessary as they are critical to the development and progress of our democracy and society.

According to the publication “The Deputy Coordinator of ENetSuD, Mr Lanre Oso revealed this on Thursday while featuring on a live radio program titled ‘Ipinle mi/My State’ on OFM Ilorin.

According to him, Engr Nurudeen Adeyemi ENACT, a close ally of Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq is sponsoring one of ENetSuD radio programmes in order to enlighten the citizens, monitor the spending of government under the leadership of His Excellency, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and ensure transparency under his led administration.”

That the government of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq is fully committed to transparency and accountability to the good people of Kwara State is not a secret as the government established partnership with many CSOs such as Elite Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD).
Therefore, ENACT financial support to a group like ENETSUD is in furtherance and in support of the good governance vision of the government of Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

ENETSUD is involved in many activities that have helped in bringing government closer to the people. On many occassions, ENETSUD assessment teams have uncovered numerous communities needing water or other amenities that the government and other well meaning members of the society have been able to step up and close the gap fairly quickly.
Part of ENETSUD positive impact on the government is the standardization and improvement in procurement processes of the state that has allowed the state to be cost effective and deliver value for money to the good people of the state.
It is not a secret that many feel that despite the great work being done by ENETSUD, some of their public reporting can come across as fodder for the opposition. That any relationship may be strained from time to time is not news. It is as a result that ENACT has tried to play a role as a mediator and advisor from time to time in order to ensure that we are deepening the principles of democracy while trying to ensure fair and balanced reporting that is focused on problems or gaps identification while government can look for appropriate method or means of closing the gap. An example is the contract standardization and procurement process improvement potentially saving the government and the people of Kwara billions of naira.

As a person aspiring to represent the good people of Kwara South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun is fully committed and fully bought into the vision and leadership of Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq especially in the areas of deepening democractic principles. One of the areas that many of the CSOs and NGOs can be of impact in helping Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun serve the good people of Kwara as a Senator God willing is the ready access to their many Community Needs Based Assessments that many of our elected representatives are not currently taking advantage of today. Leading to some elected representatives facilitating water to communities looking for power or facilitating power to communities looking for water.

Therefore, Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun sees partnership with credible CSOs and NGOs as critical development tool in service of the people.

EndSARS: Govt/citizens should accord priority to peace, progress now, ENACT advises


• Urges Kwara govt/labour for understanding on minimum wage

Engineer Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun (ENACT) on Tuesday called on the government at all levels to proactively accommodate the demands of the youths under the aegis of #EndSARS and begin to handle the demonstrations with more tact which he said would help douse tension and pull the nation out of anarchy.

Adeyemi said while the authorities showed patience earlier over the nationwide protests against police brutality, as has been seen in some of the steps taken on the #5 of 5 requests in some states, the recent spate of riots and attacks cannot afford to linger.

In his words: “I salute the unwavering spirit of our youths on their demand for reform in the police force and upscale in quality of governance. It is only right that government accede to their requests in the interest of peace and progress of the country.

“Peaceful protest is a strong ingredient of a well-cooked democracy anywhere in the world. Nigeria cannot be an exception.

“However, there is a need to preserve the protests as being peaceful. The riotous turn of events in some parts of the country especially Lagos is worrisome. On no account should bodies of young ones be piling on our roads, making mournful stories of loss and grief.

“I am clearly against the #Lekkishooting and strongly sympathize with the victims. In the same vein, attacks on shops and businesses, public properties, and personalities must stop. Those are not the worthy cause of actions. It must stop now. It is apt that everyone gives a big room for peace to reign in the interest of national security and development. In the meantime, honest steps must be taken to fish out perpetrators of these heinous acts and care should be given to the victims as necessary.”

The Engineer, meanwhile, encouraged the Federal government and NASS representatives to look at the issues raised and begin to take the necessary steps to make amends particularly in the areas of Criminal Justice Reform, Human Rights, Insecurity, and Youth Unemployment.

In the statement, he also commended Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for taking proactive steps in identifying with the yearnings of the youths and the masses on police brutality and the minimum wage in Kwara.

“The swift set up of the judicial panel to look into the various alleged cases of police brutality by the Governor days after he marched with the protesters in Ilorin is commendable. Empathy and responsiveness are key leadership qualities. They must come in a high dose at this particular time. It is equally good he could reach compromise with labour leaders to call off the strike adversely affecting our people.

“I am glad that the union leaders see that the infrastructural development of the people needs to go side by side with salary adjustments of the civil servants. It is valid. Both should explore negotiations to the fullest in the interest of all,” he said.

Engineer Adeyemi also called for labour’s understanding and implored them to prioritize the overall development of the state in their ongoing negotiations with the government over minimum wage.

He lauded Kwara youths for their contributions to governance and social development, urging them to maintain calm and orderliness in their activities across the state.
