According to Insidemainland , on Christmas day 2016 , Honorable Dipo Olorunrinu  Lagos State House of Assembly member representing Amuwo Odofin Constituency I, took to the streets to distribute ‘Christmas packages’ to members of his constituency – an act which he described as ‘a visit from father Christmas.’

 

Though a gesture of goodwill  but this time was different , is however not new to residents of Amuwo Odofin; Hon. Dipo is quite popular among his constituents for distributing food items and money on the streets.

According to Source,

The residents were miffed at the manner ‘Father Christmas’ went about throwing the food at them. While it is believed that Hon. Dipo’s gesture was with good intent, the means by which he carried it out attracted serious criticism.

He published a video and some pictures on Facebook this morning showing Amuwo Odofin residents, young and old, scrambling around his vehicle trying to catch whatever they could as he threw food items into the air.

It wasn’t long after the video was published , comments of course as expected came in but this time around was negative condemning the way he distributed the items and suggesting better ways it could have been done.

Some said

“Good intentions but I don’t subscribe to the ‘manner ‘of distribution. It’s the same thing the old men do that we frown out. You could have asked them to assemble at a venue and do the distribution,” Laide Eloho.

 

“What is Good About Throwing Food and Gifts to People on the Road like they are Chickens eager to get fed with feed. You have good intentions …Yes, i will not ignore that fact but this Approach is Very Very Wrong.Take Note and do better next time.Because when you get to heaven,God will ask how you did it and not what you did.”

 

Among the items that was said to have been distributed was to have distributed were Rice, Eggs, Bottles of Kerosene, Noodles, and Groundnut oil but  in the video, Hon. Dipo was seen throwing packs of noodles at residents who chased after him in a moving truck.

We all know the Honourable have good intentions but just a wrong manner of approach , What do you think ? was the manner of approach wrong ? should he have done it better ? do you have suggestions towards this ?
