The Regent of Akure, Adetutu Adebiyi-Adesida, on Wednesday solicited support for the less privileged in the society.
Adebiyi-Adesida said this after presenting some food items to inmates of the Ago Ireti Leprosarium in Akure in honour of her late father, Adebiyi Adesida.
The items include four bags of rice, 55 tubers of yams, two kegs of palm oil and a goat.
Adebiyi-Adesida said the visit, which was her first, was in line with the tradition of her late father who had constantly identified with the less-privileged.
She assured the inmates of her support and urged other well meaning individuals to emulate this gesture.
In his remarks, the head of the Leprosarium, Mr Daniel Bamigbetan, thanked the regent for the visit and prayed for successes during her reign.
The regent was accompanied on the visit by her mother, Mojisola Adesida.
NAN reports that Adebiyi-Adesida became the regent of Akure after the death of her father on Dec. 1, 2013.
