CITIZENS COMPASS–The Chairman of Ikorodu Local Government(LG), Mr Wasiu Ayodeji Adesina on Friday, April 19, 2024, inaugurated multi-million naira projects in all the wards in Ikorodu as his administration winds down.

The Citizens Compass  reports that the chairman inaugurated the completion of the borehole at Agura Ward G, Gberigbe, Eleshin, Sholafun Ward F, Itunliwe Wards, Anibaba, and Lowa Ward B respectively.
The chairman also inspected the ongoing rehabilitation of Forcy Rabiu Road at Lowa which was at 85 percent completion.

Speaking during the inauguration of one of the projects at wWardB at Lowa, Adesina said the gesture was executed to curb water scarcity in the communities as water remains an important part of human life, “good water brings good health”.

According to him, it was important to execute the project, due to water scarcity in the community and that it was a form of response to the people’s yearning and also to bring relief to the residents.

“As you know, our programmes are focused on the development of grassroots and provision of basic amenities to our communities.

“The impact of water Is essential to human beings, this is why we started embarking on the construction of boreholes across all wards to provide portable water,” he said.

The council boss charged CDAsDA’s of all the communities to take ownership, maintained the projects so could serve them a for long, and assured them that his administration would provide whatever it lacked to make them more efficient.

The residents commended the efforts of the council chairman for his giant stride on developmental projects across the board as well as asked for more attention in some areas.

Earlier, Mr Olajide Kuti, Chairman Lowa CDA, appreciated the chairman for initiating the borehole in their community to solve the challenges of tracking long distances as well as commended their councillor Mrs. Mutiat Fatuga for facilitating the project.

He appealed to the chairman to bring more government attention to the Lowa community as it is embattled with security challenges, transformer, accessible link road, and street light.
“We want to thank our councilor who facilitated this project and the chairman for his approval as the first of its kind from the government for more than a decade.

“We seek for more intervention in areas of security, road, and electricity from the local government as a share of our dividend of democracy,” he said.

The chairman in his response,  reaffirmed his commitment towards the development of grassroots, fulfillment of his electoral promises, and assures residents of more dividends of democracy across the communities.

He commended the leadership of the community and advised the CDA to write a letter to the council highlighting their need for urgent attention and prompt response to address the challenges.
Adesina urged residents to also ensure they paid their taxes and levies to the government to enjoy more developmental projects in their wards adding that his administration would flag off the construction of Solamade Road which is also in the same ward.

“I appeal to residents of Ikorodu to ensure prompt and consistent payment of their taxes and levies to enjoy more developmental projects in their area.

“We have more than 5000 houses built in this community, if each house consistently pays N500 as levies, this is more than our monthly subvention.
“We will embark on more projects, but without that, that is why we ensure that all the wards enjoy one project or the other?

“We are happy with the feedback we get on our developmental projects in Ikorodu and promise to do more before this administration winds down.

“The CDA should nominate a trusted member of the community so that I can integrate him with the LG Joint Task Force to tackle the issue of insecurity,” he said.
