The Executive Chairman of Igando-Ikotun LCDA, Hon. Morenike Adesina Williams, on Monday, received the newly-elected executives of the Community Development Committee (CDC) in her office.
Speaking with the executives, Williams said that her administration was committed to community development while enumerating some of the projects, programmes and assistance her government had rendered to some of the communities.
She appreciated the consistent support she has enjoyed from the CDC/CDA, while commending them for their passion.
“Community issues require people with passion, determination and unrelenting efforts, which you have proven to have,” she said.
The CDC Chairman, Elder Ademola Osibeluwo, who also spoke at the meeting, commended the performance of the council chairman, noting that the committee has enjoyed attention and support under her administration.
“Since the creation of Igando-Ikotun, CDC/CDA has never enjoyed this much attention and support like in this present administration,” he said.
He used the opportunity to highlight some of the challenges faced by the various communities, including grading of link roads and provision for community projects.
In response to these challenges, the council chairman verbally approved the provision for grading of roads.
She, however, emphasised the need to rehabilitate bad roads.
“Abaranje road will commence any moment, Isuti-Egan road work is ongoing.
“The state government recently visited Ijagemo road for approval; the construction of Igando primary schools and Ikotun revenue building is still ongoing,” she said.
She added that the ongoing projects would be carried out before embarking on other projects due to limited funds.
Also present at the meeting was the Vice Chairman of the council, Hon. Prince Adewunmi Dada and the Supervisor of Agriculture and Community Affairs, Hon. Abolarinwa.
