Some residents of Alimosho have blasted the president of Alimosho Youth Development Association of Nigeria (AYDAN), Comrade Olawale Lateef Ogungbade, on his open letter to the Chairman of Egbe Idimu local council development area on Sunday, November 3.
These attacks came in response to Ogungbade’s post on Facebook commending the Council Chairman, Hon. Kunle Sanyaolu Olowoopejo, for his “kind gesture” in fixing the roads in the area.
Quoting world-renowned Indian political ethicist, Mahatma Gandhi, Ogungbade wrote: “The prospect of finding and appreciating a charitable deed is gradually becoming alienated in our land, yet, it is the most magnificent exploits every man owes his fellow man.”
Praising Olowoopejo for fixing a bad portion of the LASU/Isheri Road in front of the council secretariat, the AYDAN President added: “It is simply because of this that I had to put this little piece together to appreciate your kind gesture.
“One will recall that for some month now, the frontage of the council (Isheri Roundabout) has remained impassable for motorists and pedestrians. Those who are familiar with that route would have known the agony that motorists have gone through. I can not count the number of times that palliative measures have been done on that same spot since you assumed the mantle of leadership of the LCDA ( Egbe Idimu)…”
But in a series of reactions, the residents stated that there was no kind gesture in the rehabilitation of roads by a person holding public office, as it was their responsibility.
