Commissioner For Local Government and Community affairs, Hon. (Otunba)Yetunde Arobieke
I am fulfilled and happy on behalf of the parents and the children. When we had our own administration, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo withheld our allocation and when it was actually released there were too many contending projects. The expectation of the people were so high and we needed to fix infrastructures like do roads and things like that.
But you see if you have done that its for the next administration to start looking for other areas where government yet to be involved.So, i am not surprised about what Mayor Dele has eventually achieved because he has what its takes.
He is highly cerebral, young man i was expecting him to put his strength on the side of time because when he leaves, when i left those things i did were speaking for me when i left. So when he leaves too what he finds himself to do will definitely speak. So, we give God all the Glory.
