Ironically when several Nigerians complained bitterly of non performance oby second term council chairmen, governors and presidents when reelected. However, Ikosi Isheri Lcda chairman, Engr. Abdulfatai Oyesanya, second term in office was deem better than good compared to the first term where he survived several impeachments in hand of the lawmakers.
The assertion were from individuals and Oyesco sworn enemies within APC testimony as gathered by Kosofe Post. But, the SLG, Hon. Dolapo Bashr recently wowed several stakeholders when he posted the list of completed and ongoing road construction embarked upon by the council chairman since resumption for second term.
Recent visit to the council area few of the projects executed were confirmed. full details later. If not for the SLG who rose to the occasion many residents home and away wouldn’t have known that Ase opo toyi( many completed or ongoing projects) abound the council area. Even our news track in the mainstream media the council engaged the most don’t give any alerts on the council activities until SLG rescued a resident, who abreast of few of the projects undertaken by council boss when engaged by concerned stakeholders on KP.
Also, Gideon Oyeyinka as monitored this morning would not have said on Ikosi Isheri handle birthday anniversaries that” Dear Hon. Chairman, can you please tell us why all the major roads in our areas including Olayemi Odutayo Street and Alhaji Yekini Aromolate Street have been terribly left for deterioration. Please get to work and do the needful. All the roads need a quick fix. These can be achieve through a cost effective vendor financing strategy. Moreover, am yet to see any innovation or major project that I can point at since you assume office. You need to do more, create and embark on projects that will impact positively in the areas of Education, Health, Empowerment etc within the community. Thank you.” Gideon Statement captured by Kosofe post.
With this frequently asked questions from Gideon, and several others few weeks after SLG posted to the road projects executed by the local council revealed big communication gap exist between the council and the residents and call for an improved engagement of the community whether through the media or town hall meetings etc.
If the claims of the project executed by the chairman totally confirmed to be true, we can independently say one or two things was done in the area of Education, Health, Empowerment as monitored. one of it was reported by Kosofe Post. However, other unknown policy, programmes and projects as the SLG helped in the area of road construction might also be in public domain useful for record purpose.
The public relations officers to the chairman and the information manager team of the council must always put the developmental projects completed in the public domain without been asked and to prevent mischievous attacks from the residents.
Also, The Executive and his kitchen cabinet must see the public relations officers or information manager as management function that must be duly carry along in the process of decision making. Most importantly give them the needed support and logistics to discharge their duties as and when due. By so doing , it will reduce community media practitioners in kosofe, Buhari Youth Organisation, Ikosi Isheri residents home and abroad, opposition parties and the likes of Gideon Oyeyinka frequently asked questions on governance.
