No doubt that the first Executive chairperson of Agboyi Ketu Lcda, Mrs. Yetunde Arobieke, Kosofe Representatives in the state cabinet is holding a strategic ministry; Local government and community affairs before her redeployment to the wealth creation and employment ministry as commissioner.
Under the former Ministry she oversees the affairs of;
- 57 Local council chairmen in Lagos State
- 57 community development Committee chairmen
- Over 3300 community development associations
- The traditional rulers across the state
- Community engagement among others.
These are some of the critical stakeholders under the purview of YARO that a Govenor who is not papertigger, who knows his onion will not just leave to anybody to supervise without showing any special interest.
Fore example under administration of embattled former Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode’s 500million was given to CDAS for intervention projects. Which several codenamed as brown envelopes to win the supports of the CDAs.
These developments reportedly contributed to the recent desperation by politicians to occupy cdc/CDAs executives positions to positioned themselves and Community for future largesse.
Regardless of the politics that necessitated the redeployment of Yaro. Yaro still remains one of the best man for the position. Haven serve for two consecutive terms council chairman and caretaker at the grassroots as truly prepared her for the task ahead. More importantly, a wife to the former Somolu LG chairman.
The new development no doubt will definitely curtailed her power and fast raising influence at the grassroots.
The Kosofe House of Representatives aspirant in 2018 under the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yetunde gathered is still very much interested in given it a trial again in 2023 since it’s likely the speculated third term agenda of the incubent lawmaker, Mr. Rotimi Agunsoye, might be a tall order since from Hon. Dotun Animashaun(Dot Dot) Arch. Dayo Bush( DBush) their third term agenda was aborted. Except ROT, will be the only first person to break the jinx in Kosofe.
