Majority of Kosofe residents are using one of the most popular micro blogging site; Facebook. So, it’s imperative for the legislators to embraced this free of charge means to give feedback on their legislative business to the public.
Although, The councilor representing ward C, area of Kosofe Local government, Ibrahim Olawale posted on his Instagram page about the legislators plenary session with just four “likes” without any further details but how many residents are on his handle campared to his Facebook handle with 4743 followers, he never posted the updates there.
The 6th legislative chamber reaction or resolutions under the leadership of Hon. Olumide County, more importantly Oluwakemi Street and other padded programmes and projects by the Executive Chairman of Kosofe Local government, Mr. Afolabi Sofola are yet to be made public.
The position of the house is very crucial at this point to erase the notion of pencil, rubber stamp or weekly allowance councilors as they are often called in different quarters.
A senior aide to the council chairman claimed it might be an error by the Kosofe media team. Yet, the media has since maintained a graveyard silent over the bursted scam.
In consequence, Kosofe (and Agboyi Ketu Lcda) Legislative Arms should improve on their public engagement by toeing the footstep of Ikosi Isheri by creating a Facebook page for the people to know what they are doing on issues of local importance.
