The Oshodi-Isolo local government legislative arm has commended the giant strides of the council chairman, Otunba Kehinde Almoroof Oloyede, on roads rehabilitation and drilling of pipe-borne water across all wards of the council.
The legislators made this commendation when they paid an oversight function to the projects sites on Tuesday.
Speaking to newsmen, the chairman, House Committee on Works, Hon Azeez Jaiyeola said the type of works done on the rehabilitation of the road is unprecedented of any government within a short space of time of assumption of office to have carried out such giant road construction projects across the local government area.
The team had in attendance the Deputy leader of the house, Hon. Wasiu Mustapha, member representing Shogunle ward, Hon. Ige Adega, member representing Ewu ward, Hon. Abayomi Kazeem, member representing Mafoluku ward and Hon. Wasiu Faluade, member representing Afariogun ward.
At the site, the house delegate engaged the contractors handling each of the streets and urged them to execute a quality job as well as endeavour to meet up with the expected time of completion.
Hon. Jayeola said; “we are here today to carry out our oversight function. We have visited each of the sites and engaged the contractors. On behalf of the delegation, we want to appreciate Otunba Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede, the executive chairman of Oshodi-Isolo local government for embarking on such massive projects within his short stay in office”.
The lawmaker appealed to members of the society to take ownership of the projects and maintain them when completed.
“The people of Oshodi should take possession of the roads and use it judiciously so that it can last and serve the people,” he said.
