The Chairman of Oshodi- Isolo Local Government Council, Hon. Idris Bolaji Muse Ariyoh has commissioned three structures built by his administration, with a call on residents to imbibe good maintenance culture.
The erection of the edifices, which include a newly constructed Marriage Registry, reconstructed Legislative Chamber, and new Customary Court is aimed at strengthening democratic institutions for the delivery of good governance at the grassroots.
Speaking at the ceremony, Ariyoh assured residents of more developmental projects that would spur the growth and development of Oshodi community.
According to him ” Oshodi is not just an ordinary local government area but the economic nerve centre of the nation and structures that befit the stature of the local government must be put in place to corroborate the infrastructural renewal ongoing across the local government”
” The local government authority unanimously named projects after the political veterans of Oshodi, whose support and track record in party democracy have never been in a doubt at the grassroots.
The citation of the three leaders received applause from the crowd which showed the general acceptability by the public that all the recipients deserve the honour bestowed on them through the naming of the structure after them as a sign of honour for their immense contributions.
The new legislative chamber, equipped with modern facilities, designed to enhance productive legislation was named after the apex leader of the mandate group, Alhaji Ebudol Ganiyu Badmus, while the Marraige Registry and Customary Courtwere named after Chief Johnson Olusola Olabintan and Alhaja Shakirat Ariyoh respectively.
The event attracted the convergence of Political stalwarts, CDC leaders, religious leaders, Royal fathers, artisans and many more, who gathered at the local Government Secretariat to witness the programme.
The political leaders were full of praises and appreciation to the council chairman for the honour bestowed on them while alive and urged the Chairman not to relent in his infrastructural development of the community.
In the same direction, all the seven councilors representing the political wards of Oshodi reiterated their commitment and support to the current administration with a vote of confidence pass on Hon.Idris Bolaji Muse Ariyoh for his giant strides towards delivering good governance at the grassroots.
The joy in the heart of the lawmakers was seen to have no bound as displayed by the leader of the house, Hon. Rasheed Obasa during his speech at the commissioning of the reconstructed Legislative chamber.
According to him, ” it is crystal clear that the growth and development of Oshodi are very germane to the administration of Hon. Idris Bolaji Muse Ariyoh and as the arm of government that is charged and saddled with the responsibility of lawmaking and performing of oversight functions, we would continue to provide the necessary support within the ambit of the law and necessary synergy needed to drive Oshodi to the greater height through the instrumentality of robust legislation and representation , Obasa said”.
