Sole Administrator, Ejigbo LCDA leads to clean up area

The residents of Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) have cause to smile because the Sole Administrator, Engr. Ibrahim Adigun, has delighted them by making the area more habitable through clean-up of drainages, demolition of shanties, Spelling Bee competition for schools and empowerment of widows in the area among other things. Story by JOY ANIGBOGU.
In a chat with our report­er Engr. Adigun said ”We want to make sure that the drainages have free flow of water and no block­ages, to this end we have formed a task force involv­ing the staff of the LCDA and the community who will ensure that the drain­ages are cleared regularly. We have a monitoring team that makes sure that people do not dump refuse in the drainages. This ex­ercise will be a continuous one. It will be done in and out of rainy season”
Hon Adigun in answer­ing questions from jour­nalists on the challenges the LCDA has in various areas said, “The major chal­lenge we have in Ejigbo is bad roads. The first thing I did on assumption of office was to fix the graders, which we are using to fix some of the roads and make them motorable. We had stake­holders meeting about a month ago, where we dis­cussed the areas that should be given priority consider­ing the fund available. We are lucky to have the Gov­ernor ready to assist us with two new roads”
In the area of security he said, “Ejigbo is calm for now. We know that secu­rity should be everybody’s business. We had some is­sues some time ago when hoodlums organized and were disturbing residents in a particular area. I met with the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and also spoke with Kabiyesi. The situation was brought under control and now we have peace in the area”
In another development, the Spelling Bee competi­tion took place in Ejigbo town hall and it involved eleven primary schools and four secondary schools. In the primary school category, Ayo Adegboyega Primary School Ejigbo took the first position. The secondary school category had, Okeafa Secondary School going home with the first prize. Gift items were also given to the participating students.
The Head of Department of Education, Ejigbo LCDA, Mr. Nosiru Abayomi said, “The State and Ejigbo LCDA is very passionate about up­lifting the standard of edu­cation. We want to give the best to our students and we want to also assist parents, that is why we are arranging to buy JAMB forms for stu­dents in secondary schools in the LCDA”
It was also a day some widows in Ejigbo will not forget in a hurry because Hon Adigun made their day when he selected thirteen widows for spe­cial empowerment. They received hair products, medical items and sanitary products. The Sole Admin­istrator said that the em­powerment would not be a one off thing; it would be done on a regular basis. He promised to continue with the good gesture to allevi­ate their suffering.
The leader of the widows, Mrs. Victoria Akintade thanked the sole admin­istrator and said that the widows will be there for the LCDA to give their support anytime there is need.-The Authority
