As part of projects implemented to mark her 100 days in office, the Chairman, Lagos Mainland Local Government, Hon. Omolola Rashidat Essien and her management team, headed by, Mr. Olusegun Ajagunna, yesterday November 13, 2017, commissioned Coates Street in Oyingbo, Lagos Mainland.
Commenting on the development, council boss, Mrs Essien said that the reason behind the road project in community was because “Oyingbo is an important community in Lagos state, for that reason the road has to be motor-able and good for users to ply. Having a good road network is critical to effective commercial activities within Oyingbo.”
“Our choice to fix the nearly collapsed Coates Street which has just been commissioned was very strategic as it serves as a link to two major roads – the Borno Way and Herbert Macaulay Way. I want to thank you all for trusting our party with your votes. As an arm of government closest to the electorate, I want to reassure you of providing good governance within the limit of our available resources and in line with the dictates of our party, the APC as well as the directive of the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode,” she added.
Meanwhile, the council head and her team also presented exercise books and other aid items to school students in the LG area.
Speaking on this, Mrs Essien said: “Assisting the primary schools is one of our core responsibilities as a government. Therefore, we have resolved to make donation of exercise books, desks and benches a continuous exercise throughout our tenure. However, in this first phase, 200 desks and benches will be donated to four schools. About 50,000 exercise books will also be distributed.”
In his remarks, the Chairman Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) Chairman, Hon. Olawale Oshun, who was present at the event, commended Hon. Essien, saying that such act is what other politicians should emulate.
