On Thursday, November 11, the Executive Chairman, Obafemi Owode Local Government, Ambassador Adesina Ogunsola celebrated  100 days that his administration was inaugurated by the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.

In a Media parley held at the local government secretariat, Owode Egba, Ogun State, Ambassador Ogunsola said one thing that had remained constant in his administration was the desire to make a difference in the lives of the electorate who freely gave him their mandate. 

The chairman said “no doubt, the challenges at this level of government are enormous, considering the fact that it is the closest government to the grassroots.” 

He however, posited that he had remained courageous and resolute in his quest to ensure that the story changed for good.

The Chairman ascribed the successes recorded so far to the unity of purpose and total support shown by all concerned stakeholders. 

In his words, I was once the Secretary to the local government for about three administrations and my belief is “when you carry everybody along, and open up the democratic chance, you will give everybody the opportunity to contribute and they will be able to come to develop and contribute to the progress of the administration.”

Ambassador Ogunsola said since he assumed office he had been able to put smiles in the faces of the serving workers in the local government, as he had ensured that regular attention was given to their urgent needs thereby fostering good working relationship with the workers to achieve their quests

He added that his regime had installed maximum security guarantee in the local government by putting all the security agencies on the alert as the Chairman and Chief Security Officer of the local government, so that the good people of Obafemi Owode would always sleep with their eyes closed. 

In his statement, “We have shared ideas with the security agents to be proactive and, the issue of security has been taken seriously by me because safety for one is safety for all.”

The Executive Chairman reiterates that the youth are the bedrock of the society, even our future, and any community that does not do its best to develop the youth is a failed society that will remain under developed.
