The Chairman of Isolo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Hon. Shamusudeen Abiodun Olaleye has condemned planned protest by some residents of the area over alleged neglect of their roads.
Speaking on Tuesday with journalists at the council secretariat, the council boss described the planned protest as having a hidden agenda hence would not represent the collective interest of the majority of the people of the council area.
“It is strange that people will protest non-grading of their roads in the rainy season and even more strange when you consider the amount of work we’ve put into road construction, rehabilitation and grading in this council. So nobody needs the Wisdom of Solomon to know that some mischief makers are at work and we have to tell the world about their mischief and expose them,” Olaleye said.
According to the council boss, his administration has not relented and would not relent in impacting positively on the lives of the people of the council area despite attempts to discredit it by few disgruntled elements.
“We have done well in impacting positively on the lives of the people of this council area and we have been receiving commendations from agencies within and outside the state. When the Lagos House of Assembly Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs came on inspection they were impressed and one of the council areas fully acknowledged in their reports,” he said.
Investigation by our correspondent revealed that the Olaleye administration has graded and rehabilitated more roads; constructed more schools and constructed more public health centres than any previous administration in the council area.
Within the first 100 hundred days of the Olaleye administration, over 40 roads were rehabilitated, constructed and graded while in the last one year, more than double of that amount has been constructed and rehabilitated.
The administration has equally constructed, rehabilitated and equipped prmary health care centres in the council while apart from customised exercise books and writing materials presented to pupils in public schools in the council area; over N6 million has been spent on bursary and scholarship awards to more than 240 indigent students of the council origin in various tertiary institutions in the country.
This is apart from massive reconstruction and rehabilitation work carried out in various public primary schools in the area.
