It is marvellous to note that child delivery and drugs are free, the climate change unit can be compared to some developed climes in the world. I must confess this administration has touched so many lives and put smiles on their faces. Well done honourable Chairman.”

Princess Toress further emphasized that her organization will be willingly to partner with the local government in the health sector.

The leader of the delegation also noted that the organization is a non-profit organization that advocates amongst other things for education, health, empowerment and human rights.

The Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale thanked them for the visit, noting that the local government is a caring one that encourages small scale businesses and practices as well as true tenets of democracy.

Comrade Adewale used the medium to call for a true federal system, where every state would have the control of its resources, security, energy, and education, amongst others.

The local government boss also stressed the need for the adoption of the PRONACO draft constitution as a panacea to solving the myriad of problems affecting the country.
