The Executive Secretary of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Deaconess Modupe Ajibola-Ojodu has called stakeholders in the Local government to join hand with the government to build a virile society.

She made this call at the Lagos State House of Assembly (LSHA) constituency stakeholders meeting held at the Local Government Secretariat, Festac Town, the first ever forum to be held simultaneously across the 40 constituencies of the state.

You have a duty to help the government. The government cannot know it all, we need you to succeed.”

The Executive Secretary commended LSHA for giving the populace, most especially the stakeholders in the community the platform to discussing the progress and challenges confronting them.

“we are indeed grateful to the Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa for giving us this opportunity to discuss our problems. Indeed, this forum is a veritable tool at harnessing issues within the community and seeks ways of including them in the year 2016 budget,” she stated.
