The Omu-Aran community in Irepodun local government area of Kwara has hailed the rural Intervention project embarked upon by a former member of the House of Representatives, Hon, Gbenga Makanjuola.
The President, Omu-Aran Development Association (ODA), Chief Bisi Adeyemi gave the commendation while reacting to the on-going rehabilitation of Anglican Church/Olupo-Odo/Igangu roads in Omu-Aran metropolis.
Makanjuola, the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki had flagged off the rehabilitation of the roads as part of his communal intervention project in Omu-Aran.
Makanjuola had earlier facilitated the installation of 138 street light poles across major streets in the community.
Adeyemi said the deplorable state of roads had remained one of the major challenges being faced by the people of the community.
He disclosed that the ODA executive had paid a visit to the Government House in Ilorin in September to remind the government of its promise to commence the rehabilitation of the roads within the 2018 budget appropriation.
Adeyemi, who described Makanjuola’s communal efforts as unprecedented and a welcome development, urged other well meaning individual and groups to emulate the kind gesture in moving the community forward.
Makanjuola, in his remark, described the project as his own little way of giving back to the people of the community.
“As we await the government road intervention to commence very soon, I felt it is also our responsibility to add value to the living standard and wellbeing of our people through the communal project initiative,” he said,
The Senate President’s aide who expressed optimism in PDP’s ability to come out victorious in the coming elections, urged party members not to succumb to any act of intimidation but remain loyal and steadfast.
He described the party’s recent stakeholder’s forum in the community as a wake-up call to members and a veritable avenue to plan ahead in order to achieve the desired victory at the poll.
