The management team of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Lagos State, led by the Director, Mr. Waheed Ishola; Mr. John Emah, Deputy Director, Planning Research and Strategy; Mr. Rapheal Bowoto, Deputy Director, Programmes; Mrs. Aderonke Jacobs, Deputy Director Admin and Human Resources on Tuesday 13th March paid a working visit to Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area to intimate the Executive Chairman on the activities of the agency and seek ways to work seamlessly for the benefit of the citizenry.
The Chairman, Hon. Augustus Adeoye Arogundade, thanked the management team for finding time to visit the Council Area especially the Director whom he referred as a “Super Director”. He expressed his regrets that the local council is yet to be made a full Local Government like in other States, despite the landmark achievements, he implored NOA to assist in that area with awareness. As the best performing chairman in Alimosho and one of the best in Lagos State, the Executive Chairman promised his administration would continue to support the National Orientation Agency (NOA), towards carrying out its programmes and activities in the Local Council Area even to the extent of learning new ways of mobilizing people from them.
Earlier in his remarks, the NOA State Director, Mr. Waheed Ishola, commended the management of the Local Council Development Area for the enormous work done as they celebrated their 200 days in office. He stressed NOA’s preparedness to assist the Council in propagating its programmes and activites in the grassroot area especially now that the government has mandated the Agency to go into massive electoral sensitization campaign by ensuring that citizens are registered, take possession of their Permanent Voter’s Card and vote correctly in the forthcoming 2019 General Elections. “NOA’s primary duty is citizen’s engagement” he said.
High point of the visit was the presentation of information/educational materials/NOA newsletters to the Executive Chairman. In attendance were the Council Administrator, Mrs. Olapeju Akin-Ajayi and other Council Staff.
