The Executive Chairman, Hon. Shamsudeen Abiodun Olaleye, who offered prayers to the management team, thanked them for finding time to visit the Council Area.

Hon. Olaleye commended the role of NOA in sensitizing the people and the intelligence gathering of WAI Brigade personnel. He requested for the Agency’s assistance in seeking for a special intervention of the WAI Brigade officers to help maintain sanity and orderliness at the popular ASWANI market within the council area where market men and women display and sell their wares by the roadside.
Earlier, the NOA State Director, Mr. Waheed Ishola, commended the management of the Local Government for the peaceful election and work done so far, going to 200 days in office – a sign of giving to the people the dividend of democracy. He approved the request for WAI Brigade services and stressed NOA’s preparedness to assist the Council in propagating its programmes and activites in the grassroot especially now that government is interested with the Continuous voter’s registration exercise.
