Chairman of Isolo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Shamsudeen Abiodun Olaleye, yesterday sworn-in executive committee members that would assist him in bringing dividends of democracy to the people of Isolo in the next four years.

The ceremony held at the council hall was witnessed by member of the Governor Advisory Council, Chief M.A. Taiwo; and member of the Lagos House of Assembly representing Oshodi/Isolo Constituency II, Jude Idimogu, among other prominent politicians from the council area.

The council boss, in his speech, urged the new exco members to live up to expectations in their responsibilities noting that their appointment is a call to service. Among the officers sworn-in were Olojede Emmanuel Kolawole (Secretary to Local Government) and Helen Ogunmakinwa (Chief of Staff). The supervisors include Kubirat Taiwo, Wasiu Oketoki, Buhari Bello, Saheed Abiodun, Nofisat Sobayo and Balikis Agbabiaka.

Meanwhile, the 8th legislative house of Oshodi/Isolo Local Government Area has proposed a byelaw that would enhance adequate security within the council in collaboration with the Community Development Council (CDC) and Community Development Association (CDAs) leaders.

Speaking at the public hearing, leader of the house, Rasheed Obasa, said the byelaw seeks to address the security challenges in the area. “If the proposed byelaw becomes a law, financing, employment of security personnel and prosecution of defaulters would be the responsibility of CDC in conjunction with the police.”
