Chairman, Igando/Ikotun Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, Nigeria, Comrade Monsurudeen Ashamu Olabode, has called on the people of Ijegun to cooperate with the newly installed Onijegun, Oba Nureni Akinremi Ilufemiloye and contribute development ideas to the growth of the community and Lagos State as a whole.
MAO as the chairman is fondly called by his admirers, said this at the official installation and presentation of staff of office and instrument of appointment to the newly crowned monarch.
â€œIt is a known fact that obaship institution is a sacred one, hence it should be accorded such by giving it the respect it deserves from time to time,â€ he pleaded with the community.
Speaking further, he said â€œtodayâ€™s ceremony is indeed a landmark in the history of Ijegunland and Igando/Ikotun as a whole in making the dreams of our people become a reality. I am particularly grateful to God for a day like this, when another great hallmark is made in the history of this local government.â€
