Itire/Ikate LCDA Underdeveloped — Aspirant


A chairmanship aspirant for the October 20ll Local Government election in Itire/Ikate Local Council Development Area, LCDA, Lagos state, Southwest, Nigeria, Hon. Adegbenro Akinsoye has described the area as under-developed in terms of education, health, social amenities and infrastructure.

Speaking to newsmen on why he was aspiring for the LCDA’s number one seat, the accountant and author turned politician said he was responding to the yearnings of the masses of the area for a developmental change which has eluded them ever since the advent of current democratic system.

Hon. Akinyosoye who had contested for councillorship in 1998, House of Assembly in 2007 and 2011, but stepped down on the instruction of the leadership of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) said as an obedient and loyal party member, he waited all this while because of his respect for the party leadership and the party rules.

Says the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho, MBA undergraduate, “My people in Itire/Ikate are seriously yearning for a change because they’ve not really enjoyed the dividends of democracy. Go round the LCDA, you’ll see that it lacks infrastructure. The level of education and healthcare delivery is very poor.

“In as much as I’m not out to condemn anybody, I must emphasise that the people of Itire/Ikate deserve a lot better than what they are experiencing now, especially the pupils who study in poor environment,” Hon. Akinyosoye stated.

He lamented that the only public primary school in Ikate, Akanji Primary School, is still under construction since the past three years, saying that his first challenge if elected would be to reinvigorate the educational and healthcare system in the area, as well as improving infrastructure that is now in shambles.
