A chairmanship candidate in Agbado/Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, Dr. Augustine Adeoye Arogun, has promised that his style of administration will be based on collective leadership.
While addressing different groups of people in the LCDA comprising the CDAs, market leaders, motorcycle operators association and party men and women, recently, he emphasised on the need for collective administration of the resources of the council.
According to him, committees will be formed for collection of revenues, where both politicians and workers will collaborate with the aim of increasing it.
Arogun also explained that his monthly allocation will be made known to the party leaders and the executive committee, so that whatever is set aside for projects implementation will be decided together by the partyâ€™s leadership, while priority of projects in each ward will be set with the CDAs and traditional rulers.
The politician also stressed that accountability will be the hallmark of his administration, while people will be briefed on every 100 days in office about the development and programmes of the administration where peopleâ€™s opinion and contributions can be sought.
The aspirant also said that skills acquisition and youth development will be taken seriously, stressing that women empowerment and small scale businesses will be pursued vigorously, adding, â€œregular retreats will be organised for workers on the need for improved development of infrastructure in the LCDA.â€
Arogun, a former Assistant Director of Health Education, stressed the need for proper development of primary health care in Agbado/Oke-Odo, while pledging to make it a model for other councils in the state.
