LG Boss Tasks CDCs On Cooperation


Members of Community Development Committees in Lagos State have been charged to join hands with council chairmen in order to bring development to the state as well as assist in realising the 10-point agenda of the Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola led-administration in the state.

Prince Mursiku Yinka Durosinmi, Chairman of Ojo local Government Area made the call during the inauguration of the newly elected executive members of the Community Development Committee (CDC), in the area recently.

Speaking at the occasion, the chairman urged the CDC comprising 80 community development associations, to assist in tapping and generating to its fullest, all available sources of revenue accrued to the local government.

According to him, “it is pertinent to remind you that the present administration expects you to cooperate with local the government and assist it in all its activities and services when called upon to render and to monitor all our projects in your various communities in terms of collection, security and to discourage and stop vandalisation of electricity poles and cables and water pipes.

“The importance of feedback information should be encouraged and endeavour to invite all heads of departments/units to discuss expectations of the local government and the communities.”

He called on members of the communities to always obey government’s rules and laws and desist from acts of environmental nuisance by building on drainage channels, while they should always pay their taxes and other levies as at when due.

The council chairman said his administration would contribute its quota by making funds available for effective community service delivery in the grassroots.

He assured the residents of security of lives and properties by giving necessary encouragement to the neighbourhood watch outfit, the police and other security agencies and enlighten as well as educate residents on the need to assist security agents.

The CDC chairman, Mr. Tudonu Joel, who was reelected for another two-year term, commended the council chairman for his support, while appealing to the executive members to see themselves as representatives of the people and remain loyal to his administration for the development of the local government.
