The Chairman of Isolo Local Council Development Area, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, Alhaji Shamsudeen Abiodun Olaleye has given kudos to the management of Complete Communications Limited, publisher of Complete Sports newspaper for discharging its corporate social responsibility in the area.
Olaleye who made the complimentary remark when he paid a familiarisation visit to the corporate head office of the media organisation at Okota, Isolo, commended the organisation for its unique commitment to educational development in Isolo council area through the construction of a block of six classrooms and an administrative building at Olokun Primary School II along Godwin Omonua Street, Isolo, in 2010 as part of activities marking its 25th anniversary.
According to LCDA boss, who was received by the Group Managing Director of Complete Sports, Alhaji Mumuni Alao and other management staff of the company, the task of providing free and qualitative primary education as enshrined in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, MDGs, cannot be achieved without the contribution of corporate bodies like Complete Communication.
He, therefore, enjoined other companies and corporate bodies to be socially responsible by partnering with his administration in developing Isolo LCDA.
In his response, the Group Managing Director of the company, Alhaji Mumuni Alao, thanked the council boss for the visit and pledged his companyâ€™s readiness to partner with the council in the area of educational development, stressing that his companyâ€™s interest in education is borne out of the fact that education is the bedrock of human development and accomplishment in life.
â€œIn fact, CCLâ€™s achievement today is as a result of the sound skills its management and staff acquired through education,â€ Alao said.
To demonstrate his companyâ€™s readiness to partner with the LCDA, Alao requested Olaleye to furnish his company with his plans and programmes so as to know how best the company can give the necessary assistance.
Alao also pledged his companyâ€™s assistance in the area of media coverage of the councilâ€™s activities and events at all times.
