Isolo Council To Partner Chellarams On CSR


The Chairman of Isolo Local Council Development Area, Alhaji Shamsudeen Abiodun Olaleye, has reiterated his commitment to bringing the dividends of democracy to the people of the area despite government’s bureaucratic bottleneck.

Olaleye, who stated this when officials of the Amalgamated Ilasamaja Residents Association (AIRA) paid him a courtesy visit in his office, declared that government’s bureaucracy cannot stop him in his quest to make life better for the people.

He remarked that the race for excellence has no limit, adding that “developmental challenges are ever present and they are part of our everyday life but as administrators, we should not allow such debar us from achieving our goals.”

Olaleye said he has no reason not to fulfil his promises to the people of the LCDA because most of the projects in his programme do not exceed the budget allocation of the council area. He said: “My promise to the people remains sacrosanct and by the time we are marking our 100 days in office, we should be counting 50 motorable roads within our council area. W e have a choice to deliver on our promises and even go beyond that.

“We would be delivering to the first batch of SS3 students a centre for free coaching classes in preparation for their WAEC examinations. We also have a good relationship with resident companies and such companies are corporately responsible.

Chellarams Nigeria has promised to give 10 students scholarship in the pursuit of their academic career.”

In another development, Isolo Local Council Development Area has agreed on a partnership with Chellarams Nigeria for the sustainable development of the council area particularly in the provision of bursary award and improvement of primary health care delivery.

The partnership agreement was made recently when the LCDA boss paid a courtesy visit to the company, the first of its kind since he took over as the council chairman early November.

The council boss, who was received by the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr. Aditya Chellarams and other members of the company’s management, made known his administration’s plans and programmes to develop the council area. Olaleye solicited the assistance of the company in his quest to realise some of his administration’s goals and objectives.

In his response, Mr Chellarams said he was happy to receive the council boss and pledged his company’s resolve to partner with the LCDA as most of the council’s programmes fit into the company’s corporate social responsibility’s agenda.
