The Community Development Committee (CDC), Oshdi-Isolo LG, has rejoiced with the council chairman, Otunba Kehinde Oloyede over the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the just concluded elections.

The party won the governorship, House of Representatives, and State House of Assembly elections in the council area.

The committee pledged to continue to support the party and the chairman for the progress and further development of the council area.

Led by its chairman, Alhaji Adisa Olawoyin, the committee thanked the council chairman for providing the enabling environment for the CDC to thrive and participate actively in the last elections.


Olawoyin assured the council chairman that the CDC will continue to support him in his drive to bring development to the local government.

“We congratulate you on the election success of the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the House of Assembly elections that produced Otunba Stephen Kayode Ogundipe as a lawmaker-elect to represent Oshodi-Isolo constituency 1. May God be with them and you to steer the affairs of the council to more prosperous heights.”
