The residents of Ishaga area of Isolo Local Council Development Area have urged the Chairman of the council, Hon. Shamsudeen Olaleye to accelerate action on the rehabilitation of Baale and Oluokun Streets as he promised.
Speaking with Echoews on behalf of the community today, the Chairman, Ishaga Central Community Development Area, Mr. Anofiu Yusuf said that the local council chairman had promised to reconstruct Oluokun street while Baale street would be done by the state government.
Yusuf, who said that the residents of Oluokun Street particularly have been battling with uncontrollable flood, said it would be their joy if the local council boss could come to their aid.
He said any time it rained too matter how little, the whole street would be full of water while the flood entered each house due to lack of good drainages and well-constructed road.
He stated that although the local council chairman, during his meeting with the residents of the street in April, promised that work would commence on the street in July/August as they could not start the work during the rainy season; Yusuf appealed that the promise should be kept.
He however commended Olaleye on his welfare package for the elderly ones within the community, saying the gesture is a worthy one.
He further disclosed that the local council boss has also been taking care of the youths by providing jobs for them.
He therefore urged him not to relent in this act but to further extend it to other categories of people in the community.
