The Federal House of Representatives member representing Oshodi-Isolo Constituency II, Engr. Ganiyu Johnson has inaugurated coordinators to oversee activities in the 13 wards of the constituency for effective representation and to bring governance closer to the people at the grassroots.

Johnson was perceived by many as an innovator, being the first to bring such programme closer to the people.

The constituents received the good news with joy, as some of those who spoke to our correspondent said that it was sign of good things to come.

The politician stated that he was under obligation to serve the people in his constituency irrespective of their party affiliations, whether they were All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), partisan and nonpartisan members of the constituency, declaring that he was elected a representative of everyone in the constituency.

He maintained that he was voted to represent everybody and bring the dividend of democracy to the constituency which, according to him, was in tandem with the agenda of his party.

Johnson told the newly inaugurated coordinators to bring in their best and ensure that they assist him to serve the constituents better, even as he warned that he would not hesitate to drop anyone who failed to perform.

He said: “My desire is to improve the lives of every constituent and it has always been my culture to make life better for people which I have been doing even before I contemplated taking up the responsibility of representing my people at the National Assembly. I have a foundation where I cared for indigent students, elderly, women and youths, and with this position I have got another platform to render service to humanity. It is for this reason that I have decided to keep the ball rolling by doing this inauguration today.”
