The new Director of National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Oshodi, Mrs. Ngozi Nbaneri has sought the cooperation of the Community Development Committee (CDC) to be able to deliver her service effectively in the community.
During her visit to the CDC, she appealed to the committee to constantly give reports concerning security issues to make her representation effective.
She also saddled the CDC with the responsibility of sensitising the residents of the community to register their child birth to reveal the real population statistics of the geographical area.
Nbaneri, who noted that birth registration exercise has started in Ewu Central Mosque, said it would gradually extend to Mafoluku and Shogunle areas.
Meanwhile, the CDC members asked Nbaneri to attend to the delay of their permanent national identity cards which have been registered since 2014 but yet to be given.
They also requested for extension of immunisation programme exercise to one month rather than two weeks time frame.
Responding, the NOA boss said the people could transact business with their National Identification Number (NIN) temporary slip while waiting for the permanent cards to be sorted out.
Regarding the immunisation extension, Nbaneri said the committee would be notified.
