We should not forget that my primary legislative duty is to facilitate, represent, recommend, suggest, amend where necessary and make a bye law that will suit and guide the intrest of the people represened and to also promote the image of the council to greater heights.
Numerous bye law has been made, and some have just pass through the last reading
1)Bye law preventing illegal roadside parking, as this will aid vehicular movements.
2)Bye law prohibiting dumping of refuse and unwanted waste within our community. A healthy environment is wealthy environment.
3)Bye law on illegal collection of revenue, as this will protect the citizens from being duped by anyone. Community members are expected to pay their dues by going to the bank and pay directly not giving money to anyone directly. This will also aid accountability.
4)Bye laws on domestic violence, child abuse and drug abuse.
I appreciate the leader of the Legislative house with the efforts of other legislators in esuring speedy passage of these bye Laws.
I thank all my Political leaders in my ward, right from Hon Taofeek Adaranijo Mhr for the opportunity he gave me to represent the good people of WARD C within and outside, all LG excos, ward Excos, Zonal chairmen, youths, and womens wing of Oko oba orile Agege Lagos state.
