100 DAYS SCOREBOARD: How Alimosho chairmen fared in their first 100 days in office

The Council bosses generally are still warming up for the tasks ahead of them. With a very few exception.

IT'S one hundred days today since the swearing in of Alimosho LGA and LCDAs Chairmen! Here are what we were able to sniff out from the 100 days on how our leaders have impacted on our communities so far.


Honourable Jelili Sulaimon, the LGA Chairman, has notably overseen empowerment programmes and training of Alimosho residents within the LGA. He is also still warming up on infrastructural projects of which we know him to be passionate about, going by his last tenure. He recently inspected ongoing projects and launched some clear-cut laudable partnership with foreign agencies and his empowerment programmes are initiatives to note. Yet, we still look forward to better days when more infrastructural projects will take precedence in the actions of Jelili. 


Ayobo-Ipaja local council development area has not seen much delivery of significant infrastructural projects in Honourable Mrs Bola Shobowale's first 100 days as LCDA chairman yet. The first three months of her tenure has seen the LCDA boss take tours around the Ayobo-Ipaja area to ascertain community projects needed by her constituents. Recent work on the road on Animashaun Street was sanctioned by Honourable Shobowale. Although there are plans to build a primary health care centre and renovate a couple of roads, Ayobo-Ipaja remains slow in picking up on its plans. 


Comrade Lasisi Akinsanya, Igando-Ikotun LCDA chairman, has already started fulfilling some of his promises to residents of his LCDA. Akinsanya is probably aiming to be the best administrator within Alimosho local government area. His few interventions in these 100 days have been improving the primary health care system, remodeling schools, and providing basic amenities such as portable water. Comrade Lasisi Akinsanya, on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, commissioned the newly renovated Ikotun Primary Health Centre and the reconstructed Olukotun Nursery and Primary School. These are enough to demonstrate his commitment to work in such a short period of time. 


Mosan-Okunola is as equally slow in picking things up as Ayobo-Ipaja as far as physical efforts to improve the LCDA is concerned. Honourable Olabisi Adebajo, the chairperson of Mosan-Okunola LCDA, has been praised for significant efforts in her LCDA, but all Adebajo is credited for are mostly insignificant in this review since such efforts were all made in her previous tenure. The council boss, popularly known as Abisco, needs to hit the ground running very soon. did a recent examination of Mosan-Okunola and there are numerous street roads in serious need of correction. 


The Executive Chairman of Egbe- Idimu LCDA, Honourable Kunle Sanyaolu Olowoopejo has also had a number of projects to his name just under 100 days. To his credit, a 500KVA transformer was delivered to residents of United Egbe CDA, commissioned a borehole tap at Bola Taiwo Street, Agodo, and he also had renovated the roads on Olusesi Street, Palmer Street, Palace Way, and Sobukola Street. His constituents will be hoping he does not rest on his oars any time soon. 


The Chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo LCDA, Honourable David Famuyiwa is having a slow start but has recently made his mark on education with the furniture donations he made to schools on Wednesday December 1st, 2021. Agbado/Oke-Odo LCDA has more to come and we seem to see the signs. But are we to wait for another 100 days?


Perhaps, citizens of Alimosho can spur their executives to action by tabling their concerns among themselves and pushing them forward to their leaders. We perceive Alimosho is fortunate to have a crop of competent leaders who have the communities at heart, still, it is obvious that many areas are yet to feel the full dividends of democracy after 100 days of putting the leaders in power.
