The Chairman, Yewa South Local Government (YSLG), Hon. Lateef Salami, has embarked on some key projects across the area to improve the socio-economic well-being of the people.
Hon. Salami disclosed some of the visions of his administration during the foundation laying ceremony of a 20-unit lock-up shops, at Sayedero Market in Ilaro, saying improving the lives of the people was paramount to him.
“This is first of many, as we are ready to also construct 28 open stalls in the same market. We are also going to construct a block of six units of VIP toilet at the Council’s Secretariat, rehabilitate a block of three classrooms at Ilobi Irinja Primary School, rehabilitate Alaanu Health Centre in Owode, sink borehole at Oke-Odan, clear the refuse pilling up at the dumpsite along Owode Road and maintain the local government’s plantation.
"A bunch of other projects will also follow as soon as we are buoyant. All to prove to our people that we are not a government that gets into power and forgets the source of its authority", he said.
The Chairman added that comfort of the people of the area was what was on the front burner of his administration, assuring that no stone would be left unturned in pursuit of making life better for the people than when he came on board.
He appreciated the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for the financial backing of the projects, saying, “None of these would have been possible if the Governor had said no. The fact that he said yes was the reason our people at the grassroots would have a better life.”
Speaking at the event, the Iya-loja of Ilaro, Alhaja Risikat Idowu, who commended the Chairman for considering market women in his developmental agenda, said the project would ease the stress and other security issues encountered while managing their goods, tasking other political office holders in the area to emulate the gesture by contributing to the infrastructural development of the market.
