Olorunda Local Council Development Area (LCDA) in Lagos State, under the leadership of Hon. Samson Folorunsho (SAMOLA), has commenced the reconstruction of the Customary Court and Area Office in Iworo community.
This was made known in a press statement released by the Media Aide to the Chairman, Farayola Olusegun and co-signed by the Special Adviser on Information, Adeosun Abdul-Wahab yesterday 8th September, 2020.
According to the statement, “The reconstruction became necessary as the previous structures were old and waning. Also, the Area Office, stationed right beside the Court is no longer conducive environment for administrative activities as the number of employees has since buried the workspace available”. The statement reads
In the words of the Supervisory Councilor for Works, Hon. Olatunji Ogabi as contained in the statement, “The buildings were outdated and dilapidated. Also, the Area office has become too small for the staff and needed expansion and reconstruction. At the time it was built, it housed few staff but at the moment more hands have been recruited and the working space has become too small to accommodate them.
“The Court on the other hand is damaged so it also requires reconstruction to wear a better look and to gain the respect and confidence of the people”
The statement also revealed that the council chairman, who is fondly referred to as Mr. Project by his admirers was engaged in a brief phone chat, where he established that the ongoing reconstruction work is part of the aggressive revamp and provision of important infrastructures across the LCDA.
Congratulating the people of the axis and the workforce, he therefore charged them to take responsibility and ensure that the facilities are well protected and maintained.
“Erecting structures has never really been the problem, it is the maintenance. And as far as maintenance is concerned, it starts with the everyday users. So we are reconstructing for the benefit of our people and we expect this to foster productivity from the workforce while also being properly maintained by all.” He added
