The youngest chairmanship candidate in Coker Aguda local government in Lagos State, under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), Ibrahim Rasaq lekan has vowed to continue where the present administration stopped when elected into office.
Ibrahim Rasaq Lekan who won the APC Primary election in an interview with NEWSEXTRA promised to run Coker Aguda local government successfully by involving critical stakeholders in his administration.
”I will listen to my leaders to guide and lead me on the right path as the youngest chairmanship candidate. The present chairman had laid a very good foundation, so existing infrastructure will not be neglected during my tenure and more roads will be done in Orile and Coker but not excluding Aguda.
Ibrahim said he will promote peace and unity among the leaders, masses and the elders in the local government.
Speaking on his plan for the council, Ibrahim said all areas are very important to touch but job opportunities will be paramount for the youth due to lack of job in the country.
”I have discussed with some companies already that will teach our youths how to repair laptop and phones so that they can be self independent and it will help to boost small scale business and reduce unemployment” Ibrahim added.
He noted that: ”However we also have plan to support the aged, single parents, physically challenged and widows within our community as every member and segment in our society is important. This is why I look forward to run an inclusive system of government where everyone would be a critical stakeholder.
Ibrahim noted that education is one of the things that is important as we are planning to sanitize all the loopholes because the world is getting more advance and we need to bring more technology to schools within the community, educating our pupils and students on the adverse effects of rape, deviant behaviour and other sexual and gender based violence.
Also the community healthcare centers will never be neglected as we will bring more equipment and free drugs to all the local government centers for proper health care services.
Ibrahim hinted that proper monitoring of projects will be taken seriously in order to deliver dividends of democracy to the people.
According to him, we are going to employ people that will be incharge with the responsibility to monitor all these good deeds time to time so that they can always guide us and call our attention where necessary.
