Chairman of Ojokoro Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Hammed Idowu Tijani, said he was seeking a second term in office to consolidate projects carried out so far.
According to him, more developmental projects will be evenly spread across all the wards if re-elected.
Tijani otherwise called HID spoke yesterday during his official declaration for re-election at Ojokoro Mini Sports Centre, Lagos.
He said he had reconstructed more than 14 roads with drainage and asphalt.
Tijani said free exercise books and writing materials were always distributed to pupils in all public primary schools at the beginning of every session.
“Moreover, New Oko-Oba Primary school and Gbeleyi Primary schools 1 and 2 were rehabilitated, while GCE and JAMB forms were distributed to indigent students on regular basis,” he said.
He noted that the Primary Health Care Centre (PHC) at Isokan has been rehabilitated and provided with modern medical equipment.
“Similarly, the PHC at Kola (Alagbado) was also upgraded to provide 24 hour medical services. All the other medical facilities in various parts of the LCDA were also given facelift,” he said.
According to him, some of the footballers discovered in football talent hunt organised by the council are currently playing in Ukraine.
“We do hold quarterly empowerment programmes for our women and youths and the aged are placed on monthly stipends. We also provide official vehicles for workers’ union and political office holders. A land has been purchased for the construction of our party’s permanent secretariat while party members are also taken care of, on monthly basis,” he said.
He thanked Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, party leaders and members and the people of the council for the privilege given him to serve.
He said all his modest achievements would not have been possible with the limited resources, if not for the support, cooperation, understanding and encouragement of the people.
“I wish to formally offer myself for service once again, as I passionately seek your mandate to recontest for the chairmanship seat of Ojokoro LCDA in the forthcoming local government election in Lagos,” he said.
Dignitries who graced the occasion include APC stalwarts, market men and women, traditional rulers, youths and a popular Yoruba music artiste King Saheed Osupaalso engaged the large crowd to good music.
