We are doing our best in creating job opportunities for both old and young in my local government. In terms of security protection, Hon.Fatai Ajidagba is doing well to bring peace to the people. If the present government in power was not procative, miscreants would have taken over the area at all cost. God is gradually fishing out the bad boys from the area.
