Badagry, Lagos: Year 2020 Budget Retreat of Ajeromi-Ifelodun LGA began Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at FAMS Embassy Suites, Badagry.
The Retreat which is an annual event put together by local governments to appraise the previous year’s budget and properly plan for the income and expenditure for the year in review is held across the Federation and Ajeromi-Ifelodun LGA is not left out.
Kicking off the budget, Mrs. Ikuforiji M.A., the Head of Administration of AJIF LGA welcomed all participants as she urged everyone to carefully partake in the day to day proceedings.
In his goodwill message after the first lecture, the Executive Chairman of the second largest and most populous LGAs in Lagos State, Hon. Fatai Adekunle Ayoola welcomed everyone to what he called, “Budget of Continual Development.”
“This year’s budget Retreat is where important decisions on the way we are going to expand what we have been doing before will be finalized” he began.
“I urge you all to support this administration to the last and I want to also thank you for the support you have been giving us.”
He also addressed the fact that his administration last year focused more on Education and sporting facilities but would this year focus more attention on construction of 21 roads.
“We have focused more on building school infrastructure and sporting facilities, but this time around, we are focusing and constructing 21 roads. It’s a tall challenge, but by the grace of God we shall get to that spot,” he said.
We are also going to give you a brand new Secretariat which will be ready for commissioning by May 29 and by extension the Housing Estate at Tolu when the Governor will be visiting.”
He further went on to state that the secretariat will have a Banking Hall, ATM Gallery as well as house a Christian Chapel.
The Councilors have also not been left out as they will be moving to the top end of the secretariat.
“We are serious about completing ongoing projects; especially the Primary Health Centre at Alayabiagba” Ayoola assured.
The amiable Council boss was also quick to point out his passion for a community that made him who he is today and the pains currently faced.
“Our attachment and commitment to Ajegunle is without some pains. We are happy doing what we are doing, and by the Grace of God we shall come back next year to finish what we have started” he posited.
