We Now Feel impact Of Democracy Through Finance Minister’s Contribution – – Ogun Community Indigenes
Some indigenes of Ayila community in Ogun Waterside area of Ogun State had continued to shower praises on the nation’s Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, for her tremendous contributions to the development and growth of the community.
They were of the opinion that the community now enjoyed Federal government impact in the area of development through the magnanimity of the Minister who was a daughter of the soil.
In 2016, AYILA, an agrarian town in Ogun Waterside local government area of the state began to feel the true presence of the Federal Government such that had never been witnessed in the past.
Adeosun, fulfilling the promise made during the campaign towards the 2015 general elections, according to Felix – a Chieftain of Ayila – noted that construction of a block of five classrooms in Ayila was among the first phase of projects in the educational sector facilitated by the Honorable Minister of Finance, suggesting her interest in the capacity building of sons and daughters of Ayila.
He noted that Adeosun’s love for her community had actually prompted her to put a new face on Ayila such that the road from Ayede to Ayila is currently undergoing construction by RCC Construction company.
He added that a multi-million naira borehole had been completed to end the years of water scarcity in the land.
According to Felix, Adeosun ended the long years of pains suffered in crossing the body of water between Ayila and Okebi community.
“From time immemorial, travelling to Okebi has been by boat, but as soon as Adeosun became the Finance Minister, she fulfilled her promise by building a bridge on the water.
“Now, everybody goes to Okebi by vehicle or motorbike.
“From all of us here, I mean the entire people of Ayila, we are proud of the Minister, because we are now relieved from past years of difficulties resulting from lack of what I will be referred to as social security.
“Roads in Ayila are now motorable, we have a stable source of water through the borehole she dug for us. There are additional classrooms facilitated by her. So, we believe she is doing well.
Alfred, another stakeholder in Ayila community, however, appealed to the Minister to assist more in the area of employment opportunity to the youths in the area, adding that the town had produced a good number of graduates who were presently unemployed.
He urged the Honorable Minister to use her good office to get the community out of 15 years of darkness.
“We are feeling her impact but we also need more in the area of Healthcare. The primary health care in Ayila community does not have enough facilities to take care of the increasing population.
“We will continue to pray for her success as she makes us proud as a good ambassador of Ayila town, “he said.
