Thursday, 19th of December, 2019 was indeed a great and joyous day for the good people of Adiyan Alausa CDC as they all appeared in gorgeous and attractive attires to celebrate their annual Community Day.
The Area CDC chairman, Rev. Dr. J.B. Adesola in his welcome address titled “There is hope” said the aim of the programme is to appreciate Almighty God for His faithfulness and sustenance as people.
Part of his speech reads: “The title of this address is there is hope because within these two years, we have experienced a lot of discouraging circumstances, attitudes and utterances across ages and status or class with such common statements as; what are we gaining by coming together as CDA, especially CDC, they even see active community members as jobless and working for what to eat.
But on the contrary, I want to assure all that gather here today that there is hope and the strength is in our unity for the purpose of making our community comfortable, not just for ourselves now but for generations to come.”
Dr. Adesola, who is also the 2nd Assistant Secretary, Ifo Zonal CDC also gave instances to prove that there is hope. “Few instances of hope already; during our registration process two (2) years ago, Health Centre at Temidire was our main project but the hope was lost due to lack of fund and necessary drive. But when we came on board, to the glory of God, with our push and intervention of people that matters, the health centre is ready for use wholly sponsored by the government.
“Temidire Primary School has been in existence by the effort of fantastic leaders and corporate organizations but became overpopulated and today, a block of three (3) standard classrooms is completed by the government and some furniture supplied older classrooms by the state government is made possible or accelerated by the push effort on the Area CDC. At this point, I want to specially appreciate the support of our own Hon. Adebayo Ekun for making all these projects a reality as the Chairman of Agbado / Oke – Aro LCDA, we wish you more success in your future political career.
“Road project at Mike Akinsuyi to Oremeji / Olowokere was started without any take – off grant, and the kind of support received so far would not have come if not for team spirit and effort of our people.
“Against status quo when our territory was labeled as black spot and hide out for unscrupulous dements. The introduction of tenant date form by Ajuwon division of PCRC through our vibrant and functional Unit at PCRC has driven most of them away and very soon the Area CDC will officially handover the two (2) plots of land donated by the traditional rulers of Adiyan Alausa for police station project to our Unit of Police Community Relation Committee for development.”
The Patron of the Area CDC, Chief (Engr.) E. O. Soetan in an interview with our correspondent said the programme is meant to appreciate God for his protection on the community throughout the year and to commit the coming year into His hand.
“The programme create awareness for those people who have not actively involved in this community. When they see us gather like this every year, it give them hope that there is something that is happening in the community, it give them hope that they are going to contribute to the development of the community, it give them that encouragement that we can still work together and gather resources together to do what we can do to develop our environment, Chief Soetan asserted.”
He then advise members of the community to always cooperate and contribute their quota to community development. “The people should cooperate to use our resources physically, financially and everything that we have to develop our environment in terms of road to make sure that the road is good, in terms of security, to provide enough security for all of us and to make our environment very decent place for us to live in, he added.”
