Maidan United has 7 performing CDAs namely; Maidan Central, Ifesowapo, Oluwalogbon, River Side, Unity, Itesiwaju, and Ijisesan.

We have recently, towards the end of the year 2021 had to relocate the transformer to a more convenient location, consequently, the Group had to buy and erect additional 5 high tension poles and also construct another transformer base. We are also in constant touch with Ikeja Electric for possible assistance. We also solicit the support of the Area CDC in this regard.

“Health: As we all know that the Local Government has taken over the health centre, this however not precluded the Group from rendering financial assistance when necessary especially on electricity and constant water supplies. The patronage of the health centre has been relatively low especially for children immunization and child delivery. The health centre belong to everybody. I am imploring the Area CDC, the Group Chairmen to give the health centre maximum publicity to enhance remarkable patronage.

“Road: We have concluded arrangement to start palliative work on our roads; Maidan, Ijisesan, Old Maidan and Ogunleye. I appreciate those who have paid the road rehabilitation levy.
