“It was a pleasure working with the outgone CDA executives led by Mr. Adesegun Olatunde. Under Mr. Olatunde the CDC was at its best by way of project monitoring, community advocacy and ensuring that the various CDAs were active in their respective areas,” Olasoju remarked.
Speaking further, the council honcho congratulated the new executives of the various CDAs, especially the Chairmen, secretaries and treasurers. He went on to hail them for the rancour-free ratification of the new CDC executives.
“I heartily congratulate you on your emergence as the leaders of your respective CDAs. This is a call to service and I believe you will serve selflessly and diligently. To the CDC, what more can I say than urge you to up your activities towards enhancing community advocacy and development. Be assured that we will continually work hand-in-hand with you, like before, to achieve your plans and also to help us in the discharge of the expected delivery of democracy dividends at the grassroots,” Olasoju concluded.
