Sanusi, who underscored the need for the Chairmen to contribute their quota to the socio-economic development of their areas, lauded them for their ingenuity in the promotion of agricultural practices, revenue generation initiatives and grading of rural roads amongst others.

Speaking, other members including Ganiyu Oyedeji, Adebowale Ojuri, Rasaq Oduntan, Akinpelu Aina and Adeyemi Harrison charged them on the need to develop a blueprint that would assist the LGs and LCDAs in improving the standard of living of the people and equally boost the revenue drive for the implementation of more people-oriented programmes in their council areas.

In his remarks remarks, the Chairman of the Remo North Olutayo Awoyemi noted that there was an ongoing construction of a health centre and grading of township roads within Isara and Orile-Oko , while his Ikenne counterpart, Rotimi Akinsanya explained that the council renovated health facilities, revived poultry farm and strengthened the revenue drive within the period under review.
