An Action Congress councillorship candidate in ward 6, Osogbo Local Government Council
Area of Osun State, Mr Idowu Oyedele, has taken up the infrastructural challenges in the area, by constructing drainages in some places in the remote area.
OSUN DEFENDER gathered that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) councillor, representing the area, Mr Segun Aina, has neglected his constituency in terms of infrastructural provision and development.
It was gathered that residents of the area, whose houses have been taken over by flood, had for good three times, met with Aina, appealing to him to construct the drainage in order to create free way for water erosion but the request of the residents of the council area, particularly those at Oke Ola street, was turned down by the councillor on the grounds that the residents were all AC members.
Findings showed that Aina, who lived at Okeola before he was “imposed” as the councillor of the area, has changed his residence to Ogo Oluwa area for better living standard.
OSUN DEFENDER learnt that the councillor’s in law’s house, located at 2, Oke-Ola Bye pass is always full of flood with water whenever it rains.
A community leader in Oke-Ola, Alhaji Rasheed Oyedele, who spoke with OSUN DEFENDER on their request, stated that since Aina became a councillor of the area, he is accountable to both AC and PDP members in the area.
Oyedele commended the contribution of the AC councillorship candidate to the growth and development of the area, saying that the resident of Oke-Ola would never forget his immense contribution.
Another resident of the area, Mrs Theresa Arigbede, berated the uncommon the incumbent councillor, stressing that the councillor is not worthy to be a leader of the people.
OSUN DEFENDER gathered that the councilor has been making fraudulent efforts to claim the project being put up by the AC councillorship candidate when completed.
However, the residents of the area have warned the councilor to desist from such action, saying that claiming the project by Aina could trigger violence.
