My Special Appeal
H.E. Prince Dapo Abiodun
Kindly permit me to congratulate you on your recent re-election as the Executive Governor of our dear state. This to us is a recharge for more work which we hope you will deliver diligently.
My main purpose of writing this public letter to you is to draw your attention to issues of our drainage and sewage system in Sagamu especially at the Makun axis of the Local Government.
- BREAKING: Ogun Flood Sweeps Away Three, One Reportedly Dead, Two Rescued Sustain Injuries In Sagamu
- Sagamu Council Boss, Ogbeni Afo Commiserates With Victims Affected By Floods, Advise, Vows To Arrest Future Occurrences
- Ogun East Senator Elect, Otunba Gbenga Daniel Empathizes With Sagamu Flood Victims, Set To Provides Relief Materials
It is no more news that the problem of flooding from Ajaka to Awolowo Market through Ogunyanwo Street to Isale Ojumele has led to not just loss of properties, but precious lives of our teeming youths.
The latest havoc occurred yesterday when a young boy was swept away by the flood while many suffered severe injuries. Properties lost could not be enumerated.
I am therefore using this medium to make special appeal for a quick intervention to arrest the ugly scenario. Only God knew what the boy could have become if his live was not cut short by the avoidable perennial flooding in the area. May the soul of the boy rest in perfect peace while we pray that the good Lord will comfort the family to bear the irreparable loss.
There are other areas of the Local Government requiring the same attention. But, as a matter of priority, we want the flooding problem in this area to be permanently solved so as to avoid further losses.
A stitch in time, they say, saves nine.
Many thanks in anticipation of your urgent intervention.
Com Olusegun Sikiru (Success)
President, Sagamu Youth Association
