Egbe-Idimu Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Alimosho Local Government in Lagos has urged residents to be diligent in fulfilling their civic responsibility, stating that it would aid development in the community.

Head of Department, Agric, Rural and Social Development, Egbe-Idimu LCDA, Babatunde Agbofuja, stated this at the weekend while inaugurating Ogunrombi Estate Residents Association (OGRA) as a Community Development Association (CDA) in Lagos.

As contained in the community development global guidelines, the CDA is intended to fashion conditions of economic and social growth for the entire community with its dynamic involvement in community schemes.


Most of these communities have also embarked on many self-help projects, ranging from construction of community halls, installation of street lights, transformers, building of police posts, drainages and construction of health centres as a way of complimenting the efforts of both state and local governments to engender growth and development.

Agbofuja said the CDA in the state is crucial to growth and development.

In his remarks, chairman, Ogunrombi Estate CDA, Bola Lawson, said the estate would cooperate with the local council to make the environment conducive for living, while appealing to the council to support the CDA in repairing failed roads within the community.

The chairman, Community Development Committee, Rabiu Kazeem, stressed the need for residents to participate in the activities of the community, adding that the purpose of CDA was to facilitate smooth running of activities between the government and the residents.
