Flooding: Oyo community sends SOS to Makinde, Council Chief
Don’t Rest On Your Oars, PFN Tells Makinde
Residents of Alatare Community, Ologuneru, Ibadan, have called on Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to ensure easy access into the community of over 5,000 residents.
The plea was conveyed through a letter to the governor entitled: ‘’Letter of Consideration for Assistance towards the construction of a motorable bridge in Alatare Community, Olonde, Ibadan’’.
The Chairman of the community, Mr. Abu Rafiu, explained that a large natural stream flowing across the community has been ravaging the community, destroying residents’ properties and slowing the community’s development.
He, therefore, appealed to the governor and the Chairman, Ido Local Council, Alhaji Shereef Adeojo, to use their good offices to come to their aid. Rafiu urged them to, as a matter of urgency, construct a standard motorable bridge and drainage that would help them move easily into their community.
Meanwhile, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has urged Oyo State Governor Makinde not to rest on his oars in taking the state to a greater height.
The PFN made the call when Makinde hosted its leaders to a meeting tagged: ‘Prayer Breakfast’, at the Government House, Agodi Ibadan.
The meeting led by PFN President, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, also had national officers of the body in attendance. Also, zonal officers as well as the South West Chairmen of Oyo, Ondo, Ogun, Osun, Lagos and Ekiti states attended the prayer meeting.
Speaking briefly before they went into the prayer session, Oke said the state governor was striving to see that Oyo State develop on all fronts.
The PFN noted that the developmental efforts of Makinde could be felt across the length and breadth of the state.
“We don’t have anything to give than to continue to pray for the governor, the state and its people that God’s glory and grace should envelope us,” he said.
In his short response, the governor thanked the leadership of the Christian body for deeming it fit to have the prayer meeting with him.
