The Lagos State Government has commended members of Sokedile Community Development Association ( SCODA) in Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government area of the state over the construction of the community's phase 2 road.

The commendation came  recently   during series of lined up activities in celebration of the first Community Day in the area.    

 The Celebration  was graced by top government functionaries including the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ifako -Ijaiye , CSP Gbenga Stephen, as well as  dignitaries from all walks of life.

The Lagos State Government praised members of community and described them as 'development conscious' group of people. The Government showered praises upon the community with an award of #500,000:00.

The occasion was accentuated by speeches and lecture. 

Speaking at the occasion, the Chairman of the Association, Emeritus Professor Peter Olufemi Adeniyi traced the origin of the Association to 2017 as well as developments in the year that was associated with heavy downpour. 

Adeniyi recalled that the heavy downpour of the year damaged many roads in the community following which requests and appeals  were made on government without positive response.

"The community then felt since government had failed to positively respond to series of our requests to fix the roads, we decided to begin to tackle the problem by ourselves starting from Pa Alao Ojo  street".

Professor Adeniyi stated that the road was financed by levy and donations. 

He reiterated the commitment of SCODA to fixing all roads in the community and that they would not stop until every street in the community has been taken care of. 

Professor Adeniyi further pledged the support of SCODA to youth efforts at providing security light in strategic places in the community. 

The Chairman similarly hinted of plans to regulate Okada riders in the community as part of efforts to curb insecurity in the area . 

He said plans are under way in the new year to set up  a fund raising  committee  for scholarship  award for students in secondary schools to tertiary institutions. 

Also speaking at the occasion, Prince Bunmi Medube,Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Association stated that from inception, the safety and health of members of the community has been their topmost priority. 

Also speaking, a medical practitioner, Dr.Ayodele Ademola urged members of the community to take  issues concerning  their health with all seriousness. 

Dr. Ayodele who spoke on the importance of health with emphasis  on infertility enlightened the community on what people should observe to enjoy good health.
