The education-oriented project which brought tremendous joy to the good people of Ikorodu was handed over to Ikorodu local government for adequate care and enhanced maintenance for purpose of sustainability.
With religious leaders, LGEA reps, councillors, teachers, parents and students present, the distinguished senator (Tokunbo Abiru) warmly received by the chairman of Ikorodu local government (Hon Wasiu Adesina) attributed the project completion to the recommendation made by the council boss.
In his statement “When I came into office, and it was time to tilt my support towards the local government, Hon Wasiu Adesina was the first person I placed a call to. And when I asked him what area the local government would need my support, He strongly recommended I channel my capacity to building Aga Primary School in Ikorodu local government”
“I did my primary and secondary school education in public schools before furthering my higher learning at the Lagos state university (Unilag), that means I am mostly a product of public institutions to understand the essence of executing a project of this nature. It got me to where I am today as a force to reckon with both in the public and private sector”
“What we did within the space of 3 weeks is to create a conducive atmosphere for our children to learn and grow academically by building the structures up to standard. They’ll now be happy and excited to wake up in the morning and race to school to learn without any worries. Am also certain that Adesina’s administration with which we’re handing over this project will ensure to keep it maintained” Senator Tokunbo Abiru added
Hon Wasiu Adesina in his remarks of gratitude applauded Senator Tokunbo Abiru for living up to expectations in collaborating with the local government to uplift the grass-root.

His performance is highly commendable“
“Many parents initially thought that giving formal education to their children or wards was wastage of time before, especially female children who were majorly discouraged but now they appreciate the values and benefits of their children becoming doctors, engineers, technocrats, lecturers, professors, bankers, accountants etc, which cannot be achieved without being certified through good and standard education”
