The legislative chamber of Ikorodu North LCDA comes alive today as the Executive Chairman of the council, Builder Deola Banjo led management members, ward chairmen, and other stakeholders in Ikorodu North LCDA to observe a special plenary session in honour of Honourable Babajimi Benson’s 50th birthday celebration.
The historic event was held in a convivial atmosphere as everyone present was full of smiles and had so much to say about the “poster boy” of Ikorodu division.
The event reached its peak when Builder Banjo called JB via video call thereby bringing the celebrant into the whole activities mapped out to celebrate him. JB was made to conduct the toast for the cutting of the cake.
The Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Councillors, and other stakeholders present seized the opportunity to extol the qualities of JB in their own words while JB watched with keen interest.
When it was the turn of JB to react to the gesture, he said “I am indeed very emotional right now such that I do not know how to thank you all enough especially the Chairman who has put together this idea with his Councillors in my honour. I am indeed very appreciative of your kind gesture and I dare say Ikorodu North threw the most pleasant surprise for me this year. He added.
The camaraderie continued after JB dropped the video call with the cutting of the cake, popping of champagne and exchange of pleasantries.
