In their remarks, Chairmen Ado North, West, Central LCDAs and Ado LGA, Hon. Yomi Oso, Hon. Taye Alagba, Engnr. Toyin Ojo and Chief Bosun Osaloni respectively,a Governor Oyebanji for the fatherly role played in ensuring more development in their respective Council Areas.

They applauded the Governor for separate payments of ecological funds to Council Chairmen which they said has allowed for a remarkable impact and turnaround of communities hitherto afflicted with ecological problems.

Speaking on behalf of the Communities Chairmen, Elder Gboyega Abegunde, eulogized and appreciated Governor Oyebanji for fulfilling his electioneering campaign promise of holding a regular meeting with Landlords Associations in Ado-Ekiti .
