Friendship is sweet when both parties support each other on growth and development. Friendship becomes sour when the other party is inimical to your set goals and objectives.
Those were the words of the Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin LGA, Engr. Valentine Buraimoh while addressing leaders of different Unions at the Council secretariat, Festac Town, Lagos.
The Council Chief noted that all party involved in revenue generation should brace up for better results, adding that government is not run based on friendship.
” It is obvious that if we want good things to happen and want government to stand up to its responsibilities, then we must play our role in ensuring that levies and rates are paid and remitted to the Council purse, ” he added.
Engr. Buraimoh further stated that the different Unions should double their efforts in order to increase the Internally Generated Revenue(IGR) of the Council, so as to fast track development and socio-economic welfare of the governed.
The Head of Administration, Mr. Adedeko and the Council Treasurer, Mrs Olusola Gbesan tasked the Union leaders to be proactive and be ready for changes next year.
