Rain Storm Wreaks Havoc in Yaba

Many Residents of Yaba woke early in the morning on Monday 13th February 2012 looking forward to a busy day in their shops and offices. As early as 6.30 a.m, the sky was heavy with cloud and most people expected a rainy day. But in the space of one hour that the rain lasted, the sheer violence of the storm left destruction in its wake.

At Sabo Bus stop, the Unity Bank PLC Mast fell across the Commercial Avenue Road, effectively blocking Traffic. Likewise at Cooperative Bus Stop, Herbert Macaulay Street Adekunle, a giant Advert Billboard was Up-rooted falling on the Adekunle Police Station make Shift Stalls. All across Yaba Community, roofs were blown off, Electric poles up-rooted and Trees fell across roofs, Fence and Roads. More so, a big Tree fell in Ori Oke Primary Health Centre destroying Generator room.

A team of Council officials led by the Vice-Chairman, Hon Bola Lawal-Olumegbon with the Council Manager, Mr Tunde Ojikutu among others make a tour round the LCDA to see things for themselves.

    The visit made by Yaba lcda exco, councillors and management was a good one. It really shows that we have a government that is responsible.

    So the executives of our local council came out to “window shop” their duties/responsibilities and we praise them sooo much like this? What then happens when they deliver these duties, and even more so not deliver it to capacity? We will exalt them still in all glory? We are the reasons elected government officials hardly do much when in office because, compliments are thrown at them so easily at the slightest things continually when indeed our aim as active citizens is to pay our taxes and highlight to them consistently, areas they haven’t considered. We are not their congregation, we should reduce the praises and compel them to do better! They only came out to view damages and haven’t put any statement forward through this communique on plans to tackling this eyesore either with grants, freebies in renovation to homes of victims or means to educate residents more on the hazards of these climate changes and how to prepare for it. People of Yaba, these executives are arguably producing to capacity or satisfactory level, work still needs to be done, limit your praises.

    At least 4 d Exco to have deemed it fit to go round and see the extent of d damages done by the storm is an indication that they are responsive and responsibile to the plight of the masses, it is after this that all other things whether policy statement or any palliative measures to alleviate the effect on the masses could then come up. so Mr Dare there is nothing bad in giving kudos for the response of the Exco of Yaba LCDA. when last have expewrience a responsive government as we have now in Yaba in the history of grassroot governance?

  11. THIS IS JUST THE STARTING POINT IN DELIVERING GOOD GOVERNANCE TO THE PEOPLE OF YABA LCDA , ALL THOSE THAT ARE AFFECTED HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED BY THE COUNCIL TO CONTACT THEIR CDA CHAIRMAN IN THEIR VARIOUS COMMUNITIES , SINCE THE EXCO HAVE VERIFY THE EXTEND OF THE DAMAGE THE NEXT STAGE IS TO GET ON THE SPOT DAMAGE REPORT FROM COMMUNITY LEADERS , DARE YOUR REQUEST HAVE BEEN ATTENDED TO AND GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR CDA CHAIRMAN AND IF YOU DONT KNOW YOUR CDA CHAIRMAN ,KINDLY CONTACT THE CDC SEC ON 08023030396 OR 08060328201 ,HELP IS ON THE WAY FOR YABA PEOPLE

    The tmely response of Yaba LCDA leadership is indeed worthy of acknowledgement, so i give kudos to u all at the helms of affairs in Yaba LCDA. I also weant to use this avenue to say may the Almighty continue to strengthen you

  13. Emmanuel

    A proactive decision by the government, motivate the people to a world of change. Yaba LCDA management team action has really reflected a good leadership. Timing listening and responding to the affected residents is a great and welcome idea. Endeavor to ensure speedy action towards the affected areas. May GOD help you all. Amen.

  14. Dare

    @Micheal The card politicians of this new age sell to us is one which you are also playing now. If we haven’t experienced good grassroot governance it is because the good men amongst us back then, allowed such exploitation and evil triumph. This current administration promised us a lot of things and it is our responsibility as active citizens of our communities to make sure they fulfil their promises and meet their responsibilities. Public service is not a license, it is a responsibility. Public servants should celebrate their people not the other way around. There is nothing wrong to give Kudos but cheap kudos is only a catalyst for future non-challancy and laziness. Why should we applaud executives who come out to just “window shop” the jobs we VOTED them to do in the first place? Please don’t be carried away. Be valuable Micheal. Lets EXPERIENCE in full, thorough implementations to the palliatives initiated by @solomon and then, after that, we would know what route to follow.

    And @solomon, It is not “Help” is on the way for Yaba people as you so put it but, the other way round; “Duty” is to be delivered soon (hopefully) by Yaba’s LCDA administration.

  15. @DARE WHETHER U CALL IT DUTY WHILE I LABEL IT HELP OUR FOCUS SHOULD BE ON HOW WE WILL MAKE YABA A BETTER PLACE FOR US , I REALLY ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR POSITION ABOUT OUR EXPECTATION FROM PUBLIC SERVANTS THAT IS WHY I SAID YOU SHOULD CONTACT THE CDC SEC ABOUT THE COMPLAIN IN YOUR AREA ,HOPE TO HEAR FROM U SOONEST ,HELP IS ON THE WAY

  16. Emmanuel

    Friends, let us be constructive and objective in our respective views. Our collective ideas could play a significant impact in an open government like this. Togetherness, we all can build a new face of our communities.

  17. @DARE, U ar complaining that most people praises the administration which they need to stop what of other local govt that left their duties on done. If u cannot let others do!
    For this govt to rise up attending to the quest of masses they need to b acknowledge.
    U also can support the govt instead of black criticism.

    We all praises Gov. Fashola all the time for turning Lagos to a mega city, despite this include his primary responsibility. I believe same goes to Hon. Jide Jimoh, as people praise him for his outstanding performance. He deserve it. “What is good for the goose is good for the gander”…………

  20. Emmanuel

    @ Chinoye you have spoken well. It’s obvious that everything around us in Yaba is turning for good. As we praise him, a reminder note should be sent to do more for the people. Hon. Jimoh performance can’t be compromised
