  1. This is a good initiatives from Hon. Jide Jimoh administration. Pls, there should be thourough vigilance on the northernern people in yaba by ur committee to avert boko haram bombing act. Mean hausa people were to many in yaba to the extent of dominating yorubas which could cause havoc. Also, the way they ride okada are deadly which need attention. Pls, tell police to watch them well and restrict them in some places in yaba.

    The confidence of electing you as a leader remain intact. Safety and security is a major and fundamental issues that determine foreign investors chances in a country. An economy that lack security is porous to danger and detorating. I believe this will go a long way for YABA residents.
