Sunday morning at Ibeshe Island of Oriade LCDA, Amuwo Odofin; It was all gloomy, in what used to be an ecstatic environment with no signs of celebration in the spirit of Eid el Adha; when the LAGFERRY Team paid a condolence visit to the bereaved family, particularly the OVORI OF IBESHE KINGDOM – HRM Oba Gausu Alani Rasaki; Chairman Oriade LCDA, Hon. (Chief) Mrs. Ramotallahi Akinlola-Hassan and CHAIRMAN OF LAGOS BOAT OPERATORS – Mr. Lawal Babatunde.

On Friday evening, the eve of Sallah, a local boat with 19 passengers on board capsized at Mazamaza end of Mile 2 Inland Waterway channel, with no survivor!

Our Team used the solemn period to donate LIFEJACKETS for the use of the residents of the community.

We also assured the community and other riverine areas of Lagos State of the genuine commitment of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to the well being of the riverine populace, through steady investments in Waterfront Infrastructures, Modern Jetty Construction, Channelization & Dredging, Strengthening of the Regulatory Agency Oversight Functions – LASWA, Search and Rescue Facilities including a Floating Clinic Water Ambulance, Navigational Aids & Safety Control Center, and very importantly, the acquisition of locally built Ultra-Modern Boats for Commercial Operations of Lagos Ferry Services and the Local Boat Operators through collaboration with the private sector.

These deliberate actions of all-inclusive Boat Reform will further engender the full realization of the Multi-Modal Transportation System in the State with functional alternatives but interconnected Road, Rail and Water Transport Modes.

Mobility systems will be enhanced, Enabling Commerce and Promoting Tourism.

The government of Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu places premium value on the life of every Lagosian and will continue to make living, playing and working in Lagos easier, convenient and comfortable as security of lives & properties and welfare of the people remains its priority.

We pray for peaceful repose of the departed souls and comfort for the bereaved family, amen.

The Councillor, Ward D, Amuwo Odofin LGA , Hon Hammed Olanrewaju Mohamed would like to wish all residents and businesses in Ward C a very Happy New Year.

As we begin a New Year we tend to reflect on the past year and look ahead to the New Year and achieving our resolutions.

Since being elected Councillor, I have had the opportunity to meet with many local individuals, groups and organisations across the Council area who all work at a grassroots level for the benefit of their whole community.

We will also have the first ever Youth Council meeting where local young people will represent the views of their peers and make decisions that will impact on this age group.

As a resident we know that Amuwo Odofin LGA has an ever increasing population, which brings a wealth of talent, creativity and high skill levels to the local economy.

PUSH NEWS 24 INTERNATIONAL : December 30th, 2021

A grassroot pressure group known as Amuwo Odofin Liberation Project has come out with a stern warning for political parties in what it describes as “No To Impossition‘ of candidates by political parties based in Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency as Nigeria prepares for the 2023 general elections.

Concerned about the situation where popular candidates were forced on the people, the group through its media unit lamented what happened in the 2019 House of Representatives and House of Assembly primaries where candidates in one of the leading political parties were imposed on Amuwo Odofin Community – a situation which has led to the abysmal performances of such persons. The era of political paymasters and highest bidder will no longer be accepted if we must improve in our democratic experience.

Push News can confirm that as it is mobilisation is ongoing across all political parties and group to ensure any form of imposition is resisted by the people.

A copy of the release is circulated to the media as below.


The Amuwo Odofin Liberation Project will be putting out an independent analysis and narratives about the current elected Representatives at both the Lagos State House of Assembly and Federal House of Representatives as we progress into another election cycle starting from 2022. 
We would also be having strategic alliances with the Civil Society Organizations both within and outside the constituency towards ensuring that no candidate is imposed on the electorates in any of the registered political parties. The peoples will/votes must determine the candidates of the respective political parties that will be participating in the 2023 general elections in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area. 

Furthermore, we will be exposing the chronic misrepresentation and abysmal performances of current representatives for the people to adjudge their representation over the years. 
The Liberation of Amuwo Odofin is beyond anybody’s selfish interest and not open to negotiation.

Amuwo Odofin must be liberated from selfish aggrandizement and chronic misrepresentation.
We want to sound a note of warning  to those who have been empowered one or the other to cause mayhem in the community because of any politician selfish interest. In your own interest collect your empowerment and remain calm otherwise you will be left to suffer the consequences of your actions.

This is to also wish everyone a fulfilling and very rewarding New year devoid of any *sakamaje*.
