The CEO of OlaWestern Concrete, Hon. Ola Folorunsho aka OlaWestern has advised residents of Amuwo Odofin Constituency I, Lagos State to abide by their New Year’s resolutions.

A New Year’s resolution is a personal commitments in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behaviour, in order to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life.

In most cases people jettison their resolutions and return to their old ways at times before January runs out.

OlaWestern urged his constituents to eschew this pattern saying people must improve themselves to engender a better society in his New Year’s message released and personally signed by him.

“The hour has come for most of us to make resolutions that often are fleeting. Like they say it is easier said than done. We must buck this ugly trend of making resolutions that are mostly given up soon after they were made. No country gets better just by her citizenry’s mere wishes.

“The only ace we can all play is to set realistic resolutions and stick to them. The change we all desire about Nigeria, starts with us. We must all become agents of change,” the 2013 Amuwo Odofin House of Assembly aspirant appealed.

While also thanking God OlaWestern said …

“I join you the good people of Amuwo-Odofin Constituency 1 in giving thanks to God for the privilege to see a new year. To him be the glory and honour, Amen.

I want to enjoin us to hit the ground running, starting with identifying those things you plan to achieve then committing yourself to its manifestation.

The year is young, the sky is blue, Spread your wings and fly”

Let me seize the opportunity to also ask us to remain responsible, obey all Covid-19 safety protocols.”

He implored electorates in Amuwo Odofin to start the year with a focus on the forthcoming general election and vote for credible leaders at the APC National Convention, saying only this way the Nigeria of their dream would come to pass.
