Barely 24 hours that Comrade Olusesan Daini, Chairman of Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA assumes office to begin the executive work, it was to his greatest dismay that he was visited by fake LTV Crews with the pretence of granting him interview before executing their ulterior motive, as gathered by Igbogbo/Bayeku Info Magazine on Monday 31st of July, 2017.

The alleged fake LTV Crews were seen within the Council premises granting interview to two of the newly elected councillors, Mathew Arowolo and Monsuru Kolejo. Shortly after their fictitious interview, they proceeded to the Chairman's office who suspected them to be fake while they were trying to cajole him. He did not hesitate to quickly alert the Security operatives who swung into action immediately and began to quiz them.

Furthermore, when they were ransacked, items such as 8 Sim Cards, toothpaste and toothbrushes, a list containing the phone numbers and names of top politicians and some other items were found in their bag.

When speaking with Igbogbo/Bayeku Info Magazine, Chairman admits that they almost cajole him to follow them to Ibeshe where family of five was brutally murdered  by Badoo, and to the extent of anticipating to keep his company to the scene. Perhaps, this could be an attempt to kidnap him, he stated.

No sooner than later, the angry mob that gathered was about to effect jungle justice on them before the Chairman's intervention who prevented them from taking laws into their hands but asked the Security operatives to take them away for further interrogation.

As at the time of filing this report, the culprits, Mr Olaolu Owoeye from Mowe Ibafo and his partner in crime, Mr Gbenga from Somolu were in the Police Cell for further questioning.

I implore everyone to welcome the olive hands extended by this administration. We have done lots of politics as required; now is the time to settle down for real time development in the interest of our people.

On the table for our priorities are Agriculture, Tourism, Education, Health, Environment, Security, women and youth development. Also in the front burner are ICT, employment, human capacity development and infrastructural development. However, we will be focused at ensuring even distribution of opportunities and dividends where everyone is happy about developments in our community. We will run a government that will be felt by everyone irrespective of tribe, religious affiliation, gender and political divides.

The tasks of taking our council to the next level cannot be done alone and I’m delighted that I have an enviable team of an amiable Vice Chairman and Councilors coupled with productive workforce at the council secretariat that I have had the opportunity to work with while I served as Supervisor for Agric, Rural Development, Mineral Resource, Youth and Sports in 2012.

I want to thank most sincerely my great party for giving me this platform to aspire. I thank my team who ran sleepless nights in the rigorous campaign exercise. I want to thank all party and community leaders, various groups, women, youth, artisans, professionals and religious organisations. Specially, I thank the Kabiyesi's ,Adeboruwa of Igbogbo Kingdom, Olubeshe of Ibeshe Land and entire traditional institutions of our land. I thank my ardent supporters, well-wishers, the electorate who dared the heavy rain to cast their votes for us. My special appreciation goes to my friends, associates and family for their supports and cooperation.  Above all I want to thank the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end of the universe, the Mighty God for seeing us through and giving us the victory He assured us long before the election took place. He is a God that never fails.

Once again, I thank you all for making this happen. Together, we can revamp hope for our people and make our community a pride of place for all.
