With passion, borne out of unwavering commitment to his Oath of Office, the Executive Chairman of the "True Virgin Land", Chief Yaya Fadipe, has again initiated laudable capital-intensive projects, geared at improving the lives of indigenes and residents of Imeko Afon Local Government.

Speaking in an exclusive interview  with the Information Crew of the Local Government in his Office, the helmsman of the Local Government, emphasized that "it is only imperative of this administration under my leadership, to complement the efforts of the Executive Governor of the State, Prince Dapo Abiodun (mfr), in providing, amongst others, a conducive atmosphere for local economic growth and safeguarding the lives of its citizenry."
"The Governor has released funds to us, we therefore, must commit the fund into beneficial projects, which we have meticulously considered to be the pressing needs of our people" Chief Fadipe stated.

In order to boost economic activities and unhindered inflow and outflow of agricultural produce within the local government remote areas, the Council has commenced the grading of strategic roads for the use of the people.
