Governor Akinwumi Ambode was within the Tolu schools complex Ajegunle and immediately surrounded by a happy crowd of mostly youths.
He takes a brief from the commissioner for Works and infrastructure Engineer Ade Akinsanya on the proposed project.
The Governor in his remarks in pidgin English tells the residents who are mostly youths that now is time to fulfil one of his campaign promises to them through the provision of some basic social amenities.
He appeals to them to co-operate with the project engineers who will move to site soon.
Governor Ambode adds that once the projects are completed he will personally hand them over to the community and expects them to be guarded over jealously.
