The governor charged them to explore and exploit all the opportunities available to them through revenue drive, waste disposal and management, and maintenance ce of law and order to protect the lives and properties of the citizens while not resting on their oars as the eye of government in their respective jurisdictions

“I would like to congratulate the chairmen and at the same time commiserate with them because once you get there to the local government areas there would be a time it would look tiresome.

“I want to congratulate you because you are called to serve the people of the state. It is all work and service to the people. I can see smiles on your faces and that of your spouses, I know that the smiles may soon favulcanizerde away because this is a unique one that requires thinking outside the box,” Soludo said

He stated further that, “A call to public service is a platform to make the difference. Being called to serve at this time is an honour. If you look at your local government councils you will see hundreds and thousands of people who will be looking up to you for service delivery. You are chosen to change their lives for the better.”
“The call for service is to enable you to make disruptive changes that will trickle down to the local governments, wards and communities.

“You are called to make a change, disruptive changes at this time of humongous service. I know that some of you who have not been to the local government will be disappointed with the situation. You will discover enormous challenges. You may not have roads to your office, no chairs in your office even operational vehicles, but you must be determined to make the necessary changes.”

“We will not take excuses for failure. As a member of the Soludo Solution team, don’t give excuses for not succeeding, just go there and deliver.”

He maintained that the state government expect them as council executives to touch the lives of the poor village woman there, the hawkers, vulcanizers and others suffering in the various communities to have a feeling of government.

“We will have a minimum standard for the planning of our communities, we must have a standard for the construction of our roads, markets and others. People built on the water drainage and water channels to main roads, without minding the consequences on the system, that must stop and you should help government,” he stated.
