He has proven that he is from a good home and that was what he brought into politics. We have seen other councillors who came before him and would rather invest their money in women but see what Ay has done today. No doubt the youths are the future of Ikeja and people like Ay have continued to positively show that the future is bright.”

The Leader of the Parliamentary arm of Ikeja Local Government, Hon. Adebowale Adetoro also described Adenuga who is his deputy as one of the shining lights of the parliament. He hailed him for being a team player who also heeds to advice.

He narrated an incident where he was passing through the community with a friend and they saw people carrying huge containers in search of water. He described how the friend challenged him into seeking a solution and even supported him financially to see that the project sees the light of day.
