The community of Owode Ibeshe in Igbogbo Bayeku LCDA, Lagos, is set to witness a historic event on Monday, Sept 4, 2023, as Hon. MKO Arowolo, the Councillor representing Ward C4 (Owowde – Ibeshe), will donate six blocks of classrooms, 20 chairs, and desks to the newly built Ibelefun Junior Secondary School.
The grand opening ceremony will be attended by the Joint CDA Owode Ibeshe led by Alhaji Mukthair, the school staff and students, and other dignitaries and stakeholders.
Hon. Arowolo, who is a polio survivor and a former commercial driver conductor, in a press statement he released said he was motivated by his fear of God and his love for his people to invest his personal resources in improving the education and welfare of his community.
In his words, he belonged to everybody and would continue to protect the interests of his people regardless of any disparity.
He also said he was ready to take risks and die serving the poor rather than leaving them suffering and dying as cowards.
He has been awarded the National Best Councillor for two consecutive years for his outstanding performance and achievements.
He has initiated and executed several projects for the benefit of his ward and community, such as grading of Ibeshe inner roads, construction of drainage channels, provision of free medical services, distribution of food items and cash to the needy, and empowerment of youths and women.
He is also a member of the Ikorodu Ambassadors Group, a non-governmental organization that promotes social development and empowerment in Ikorodu.
He is known for his humility, generosity, and dedication to his people. He is a role model for many young Nigerians who aspire to serve their country.
Hon Arowolo celebrates his birthday in January. He is a Capricorn according to the zodiac sign, which means he is ambitious, determined, and practical.
The Ibelefun Junior Secondary School is a brand new school that will accommodate 200 students and 11 staff members, including a principal and vice-principal.
Hon. Arowolo will also start the fencing project on Monday to further improve the school’s infrastructure.
The community of Owode Ibeshe is grateful to Hon. Arowolo for his extraordinary service and generosity.
They are looking forward to celebrating with him on Monday as he inaugurates the school and hands over the classrooms, chairs, and desks.
He is not just a councillor; he is a beacon of hope, a champion of progress, and a true servant of the people.
