The Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District, Senator Gbenga Ashafa on Friday, 31st August, 2018 commissioned a state of the art ICT Center/ Town hall at the Oreyo Grammar school, Ikorodu, which is located within the Lagos East Senatorial District.


The event had in attendance leaders of the All Progressives Congress in the district, including Otunba Asipa Kaoli (APC Lagos East Vice Chairman) His Excellency, Prince Abiodun Ogunleye ( Former Deputy Governor, Lagos State), Asiwaju Olorunfunmi Bashorun ( Former Secretary to the Government OF Lagos State), Alhaja Ramota Bankole ( APC Lagos State Welfare Officer) and Hon. Nurudeen Solaja (Member of Lagos State House of Assembly Ikorodu Constituency II).

Also in attendance was His Royal Majesty, the Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oba Kabiru Adewale Shotobi , who led a delegation of other Traditional rulers including HRM Oba Abdulsemiu Kasoli ( Adegbowora of Igbogbo), HRM Oba Richard (Onibeshe of Ibeshe Land), HRM Oba Akeem Adeoriyemi (Obateru of Egbin) to grace the occasion.

Ashafa seized the occasion to thank the people of Ikorodu for their unflinching support over the years, stating that he remained committed to continuing with the legacy of effective representation which has already been established in the district. In his words, Ashafa stated that "I am overwhelmed by the show of support that I have received from the good people of Ikorodu over the years and by your esteemed presence here today. I am indeed grateful. I promise you that I remain committed to rendering effective representation to the good people of Ikorodu and the entire Lagos East in the Senate."
 
While delivering his address, Ashafa highlighted the importance of education and Information Technology in the world, stating that "Education is priceless, but what is even more inestimable is handing over a valuable skill set, which is relevant to the development of the incumbent young generation. A skill set that can distinguish them and set them apart for greater glory than ours.

All over the world, there is no longer any doubt about the fact that the way to go is information technology. The world is moving at a fast pace, change as they say remains the only constant thing in life. If we have nay responsibility, it is the fact that we must at least change in line with the times and at best ahead of our reality."

As he concluded, Ashafa stressed the need for young people in Ikorodu to make maximum use of the facilities provided in the ICT Center to develop themselves and the community. In bis words "From silicon valley in the United Sates of America to Mumbai in India, youngsters are doing amazing things with the development of tech start ups. Multi-million dollar Companies are being established in bedrooms and garages creating contemporary online solutions that interfere with our common humanity. In Lagos state, amazing things are being done in the tech hub in Yaba. The questions therefore become; why not in Lagos East, why not Ikorodu?"

  1. Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!.
    Hi everyone,
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital,relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact.
