Nigerians have been charged to offer  constructive suggestions  on how to move the nation forward.

They were also enjoined to live in peace at all times.

Those remarks were contained in the address by Governor Ibikunle Amosun  of Ogun State, delivered on his behalf by the Deputy Speaker of the state House of  Assembly, Hon Tola Banjo, at the 2012 Annual Lewu day, held at Odolewu.

Commending the Odolewu community for their loyalty, Amosun  unfolded  government  programme to improve the area to include a dual carriage  way to  facilitate socio-economic development  of the community,  expansion of its health centre as well as the establishment of a  tertiary institution, which would enhance the immense opportunities for the indigenes and their neighbours.

In his welcome address at the event, the Babalaje of Odolewu,  Senator Anthony Adefuye,  reiterated the need to invite the sons and daughters of the town to come home and  develop the community  through establishment of cottage  industries.

He invited Nigerians, at home and in  Diaspora also “to come to Macedonia and help us”. He disclosed that gone were the days when indigenes were enveloped  in  the fear of being killed by “witches and wizards”.

Adefuye assured the community, associates and other well wishers of his continued loyalty and dogged strides in returning the community to her enviable pride.
