The Executive Director of the Human Rights Monitoring Agenda (HURMA), Comrade Buna Olaitan Isiak, has sent a message of commendation and encouragement to a member of Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Emmanuel Olowo Rotimi, who represents Somolu Constituency 1 as a lawmaker.
This was following a recent step by the lawmaker to bail some residents out of a total blackout they have been experiencing for over a year, due to the faulty electrical transformer in the communities and lack of finance to get new one or correct the fault based on huge amount billed the poor residents by IKDC office.
While addressing some group of people who brought the report to the office of HURMA, Comrade Buna said “As part of our responsibility to watch closely, those that are managing people’s affairs in public offices,
It is important that we make the world to know that we don’t always condemn public office holders, but simply critic them constructively so as to ensure that they deliver on their constitutional role and mandate to the masses. We therefore should also commend them whenever they are doing good.
It is to this end that we say from all available records that Honourable Olowo Rotimi is indeed running a people friendly system of governance within the limit of his legislative capacity. We are impressed that he is always available to the general public and also eager to get himself involved in any issue that may however affect the masses. He is indeed a Comrade and we expect every other legislative member of LSHA to emulate his style of representation”.
Hon Olowo represented a check of one million naira two days ago to IKEDC Obaniko area office with representatives from the affected area in Somolu which include Olabiran; Odumuyiwa among others in the CDC.
