  • Our amiable Best Governor sir, your work done is very commendable sir but in my Village Yakoyo of Surulere LGA. Of Oyo State Sir we are lack of many things and it’s very disadvantage to our youths in my village to continue with our Education sir.
    Because ever since Oyo State is created my Village have not enjoying any amenities from both State and Local Government sir, even if they came to dig Borehole at my Yakoyo Village they always tell us that Yakoyo under ground level is full of Rock

    At this 21century in my village were still Drink stream water which even our youth and our father are digging ground before we can see water drink during dry seasons

    To my surprise both State and Local Government didn’t forget our village during any Election, with my 100% we are donating votes at large during any Elections they are being doing at Oyo State

    From example I was graduated since 2016 which till now I’m still struggling for labour work to feed my family same with all graduate that we have in my community YAKOYO

    I’m Ayinde Yusuf Kayode by name from YAKOYO Community of Surulere LGA of Oyo State

    I’m using this medium to beg our amiable Best Governor to help us look into our community YAKOYO Village
