Indigenes of Etinan Local Government Area Comunity in Lagos have expressed their readiness to get closer to their local government administration at home, contribute and be part of development.
President of the community, Elder Maurice Isaac, made their position known in his address at the end of year/ new year get-together of the community held at the Lagos Chapter Secretariat of Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio, Ojuelegba, Surulere, Lagos, recently.
He said some of the indigenes of the council area in Diaspora, Lagos in particular, have started making arrangement to re-locate home as a result of fast rate of development in the area, as Lagos on a daily basis was becoming more expensive and stressful to live in.
The community leader who commended the council boss, Mr Cletus Ekpo, and other leaders of thought in the council area for their collective developmental drive said when some of them return, they would contribute their quota in terms of wealth of experience in their different disciplines to the general development of the council area and state.
He promised to rebrand the community in Lagos and appealed to all leaders at all levels in the council area to do their best while in office and carry everyone along in their administration.
He thanked the immediate-past president of the community, Comrade Imo Friday, whom he described as a good man and jolly fellow for setting the pace, urging him and others to remain committed to community affairs.
"Coming together at a time of the year as indigenes of Etinan Local Government Area Community in Lagos is a clear indication of our determination to live, work and walk together for a common developmental goal. As some of us begin to think home, contribute and be part of development, we want our government, especially at grass roots, to draw indigenes closerâ€, Isaac stressed.
