The Leader of the 8TH Legislative Arm of Surulere Local Government, Hon. Barakat Akande- Bakare Conducted the swearing in Ceremony for the newly elected Ward E Councillor, Hon Kazeem Bello.
A bye- election took place at Obele-Oniwaala primary school on the 27th of April, 2019 as a result of the demise of the former Councilor representing that ward, Hon. Rasaq Bello which occurred late last year.
Narrating his experience, Hon Bello said he felt being welcomed by his legislator- colleagues within the short time he was sworn- in. He said he knows he should be under some learning processes as a new legislator and promised to co-operate with his colleagues and the management of the Local Government for the betterment of all .”He has come to represent his ward and would do that with all diligence and commitment”. He said.
Hon Bello was the youth president of his community where he organized various health programmes, free G.C.E forms for indigent pupils, children parties amongst other community services through sourcing for financial assistances from notable personalities from within and outside the community. This aspect of his services to his people earned him the councillorship which he holds in high esteem.
In attendance were other members of the legislators and family members of the Councilor.
