Hon. Ayodeji Joseph (Former Chairman of Apapa LG & Former Member of the House of Representatives) is a man that politicians and other elites in our society need to emulate. This is because the man is a leader; he is always ready to serve his people whenever he is given an opportunity. His past leadership positions were used to meet the needs of his people in Apapa LG and he extended it to other parts of Lagos State.
During Hon. Ayodeji Joseph’s tenure in office, he authoritatively allocated values in his constituency, in terms of Jobs, Empowerment among others. This made him to be a man that is being celebrated till date. His contribution to Youth Development in Lagos State is highly commendable and should be emulated. This man has been contributing to the development of Sports in Lagos State and the records speak for him. For instance, he contributed greatly to the development of Grassroots Football in Lagos State, by catering for the welfare of so many youth that want to become a professional footballer. Through this generous act, he successfully removed so many youth from the streets in Lagos State and made them to have a dream, a purpose and a life. Today, most of these guys are in Europe, living their dreams. One of them from Surulere is currently the best player of Portugues League (3rd Division 2019/2020 Season). May Almighty God Bless Him.
