“If we develop concern for other people’s welfare, share other people’s suffering, and help them, ultimately we will benefit. If we think only of ourselves and forget about others, ultimately we will lose. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes.” ~ Dalai Lama,
The above quotes is what has emasculated the thoughts and actions of Hon. Busola Afolabi Ester, the Honourable Councilor, representing the good people of Ward A (Oki/Alagutan) at the current 5th legislative arm of Agbado Okeodo LCDA.

The gesture was aimed at reaching out to the people whom she believes are essential part of why she was representing their interest at the Council, “as we can see their is still a lot to be done, but we have started something remarkable which i hope as time advances it will become more elaborate” she added
Hon. Busola, who is also the majority leader of the house is the only female among the Seven Councilors in Agbadookeodo LCDA, she also uses that platform to canvasses for more electorates to go collect their PVCs as that is what would translate into votes ahead of the general elections.

Mukaila (APC party chairman in Agbadookeodo), Engr. David Oladapo Famuyiwa (Council Chairman), Mr Akinwunmi (Council’s SLG) Hon. Isaac Omorege, Hon. Shittu (APC Agbadookeodo Party Secretary) and other notable leaders of the Party.
