Power over loneliness

We want indigene of Iresaadu as LG chairman —Community

By Rasheed Olawale

A community leader, Chief Abraham Ogunmola, the Balogun Aresaadu who doubles as the chairman of the town, has appealed to the Oyo State Government to appoint an indigene of Iresaadu as the next chairman of Surulere Local Government in the state.

Chief Ogunmola made this request while speaking during an interview with Heritage Echo in Iresaadu recently.

The chairman said: “one of the problems in this town is that since the creation of this local government, government has not appointed any indigene of Iresaadu as chairman, who will believe, will know where the shoes pinch us.  We want a bonafide indigene of Iresaadu as the next chairman.

Speaking further during the interview, Chief Ogunmola listed other problems they are facing to include abandoned projects, like the Asa Dam project, poor power supply, inadequate number of schools and absence of tertiary institution in the town.

We need a modern palace for the Aresa of Iresaadu, Oba JImoh Oyeyemi Oloyede III.

Ten ways to keep your heart healthy

A healthy heart is the way to healthy living, but the frenzied modern lifestyle is taking a toll on this little muscular organ. A sedentary lifestyle, munching on junk food, alcohol, smoking, long working hours and increasing stress is making the heart more and more vulnerable.
