• He reported on the various motions on pressing issues moved by him, such as calling the attention of the state government to: the state of our roads; the need for proper boundary demarcation between Ogun and Lagos States to prevent encroachment; the need to take over schools built and being sponsored by the communities that met the established standard; calling for regular attention to the problem of water hyacinth or vegetation blocking a section of Ogun rivers; calling on INEC to create sub registration across the State Constituencies to ease Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) process; calling on State Government to establish customary and magistrate courts across all the 26 State Constituencies for ease of administration of justice; calling on the State Government to encourage all home owners in the state through their Community Associations to construct drainage in front of their houses;

• He noted his efforts during attempted house demolitions by Lagos Water Corporation in respect of Adiyan Water pipelines project where over 600 houses were planned for demolition around Oke-Aro and Akute communities and how through the motion raised by him at the plenary of OGHA, the planned demolitions were halted. The authority concerned in Ogun and Lagos were brought into a negotiation table with the representative of the affected communities. With this efforts, less than 54 houses were affected eventually as against the over six hundred that were originally marked for demolition. The owners of the affected houses  have been fully compensated.

• The same goes during the demolition quit notice served by LAMATA on some properties at Agbado Opeilu and Itoki areas over the ongoing LRMT Redline and Associated Infrastructure Project embarked upon by Lagos State. He recalled resolutions moved by him at OGHA and passed by the whole house and transmitted to the Governor which checked the excesses of the demolition bodies, brought them to a round table meeting with the affected communities and ensured adequate compensation to the affected individuals.

• Hon GOCO equally noted his recent intervention on the floor of the house on illegal enforcement of court judgment on land matters affecting many communities at Sunren Ward 9 and the need to protect law and order in the area. This has led to the house resolution urging the Governor to constitute a special task force on land grabbing which he believed will address the menace.

• His loyalty to the party was reiterated through regular engagements and donations upon request for party needs. He mentioned his donation of seats to the APC party meeting place at Sunren, Ward 9, Computer system, Modem and Printer to the party at the local government level to boost INEC CVR registration exercise as well as regular payment of ten percent of his salary to the party to aid its administration.

• He equally noted how he has been consistent in maintaining good harmonious working relationship with the  Governor and other legislative colleagues including the Rt Hon Speaker in order not to have his Constituents denied of the Governor's largesse.

• He added that the 3 ongoing roads reconstruction by the State Governor with 2 domicile in IFO 2, Osoba road at Agbado and Denro-Ishashi road at Akute was part of his joint efforts while on several occasions on the floor of the house, he raised concerns of the people of IFO 2 over the deplorable conditions of our roads especially Ijoko Akute Ojodu road and he has not stopped at it until they are done.

• He charged the party leaders to support continuity as it would strengthen him to actualise more given the recognition and status usually accorded a ranking and especially a 3rd term legislator in the house. 

He assures of his continued loyalty to the party, while assuring that the plights of the people of Ifo 2 State Constituency shall remain burning at his heart always.
