Ogun State House of Assembly has asked management of Quarry Company being operated by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation Limited (CCECC), to provide  social amenities as  Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects for its host Communities.

The Speaker of the house, Right Honourable Olakunle Oluomo directed the House Committee On Industry, Trade and Investment to engage the management of the Quarry company to  and the youth in the host communities to ensure the implementation of the Corporate Social Responsibility projects
Oluomo made the call during plenary in Abeokuta, following the Deputy Speaker, Dare Kadiri's   complaint, accusing CCESS of the negligenting its host communities.

Kadiri noted that the company had refused to put up any corporate social responsibility project for the benefits of the host communities.

He lamented that the company had continued to cause damage to roads within the area due to the weight of its heavy duty vehicles.

Kadiri however commended  Governor Abiodun for the reconstruction of Igan road, debunking rumour in some quarters that the State Government ordered the stoppage of the construction 

He explained that govenment only requested from the House of Representatives member, Hon. Abdel-Majid  Adekoya who initiated the project to submit the structural designs of the roads for verification and assessment in line with the stipulated standards.

The Deputy Speaker listed  the roads which surface were already excavated for construction by Hon. Adekoya, which he failed to complete to include Fidigbade, Isamuro, Abobi and Ayegbami roads.

Kadiri enjoined the Federal lawmaker to ensure that all roads he had opened up were fixed, just as he called on him to follow due process on the reconstruction of Igan road.

Responding, the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo tasked the member representing Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency,Hon. Abdel-Majid Adekoya to engage necessary government agencies with a view to following due process in the process of implementation of intervention/ development projects, especially road construction and drainages in the communities within his constituency.

Oluomo, threw the challenge while responding to the submissions of his Deputy, Oludare Kadiri under Personal Explanation during today's plenary held at the Assembly Complex, Oke- Mosan, Abeokuta, explaining that the present administration under the leadership of Prince Dapo Abiodun remained committed to accommodating collaborative efforts that would complement its developmental programmes across the State. 

The Speaker noted that the Federal lawmaker was expected to liaise with the State Government through the State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure on modalities and construction specifications for the smooth construction of standard roads to aid human and vehicular movements.
