He urged politicians from the area to emulate the good virtues of Hon Elemide ,who he said, “Is currently making Odeda proud, through good representations in the state House Assembly.
“You have done well for us” Oba Olorunisola told Hon Elemide as he moved forward to commission the reconstructed Open market stalls.
