There is no gainsaying that our Senatorial District has witnessed tremendous infrastructural development in the year 2021, these development has placed the district to envy others and has the cynosure of all eyes. 

These were achievable through the community assistance, the unrelentless effort of our youths, and also the formidable women groups yearning for the growth of our district. 

Therefore, it is on this premise that we channeled all 2021 facilitated projects based on the requests of the beneficiary communities and towns.

It is worthy to note that, when we came on board, our tourist attractions sites were in shambles. I committed to revamping these beautiful sites for job creation and the attraction of private investors.

So far, in tourism, we have added chalets to the beautification of Eromola waterfall to complement the relaxation center constructed in the 2020 budget. In the 2020 budget, there was the grading of the road to Owu fall, to ease vehicular movement to the water fall and also there was the building of a relaxation center which will serve as a picnic center for the prospective tourists.
