Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Omi-Adio Dil’a, in a giant stride on Saturday 27th January 2018 during the environmental sanitation, designed two (2) standard Zebra Crossings signs each to the right and left of Abidogun Junction, Off Abeokuta Expressway, Omi-Adio, Ibadan.
The need for such road signs was to ameliorate the sufferings and huddles of pedestrians, school children, market women and other road users while crossing the ever busy highway.
According to a District Representative, the guarantee of human safety on the highways is, no doubt, one of the indices of modern development. It is therefore germane that these roads need to be planned putting into considerations the safety of all categories of users.
In his speech, Officer A.A. Usman, the Head of Operation, Federal Road Safety Corps, Ido Unit Command, who led other four (4) officers to offer the necessary backing as promised by the Unit Commander during our recent courtesy visit, showered commendation on Ahmadi Muslim Youths for setting the pace and lamented that the government and the society should have a way of rewarding this selfless and community development service.
He went further to state that his office had conceived the idea for long but they were not equipped with the necessary resources.
Hon. Mahmud Olasunkanmi, the Supervisor for works, Omi-Apata Local Council Development Authority (L.C.D.A) was present during the project execution owing to the approval duly sorted from the Local Council.
The project received lots of commendations and prayers. Twenty seven (27) members of the Majlis participated in the two (2) hours exercise as about 100 Ahmadiyya tracts were also distributed during the exercise.
