Governor Abiodun made this known in Ilaro at the inauguration of the Yewa People Development Council (YPDC) and end of the year reception of the Yewa Traditional Council, saying it would be a great injustice to concentrate development on a section and leave others.

Represented by his deputy, Engr.

“The inauguration is in tandem with the 'Building our Future Together' agenda, and could not have come at a better time than now. It indicates that Yewa people are poised to start the new year on a positive note”, he noted.

The Governor said the opinion of the people would always count at all times, urging public-spirited indigenes of Yewaland to join hands for the advancement of the area.

In his address, the Olu of Ilaro and Paramount Ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, called on sons and daughters of Yewaland to invest in their hometown, in order to enhance development, emphasising the need to complement the government's effort.

 “Let us face development and leave politics for the politicians.  We must see how we can galvanise and bring our children all over the world together and encourage them towards the development of Yewaland”, Oba Olugbenle said.

In his presentation, the Chairman, YPDC, Prof. Rahaman Bello, said the non- profit organisation was created to carry out activities and enforce unity among the people of Yewaland, promote effective development in all strata, as well as give optimum priority to the needs of the people in the area.
