Kakalistiq.com reports that members of the esteemed community development advocacy group, the Epe Division Renaissance Initiative (EDRIN), have reaffirmed their unwavering commitment to bolstering the developmental trajectory of communities across the Epe Division.

In a resounding show of dedication, professionals from diverse career paths within the public and private sectors of the Nigerian economy convened at the Epe country home of Prince Bayo Apena for the group’s end-of-year get-together and Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Speaking with this news medium, Hon. Sesan Olowa, the chairman of Ibeju-Lekki Local Government and a founding member of EDRIN, emphasized the organization’s determination to realign itself to achieve the group’s set goals, fostering prosperity in the division and its populace.

Reflecting on the group’s origins, Olowa highlighted its genesis as the EDREM and its instrumental role in addressing the challenges faced by the community. He pledged continuous participation in the group’s developmental initiatives, expressing optimism about taking it to new heights for the benefit of the people. “I am committed to always taking part in the developmental programs and projects of the group. So far, it has been repositioned, and the desire of all of us is to take it to the next level for the prosperity of our people,” he said.

Eng. Amuni Adebayo, the EDRIN Transition Committee chairman, shared his excitement about the remarkable turnout at the meeting, describing the members as amazing. Underscoring that EDRIN is more than a social club, he detailed the group’s dynamic approach and plans for a special day honoring members’ resilience and commitment throughout the year.

The gathering served as the AGM to induct new members and review the closing year’s activities and projects for the coming year, merging professionalism with social engagement to attract like-minded individuals and critical stakeholders for Epe’s development.

Adebayo revealed that, after over 20 years of existence, EDRIN dissolved its Excos after being at the helm for 5 years, signaling a renewed commitment to move the association forward. While the President and Vice President positions changed, others returned, showcasing their capacity to drive the association’s progress. He emphasized the group’s apolitical stance and unwavering focus on the development of the Epe Division.

The host of the party, Prince Bayo Apena, echoed sentiments from other speakers, urging members not to relent in their dedication towards achieving the group’s cardinal objectives. Despite notable achievements in various governance sectors, Apena stressed that there is still room for improvement and announced upcoming programs from the division. “God has been grateful to us in terms of individual growth and as a group, and despite that, there is still room for us to improve. More programs are coming from the division,” he averred.

The commendable contributions of EDRIN members stand as a testament to their resolute commitment to repositioning the division through financial and moral dedication to the growth agenda of the people. Emerging from an inspiring AGM and get-together, the group is poised to recommit and rededicate themselves to achieving their set goals for the betterment of the Epe Division.
