Accolades have been trooping in for the two – term Council Chairman of the Ijede Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Ikorodu Division, Lagos State, Southwest, Nigeria, Hon. (Prince) Saheed Hassan Adefarasin as he clocked 60 years of age today.
The chieftain of the APC served as a state legislator for two term, representing the Ikorodu Constituency II between 1999 and 2007, after which he served as the Council Chairman of Ijede LCDA, also for two terms.
