A development expert, Ayo Aluko-Oluokun, has advised Nigerians to vote out of office, politicians that do not fulfill their campaign promises. The call was made by Aluko-Oluokun during the public presentation of community development charters for Iyagbe, Abule Ado and Itu Agan communities of Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State by the International Press Centre (IPC) in conjunction with UKAID/DFID and ACTIONAID under the project, Strengthening Citizens Engagement.

He also advised the communities that the collective interest is more important than individual needs and that communities should come together to demand for what it needs from government as against them getting individual reward that will eventually amount to nothing.

He added that DFID is also ready to advise and support them on how to get their needs from government.
