The Bariga Council Chairman mean different things to different people, depending on the prism from which he is being considered. To some people, Honourable Alabi Kolade David is a father figure. To some others, he’s Transformer of Bariga & its environment, promoter of good governance, a mentor, a leader, a technocrat, a grassroot manager, team player and to some he's a dream actualiser, true. And yet, to some others, he’s the strict man of integrity, whose focus remain to bridge the gap between dream and reality in achieving a better community and Bariga of our pride, very correct.

Sometime in the early days of the administration, Honourable Alabi Kolade indicated that he had come to run an all inclusive government where everyone and anyone will have a say and his/her opinion well attended to in transforming Bariga Local Council. Huge numbers of resident/ associates believe outrightly on the transformation agenda, it took few 6 months to believe in the simple agenda while a little 365 days in office to believe Alabi Kolade led Government has not come to play with respect to his vision for Bariga. The beauty story of present is everybody and anybody has believe that indeed the transformation man has come to rescue Bariga from the old status to the new status of total development a tour around the community will be a lucid evidence.

To mention one out of the numerous awesome steps the Council Chairman has taken is advocating and implementing the sustainable development goal from Goal 1 till Goal 17 in favour of the community others is story for another day. However, it was clear that AKD never joke with any sector starting from Health, Education, Infrastructure, Capacity building among others to be discussed much more later.
