For years a lot of people were given pilgrimage slots to Mecca for hajj and Jerusalem too. He is a true man of the people that respects all religions.
He has also constructed high capacity boreholes with massive overhead tanks in the different locations of Oshodi, while single handedly constructing the Marcathy link lane road to ease movement and also rejuvenating the old Street lights in Banjoko community.
