a. Fish Farming: The fish ponds are reportedly now safe and well protected from erosion/flood. Efforts are being made to insure the ponds against natural disaster.
b. Construction of a Hall: The Association had started the construction of its Association Hall along Bashorun Adebisi Adesanya Road, Sagamu. This appears not be in line with what the fund given to them which is for the empowerment of their members is meant for.
c. Empowerment Programme: The empowerment programme of the Association is a yearly recurrent expenditure and is on course.
d. Yearly Financial Reward: It is noted that a yearly financial reward initiative put in place by the Association which provides proportional financial reward to every member in accordance with his/her sitting contribution at every meeting. This is contrary to the policy of Lafarge which does not allow any financial reward to be given to their members. The Royal Fathers are looking into how to correct this anomaly.
