PREAMBLE: Ikorodu Town is known as a foremost community of socialites and one of the most famous Towns in Lagos State in particular and Nigeria in general.
Traditionally, the people of Ikorodu are known to have formed themselves into age-groups, Social Clubs, Associations and Societies, each operating independently for different reasons.
Now, realizing the need for unity and cohesion among the people for ultimate social and economic, collective and individual growth and the prime importance of community association in the quest for relevance and recognition in the comity of Towns and Communities, we members of various Clubs, Societies/Associations do hereby agree to form ourselves into an umbrella Association to be known as IKODASS and give unto ourselves the following constitution with the agreement that is shall be the guiding rules and regulations directing the conduct of the Association and that its provisions shall reign supreme in all matters affecting the Association.
This constitution has to be read with open eyes and with the best light that our intellect can supply and even more, with the truest and purest light which our heart and conscience can give us. It is in this light that we would encourage members to read and understand this reviewed constitution.
- Whereas at a Public General arranged by the organizing committee, it was declared to form an umbrella body to be known as the Ikorodu-Oga Development Association.
- Whereas on the 21st day of November 1992, the Organizing Committee of the Ikorodu-Oga Day staged the first ever Community Day of Ikorodu.
- And Whereas: On Saturday, the 22nd of November, 1992, HRM Oba (Dr.) S.A.A. Oyefusi-Oguntade II, the Ayangburen of Ikorodu formerly declared the Community Day – (OPEN) to be known and called “Ikorodu-Oga Day”
Now therefore; pursuant to that resolution this constitution witnesseth.
