The exercise which kicked off on Monday, 9th July 2018 at the IKODASS office at Ikorodu Town Hall witnessed a large turn-out of residents who seized the opportunity of the IKODASS one-week registration exercise to formalize their identity card registration.

In an online release, circulated earlier last week, the body disclosed that ‘The executive of IKODASS has concluded arrangements with the officials of the agency charged with that responsibility to temporarily deploy some of their staff to the IKODASS secretariat at Ikorodu town hall for one week, within which it is hoped that the registration processes for members / residents would have been  concluded’, the notice reads.
