Dear Sir,

A REQUEST FOR SOME AMENITIES NEEDED IN MY COMMUNITY

Since you assumed office about a year ago, there had been rapid development that has been experienced by the citizens of our local government, keep up the good work sir.

I use this medium to request for some amenities that are needed in my community which are: street lights, public toilet and a functional hospital.

Our roads are now good and the only facility that we need is the installation of street light. This is because my community is densely populated hence, the crime rate is high. If we have functioning street lights, it will aid the security of life and property.

There are no functioning public toilets and the ones that are available are being over stretched. They are not being maintained property. Some people do defecate all around the environment and as a result, there might be an outbreak of cholera and any other serious ailments attached to this.

We also need two or three functioning hospital because health is wealth. As you have promised us in your manifesto, that the total well-being and comfort of the people will be your top priority.

We will be very grateful if all our requests are given thoughtful consideration. Our people also want to enjoy the dividend of democracy that you party stands for.

Yours Faithfully,

Signature of Writer,

Olanrewaju Abraham.
