to former Mayor Councillor Norman Adams on May 19, 2015
In 2015, when youths in the Royal Borough of Greenwich renovated one of the facilities in the county back in 2015, Babatola was full of praise for them, expressing his believe in giving to the society.
"The young people have worked really hard and to get to this stage is brilliant," he said. "Our children are getting to the point now where they don’t ask what their community will do for them but what are they going to do to support their community. I think it’s very inspirational and is leading by example so that the younger ones will follow them by seeing their contributions to their community."
