Amsterdam News Sits Down with NYCHA Chair Shola Olatoye

By Nayaba Arinde, Amsterdam News, March 1, 2018

Relentless and vitriolic has been the focused assault on NYCHA in general and the city agency’s Chair and CEO Shola Olatoye in particular.

“I am solution-based,” Olatoye said in an exclusive interview this week.

This is 40 years here – you guys want solutions in four years.”
