As Alex served in Sokoto during his NYSC, his activities and commitment to community work were exemplary and it was no surprise that it earned for him the
State NYSC Chairman's Award and a letter of commendation from the Sokoto Local Government Council. Shunning the luxury of life he went ahead to continue his commitment to community work as he
established a cottage hospital at a border town, Illela whose inhabitants had no such healthcare facility at the time. Thus, he was appreciated not only by the residents but the Police, customs and
immigration officers, and recognized by the late Alhaji Muhammadu Maccido who was later to become the Sultan of Sokoto.
ANAMBRA STATE RURAL DEV. AUTHORITY
In 1992, Dr Alex was appointed the Executive Chairman of the Anambra State Rural Development Authority where he oversaw the grading of over 157 kilometers of rural roads within two years and the reticulation of boreholes.
It was during this administration that his grassroots mobilisation became legendary; his power of conviction and hardwork became his hallmark, thus the title, "Ogbatulenyi".
ANAMBRA STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
Dr. Obiogbolu was one of founders of PDP in his state, and played a great role in ensuring the emergence of PDP at the state and Onitsha North. He was the interim State Publicity Secretary of PDP that delivered Anambra state to PDP, and was appointed the Managing Director of Anambra State Environmental Protection agency.
With no state subvention and a demoralised staff who were owed 18 months salaries in arrears, within eighteen months, ANSEPA became responsive to its social contract removing refuse and introduced the novel "Push cart" which not only provided jobs but accessed roads that were hirtherto inaccessible to ANSEPA trucks due to bad road network.
By the time he was moved to the Local Government Service Commission, staff were being paid regularly and only eight of the eighteen months salaries were still in arreas.
He halted the activities of the notorious "Towing units" and received commendations for his management of the agancy.
LOCAL GOVERNMENT SERVICE
He was later to serve as Executive Chairman, Anambra State Local Government Service Commission where he once again distinguished himself and won many admirers.
His administration was able to recruit over 3,000 workers into the local government system and halted the hitherto syndrome of owing workers' salaries.
Thus by 2002, when the entire state workforce embarked upon an industrial strike action, the Local Government system was the only arm that failed to join the strike.
His administration computerised the nominal roll, streamlining and publishing the scheme of service, rules and regulations as well as instilling discipline amongst the cadres.
OTHER ADHOC ROLES:
Apart from serving in executive capacities, Dr. Obiogbolu has also served on adhoc committees such as Ozomagala Materials Traders association- Panel of Enquiry, Chairman, Ochanja Market Interim Management Committee, Presidential Committee on National Assembly Elections Anambra State amongst others.
He has won numerous awards that include; Honorary Award, Unizik Collegiate Jaycees 2001,
Vocation Service Award, Rotary International District 9140, Award for most honest politician by Association for Good Governance, Anambra 2002, and Leadership Award by Students Union Government,
