Ondo: “What my administration will do to new 33 LCDA”



Ondo State Governor, Hon. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa has disclosed that his administration does not have plans to abolish the recently created Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the state.

This was revealed by
Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Aiyedatiwa on Monday.

According to Aiyedatiwa, the government will soon constitute transition committees for the 18 Local Government Areas and 33 Local Council Development Areas ahead of the coming local government elections in the State.

He stated this during a meeting with the former members of Caretaker Committees of the LGAs and LCDAs at the Governor’s Office in Akure.

The Governor explained that the creation of the LCDAs is one of the legacies of the late former Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, which must be preserved.

While addressing the 255 former appointees, Aiyedatiwa explained that the case instituted in court by the opposition party and subsequent court injunction had prevented their inauguration and assumption of office, adding that efforts were being intensified to resolve the court case through a political solution which has been granted by the court.

He further noted that once the case is finally withdrawn from the court, all the errors made in the composition of the list of the appointees would be corrected and transition committees will be inaugurated, urging the former appointees to demonstrate more commitment to the party within their respective local government areas.

In his word, “It is important for us to come together as one big family for the progress of the APC and the development of our State,” he said.

However, the State APC Chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, echoed the governor’s words of unity in the party, commending the Governor for the interface with the party members.

_____Hon. Olaniyi Gbenga and Mrs. Funke Kumuyi, who spoke on behalf of the former appointees, thanked the Governor the interface and pledged their loyalty and support for his administration.
