I’ve no plan to scrap LCDAs — Aiyedatiwa


Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has clarified that his administration doesn’t have plans to abolish the recently created Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the state by the late former governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Aiyedatiwa said this in Akure during a meeting with the former members of the caretaker committees of the LGAs and LCDAs.

He said that 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.

According to him, the creation of the LCDAs is one of the legacies of the late former governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, which must be preserved.

The governor told the 255 former appointees that the case instituted in court by the opposition party and subsequent court injunction had prevented their inauguration and assumption of office.

According to him, efforts were being intensified to resolve the court case through a political solution that was granted by the court.

He added that once the case is finally withdrawn from the court, all the errors made in the composition of the list of the appointees would be corrected and transition committees will be inaugurated.

Aiyedatiwa urged the former appointees to demonstrate more commitment to the party within their respective local government areas.

Speaking on behalf of others, Hon. Olaniyi Gbenga and Mrs. Funke Kumuyi, thanked the Governor the interface and pledged their loyalty and support for his administration.
