Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has disclosed that his administration will soon create Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) to promote development at the grassroots.
The governor said this on Friday in Akure while receiving the report of the Committee on Creation of Local Council Development Areas led by its Chairman, Lanke Odogiyan.
Akeredolu said that his government was determined to embark on initiatives that would accelerate all-round development at the grassroots.
The governor expressed the appreciation of the state government to the chairman and members of the committee for the thorough job done.
Akeredolu said he was aware that the task the committee undertook was not easy because of the seriousness the people attach to the issue of local government creation.
“We will look into this and make sure that in a few months, we create the LCDAs. It is usual we still subject this to other people to look at before the executive looks at it.
“The exercise would ultimately benefit the people and restore their dignity and pride as prime producers and not as incurable consumers of other people’s ideas and products,“ he said.
The governor had on March 21 constituted the committee to look into the possibility of creating LCDAs in the state.
