Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State, has signed a bill into law establishing 33 Local Council Development Areas around the state.
Speaker of the House of Assembly Mr. Olamide Oladiji brought the law, which had already been approved by the state House of Assembly, to the governor for his signature.
The formation of LCDAs in the state now has legal backing thanks to the governor’s decision, according to a statement released on Saturday by Chief Press Secretary Mr. Richard Olatunde.
“The creation of these LCDAs is a significant step towards achieving the goals set forth by Governor Akeredolu during his campaign and meeting the public’s desire for improved grassroots development.
In addition, this project demonstrates Governor Akeredolu’s steadfast dedication to enhancing the provision of public services because it seeks to bring governance closer to the people, which will ultimately lead to more effective and responsive services.
“Gov. Akeredolu is ready to step up his efforts to further the development of the Sunshine State, and he is committed to delivering innovative initiatives and impactful projects,” the statement said.
