The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has signed into law the bill creating 33 Local Council Development Areas in the state.
The bill, which had earlier been approved by the state House of Assembly, was presented to the governor for assent by the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Mr Olamide Oladiji.
A statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary, Mr Richard Olatunde, on Saturday, noted that the governor’s decision has provided legal support for the establishment of LCDAs in the state.
“The establishment of these LCDAs marks a substantial step towards fulfilling Governor Akeredolu’s campaign promises and addressing the aspirations of the people for enhanced grassroots development.
“Moreover, this initiative underscores Governor Akeredolu’s unwavering commitment to improving public service delivery, as it aims at bringing governance closer to the people, ultimately resulting in more responsive and efficient services.
“Governor Akeredolu remains dedicated to delivering impactful projects and innovative initiatives, just as he is poised to redouble his efforts in advancing the development of the Sunshine State,” the statement read.
