PDP Slams Governor Aiyedatiwa For Setting Up Transition Committee for LCDAs, LGs

 

Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa has been called out for setting up Transition Committees for the nullified 33 Local Council Development Areas, LCDAs, and 18 local government areas.

 

The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, lashed out at him while asking him to reverse the decision.

 

The governor had in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ebenezer Adeniran, said the transition committees were to supervise the affairs of the LGs and LCDAs in the state until the conduct of local government elections.

 

According to the governor, his administration was examining concerns raised by some communities over the delineations carried out during the creation of the LCDAs with a view to making the necessary amendments.

 

Reacting, however, the Ondo PDP said Governor Aiyedatiwa disrespected the judgment of an Ondo High Court, which nullified the creation of the 33 LCDAs.

 

“Therefore, it is the height of lawlessness and impunity for Aiyedatiwa to appoint committees for LCDAs that are non-existent in the eyes of the law.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State Chapter wishes to advise the Governor to respect the laws of the land and stop embarrassing the people of the state with his actions that make us a laughing stock in the comity of civilised people,” the state PDP said.
