The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has vowed to bring positive change in the Local Government system of the state if re-elected in the governorship elections scheduled for October 10.
While addressing during a campaign rally at Ose local government area on Thursday, September 24, 2020, the governor promised to create more local government councils. Akeredolu noted that Imeri, Idogun, Afon, and Idoani will become a separate local government from the present Ose while addressing the Alani of Idoani, Oba Olufemi Olutiye, and his chiefs.
“I have traveled to virtually all major countries in the world. I have been to Britain, Spain, the United States of America and Canada, Ireland, India, Germany, France, and other western and semi-western countries.
“I saw their local government system; they’re very organised and planned to fast track development. By the grace of God, I will join other progressives to bring about positive change to the local government system in Nigeria,” said Akeredolu.
The governor also added that “we will continue to struggle and achieve nothing if we do not strengthen our local government system.
“The major development is in the grassroots. By the grace of God, I will create another local government from Ose comprising Idoani, Idogun, Afon, and Imeri, to be named Ireakari Local Council, if you all vote for me to return to the office on October 10.”
