PDP slams Ondo gov over appointment of 33 LCDA transition committees

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ondo State chapter, has tackled Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa for constituting transition committees for the newly created 33 LCDAs in the state. While describing the move by the governor as an act of lawlessness, the opposition party urged the governor to stop flouting the law. An Ondo State High Court had a few weeks ago declared the creation of the LCDAs null and void. In a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Kennedy Peretei, the party disclosed that with the judgement, the appointment of the committees does not exist. Peretei said: “Ondo State Governor, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, in flagrant disrespect for an Ondo State High Court judgement, has appointed Transition Committees for 18 local government areas and outlawed 33 local council development areas. “On Thursday, June 20, 2024, Hon. Justice A.O. Adebusuoye pronounced the 33 LCDAs created by the Rotimi Akeredolu administration as inchoate and unlawfully created. “The Court held that the Local Government Creation Law 2023 was unconstitutional, illegal, null, and void. “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 post PDP slams Ondo gov over appointment of 33 LCDA transition committees appeared first on Guardian Nigeria News.
