Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in next month’s governorship election in Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has said that he won’t scrap local council development areas created by the administration of outgoing Governor Abiola Ajimobi.

Makinde, however, assured that “We will compel the local government to function effectively and functionally within the constitutional framework.

He spoke while addressing representatives of Bodija Estate Residents’ Association (BERA) at Pentonrise Building, Housing Estate, Bodija, Ibadan.


According to him, “Our administration will not be one sitting down in Ibadan and feast of allocation of the local governments. Just as I have promised not to cancel the LCDA created by the current administration but we will make it functional.

“If you go the two LCDA’s created from Ido local government, they don’t come not because of anything, the allocation would have been shared in Ibadan while they come here with only sign post to show as identity.

“But local government is a tier of government that should be autonomous and do what is lined up for it according to the constitution of this country, but I promise you that the next government in this state will ensure that so many things that is eluding the people at the grassroots will be catered for at that level.

“In our administration, they will have money to do all these because we won’t halve their allocation in Ibadan and give them peanuts to run the government at the local level.”
