Ondo LG Election: Akeredolu Inaugurates ODIEC Members



Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN on Tuesday inaugurated members of the Ondo State Independent Electoral
Commission (ODIEC) and members of the Board of the Ondo State Property
Development Corporation (OSPDC). They were inaugurated at the Cocoa
Conference Hall of the Governor’s office, Alagbaka, Akure.

The Governor said his Administration is committed to bringing democratic governance to the people at the grassroot by putting in place elected representatives at the Local Government level.

Arakunrin Akeredolu charged members of the ODIEC to ensure that the
next round of elections to be conducted in the 18 Local Government Areas
of the State is free, fair and credible.

“It is possible for us
to have the leadership of a Local Government belong to a different
political party from that of the State. Our political experiences make
the possibility appear remote in this clime. It is attainable if we are
committed and sincere.”

Akeredolu pointed that the only means
through which the current democratic experiment can be deepened is
through free, fair and credible local government election.

said” The local government is guaranteed in section 7 of the 1999
constitution (as amended). It is expected to discharge its mandate to
the people in the areas of primary education, health care, recreation
and social development.”

The Governor also charged the newly
inaugurated members of the Ondo State Property Development Corporation
to contribute meaningfully to the development of the state, adding that
it is time to justify the trust reposed in them by the people and
Government of the State.
