Ekiti begins move to create LCDAs


The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi,  has inaugurated a 13-member committee to critically examine and recommend to the government the viability and economic sustainability of the planned creation of Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) from the existing 16 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in State.

Governor Fayemi had hinted on the plan to create new LCDAs while delivering his State of the State address at the State Assembly last month.

Speaking during the inauguration ceremony at the State Executive Council Chamber, Governor’s office in Ado Ekiti yesterday,  Fayemi said the move was in a bid to bring government nearer to the people and stimulate rapid development in the rural areas in line with his administration’s five-pillar development agenda.

He noted that agitations for the creation of new LCDAs continued to top the list of demands in the various consultative meetings held with stakeholders across communities in the State since the inception of his administration.

He added that the creation of the LCDAs was in demonstration of his administration commitment to justice, fair-play and response to the yearnings of the people for increase and adequate representation at all levels of governance.
