Ondo State governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has come out to hail the conduct of the local government poll in the state.
Oluwarotimi Akeredolu recently revealed that the exercise was a huge success and he is delighted.
According to him, the turnout for the election was impressive, but it can surely be better.
He added that the local government is still the most important tier of government since it is the closest to the people and will guarantee better delivery of the dividends of democracy.
His words, “It is imperative by the constitution that we have democratically elected government at all levels.
”What we are doing is not extraordinary, but it is constitutional and I am one of those that want it.
”By the grace of God, we pray we will come back and these set of elected chairmen and councillors will be the first that will spend their three years completely”.
“I have made my case for local government autonomy; since I came in, I have not touched local government money, they do their meetings and share their money.”
