PDP Urges Aregbesola Not To Create Additional 39 LGA’s

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has urged the Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola to cease plans of creating 39 new local council development areas.

This disclosure was made known in a statement issued by Director of Media and Strategy in Osun State, Diran Odeyemi, in Osun.

The statement said, ”The reality in Osun calls for serious planning because the economy of the state now or even in near future cannot cope with 69 local government councils when the state could not generate fund to develop the present councils”.

”This is a poorly conceived idea lacking the understanding and needs of the people of Osun State and its proposed execution at this time shows that governor Aregbesola has lost ideas of what is next in the state.

”The rest of the country must be astonished about a governor that has not been able to fulfill its financial obligations to the workforce and plunge the state economy in crisis, but interestingly planning to create new councils to make Osun as the only state in Nigeria to have 69 councils.

”Copying Lagos State is affecting Osun negatively. Buying helicopter, creating LCDAs, planting flowers are all Lagos ideas. Aregbesola is running Osun as a sole administrator. In his first term, it took him almost one year before he could constitute cabinet”.

”Again 10 months into his second term, the cabinet has not been formed and may not be formed at all for obvious reasons. Even, when his commissioners were in office, the whole state knows he does not listen to their suggestions. He governs the state as a sole administrator”.
