The Ondo State House of Assembly on Tuesday extended the tenure of the Interim Caretaker Chairmen of the state’s 18 Local Government Councils by six months.

The decision of the House was sequel to a motion moved by the Chairman, Committee on Chieftaincy Affairs, Afolabi Akinsiku , representing Ondo West 1 constituency.

The motion titled, “Elongation of the Local Government Chairmen’s Tenure”, was seconded by Aladetan Oyebo, representing Ilaje 1 constituency.

The two lawmakers had argued that the elongation was necessary to forestall vacuum in governance and to afford people in the state unhindered access to good governance.

The six-month tenure of the council Chairmen, lapsed earlier in the month.
