The Governor of Osun State, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, has said his administration is ready to breathe life into the newly created Local Council Development Authorities with the submission of the report on boundary delineation and assets sharing by the various committees.

He also stated that a team that will make an official presentation of the newly created councils to the National Assembly are already working to ensure that an approval is given and to make it part of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Governor stated this in his office while receiving the reports of the committees set up on the boundary delianation and adjustment as well as the report of the assets sharing committee for the newly created LCDAs and Area offices.

Aregbesola held that the old and new Local Government Areas must be presented formally to the national assembly, saying that as soon as this is done, it will not only be a local affair but nationally recognised and accepted.

The Governor stated that all the processes have been diligently passed through, expressing confidence that approval for the establishment of the local councils will be given by the National Assembly.

He also said that the operators of the LCDAs will have a good ground to operate on, assuring that the state is not short of the technicalities that are needed for smooth operations.
