The Ekiti State Government on Saturday announced the dissolution of the 35 local government areas, including Local Council Development Areas, caretaker administrations in the state.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the state Governor, Mr. Idowu Adelusi.

According to the statement, all the 35 council chairmen along with their secretaries and other members of caretaker committees, have been relieved of their appointments.

It stated that Governor Ayo Fayose had approved the immediate dissolution of all the councils.

The statement also ordered the immediate dissolution of all boards of parastatals, agencies and commissions.

The 35 local government areas involved were those of the original 16 and the 19 LCDAs in the state.

The statement directed all the affected caretaker chairmen to immediately hand over to the directors of administration in their respective council areas.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that caretaker chairmen had been in control of the 16 council areas throughout the four year tenure of the immediate past governor of the state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.

The former governor also appointed caretaker committees for the 19 newly created LCDAs few days after the June 21 gubernatorial poll, which he lost.

NAN further recalls that Fayemi attempted to hold council election in the 16 councils on February 4, 2011, but was halted by the state?s High Court ruling following a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

The PDP had alleged that some of the members of the State Independent Electoral Commission were card carrying members of the then ruling All Progressives Congress.
