An Ondo State  High Court sitting at Akure on Thursday described as inchoate, the 33 Local Government Development Areas (LCDAs) created by a former governor of the state, late Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, and therefore a nullity.
Justice A.O Adebusuoye, the trial judge in his judgement that since the LCDAs are inchoate, it means they are unlawfully created.

The court held that it was illegal for a governor to sign a law outside the state.

The court added  that the Local Government Creation Law 2023 signed by late Akeredolu in Ibadan, outside the state, was unconstitutional, illegal, null and void.

The News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) reports that Akeredolu had on Sept.  9, 2023 assented to the bill creating 33 Local Council Development Areas, LCDAs in the state.

The bill for the creation of the LCDAs was   presented to the late governor by the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Chief Oladiji Olamide, during a  ceremony at the governor’s residence in Ibadan, Oyo State.
