A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Hon. Akinyemi Akinlabi, has lauded the state’s House of Assembly over the passage of the Local Government Amended Bill 2016 into law.
Akinlabi told newsmen in Ibadan on Thursday that the Assembly has, by the action, shown it was much responsive to the people’s demand.
The newly-amended law would allow the smooth creation of 35 new Local Council Development Areas(LCDAs) in the state.
According to him, it would also change the nomenclature of the law from local government to LCDAs to avoid constitutional breach.
“This action has established the responsiveness of the house to the demand of the people,” he said.
He said that the Assembly has also demonstrated that cordial relationship existed between the legislative and executive arms of government in the state.
Akinlabi stated that the arms of government has proven to the people of the state that the focus and vision of late Alhaji Lam Adesina’s administration remained relevant now and will continue to be so in years to come.
He urged both arms of government to respond promptly to the people’s demand for local government election within the shortest possible time.
