Ondo state government says it has requested a Certified True Copy of the court judgment which scrapped the 33 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) created shortly before the demise of late former governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.


State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Olukayode Ajulo, in a statement, said the judgement will be thoroughly scrutinized and appropriate legal advice will be given to the government for further action.


Recall Justice Adegboyega Adebusoye of the state High Court had on Thursday declared the creation of the 33 LCDAs as unconditional and illegal, stating that the former administration did not comply with sections seven and eight of the 1999 constitution.


Justice Adebusoye upheld that there was no equitable distribution of the council areas among the 18 local governments saying that it was illegal for the late former governor to sign a law outside the state.
