The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has hailed Governor Rauf Aregbesola on the presentation of the bill for the creation of 27 local council development areas (LCDAs) to the House of Assembly.
In a statement by its Director of Publicity, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, APC described the governor’s move as “a great step in imprinting himself in the hearts of the people”.
Stressing that the governor has fulfilled all his electioneering promises, the party said: “Aregbesola is changing the face of politics from that of deceit to unimaginable credibility within a short period of three years. Aregbesola is not just about to create new councils, but set a precedence by making them more cost effective to run through a parliamentary system.
“This is typical of a leader that is thinking outside the box; a blessing for which Osun people are grateful to God. New councils will bring governance closer to the people and make it more participatory.”
APC alleged that some politicians in the opposition were planning to destroy the billboards of its aspirants.
It urged residents to be vigilant and report billboard vandals to the police.
