Published

on

Some traditional rulers in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State have appealed to the Committee superintending over the creation of Local Council Development Authorities(LCDAs) to embrace justice and fairness in the location of the LCDAs’ headquarters.

The traditional rulers making the request include, the Olosi of Osi-Ekiti, Oba Oladiran Adewoye Agunbiade, Olugbole of Igbole-Ekiti, Oba Emmanuel Olugenga Ajayi and the Onifisin of Ifisin Ekiti, Oba Folarin Fabunmi, backed the creation of new LCDAs from the existing Ido/Osi Council with headquarters in Osi Ekiti.

The monarchs represented by the Olosi in-council made the call on Friday while addressing the committee on creation of LCDAs in Ado-Ekiti.

The monarchs in a paper expressed optimism that the committee would study their request and do justice to it.

The traditional rulers commended Governor Kayode Fayemi for putting machinery in motion to consider the creation of LCDAs in the state to bring government closer to the people and for administrative convenience.

“The creation of a local government from Igbole-Osi-Ifisin axis will bring governance closer to the people and ensure administrative convenience.

“This agitation has been on for a long time and that accounted for the recognition granted Osi Ekiti when a new local government was carved out of the old Ero Council and named Ido/Osi local government that is inexistent today”.

Also speaking for the delegation, the Odofin of Osi Ekiti, Engr. Olaiya Faturoti disclosed that similar agitations have been made and presented to successive governments and committees between 1955, 1995, 2003 and 2014.

Faturoti said Ido and Osi were the two paramount landowners in the local government since time immemorial.

” Ido-Ekiti has been the headquarters of the LGA in existing since creation and Osi should be headquarters of LCDA to be created soon in the spirit of fairness and justice.

“We do not have the official figure of the number of LCDAs to be created out of the existing 16 LGAs. Our position, however, is that, if any LCDA is to be created out of the extant Ido/Osi LGA, then an Osi LCDA, with headquarters in Osi Ekiti must be the first consideration”.

He said Ifisin and Igbole Ekiti and few others have expressed their readiness to work with Osi as the headquarters of the proposed LCDA.

“In view of the settled history of local government administration in what constitutes Ido/Osi LGA today, it is difficult to understand or argue any basis why the headquarters of the proposed LCDA should not be in Osi-Ekiti”. The Chairman noted.

He urged the committee to be conscious of the implications of whatever actions that would be taken, so that such actions do not run foul of the laws and the tradition of the people that have existed from time immemorial.

“Placing Osi-Ekiti under any smaller community, whether in the name of citing of the LCDA, may be rightly regarded as an attempt to denigrate and degrade the Osi Ekiti community and its revered traditional institutions”, he stated.
