A message has been sent to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti state. The message is simple – You are ignorant.
The message was sent by the publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress in the South-West, Karounwi Oladapo, Punch Newspaper reports.
Oladapo sent the message following the party’s criticism of the creation of 19 local council development authorities by Ekiti state Governor Kayode Fayemi.
According to him, the criticism showed that the opposition party was ignorant of the fact that councils and LCDA headquarters “are growth centres where development spreads to the other towns and communities under them”.
He disclosed this in a statement titled, ‘Creation of LCDAs in Ekiti: Pardon the ignorance of the South West PDP’.
“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu created additional 37 LCDAs to complement the existing 20 local governments in Lagos, making 57. The 57 are still subsisting and robustly too, till today. This singular act has impacted positively on the grassroots development in Lagos.
“Creating additional LCDAs in Ekiti will stimulate more development and engender increment in the internally generated revenues to the LCDAs; meaning more money will be available than hitherto. It will automatically lead to the elevation of some existing local government workers.”
In other news, Fayemi announced the appointment of Tosin Durodola as his special assistant on digital communications.
The 24-year-old who hails from Igede-Ekiti, Irepodun/Ifelodun LGA confirmed his appointment in a post shared on his Facebook page on Wednesday, August 11.
