The Ondo State State Government has approved the purchase of twenty six vehicles for all the members of the state house of Assembly.

The Commissioner for Finance, Wale Akinterinwa disclosed this while briefing government house reporters at the end of the weekly state executive council meeting .

The Commissioner said the gesture became necessary as a result of the respect the Akeredolu led administration accorded the legislative arm of the government.

In a related Development, the House has extended by six months the tenure of the caretaker committee in the eighteen local government areas of the state.

The house at its first sitting after recess today granted the request of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to elongate their tenure.

Speaking on the request, Chairman House Committee on Local Government Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon Suleiman Maito said the extension became necessary since their tenure expired 3rd of this month.

He said the extension will avail the local government chairmen opportunity to do more for their constituencies.

Speaker Bamidele Oleyelogun then put the motion for extension to voice vote which got the unanimous consent of all the members present at plenary.

Governor Akeredolu wrote his first letter to the House on March 21st 2017 for their confirmation as council bosses after he appointed them following a High Court ruling in Akure which sacked the former local government executives.
