Following the resolution of the Lagos State House of Assembly yesterday  relieving the Executive Secretaries of the 57 Local Governments Councils and Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the State of their responsibilities, the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has approved the immediate dissolution of the Caretaker Committees.

In a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr Tunji Bello, the Governor also directed the Executive Secretaries to hand over the reins of administration to the Head of Administration in each of the Council Areas.

Yesterday’s dissolution of the Caretaker committees is preparatory to the holding of elections into the 57 Council Areas by the State Government and ensuring that the necessary machineries are put in place preparatory to the elections.

The State House of Assembly had also on April 22 this year passed into law a bill recommending a four-year tenure for elected Local Government helmsmen instead of the three years tenure that hitherto obtained. It would be recalled that the Caretaker Committees which was headed by Executive Secretaries were inaugurated by former Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola on January 5.
