By Josephine Oguntoyinbo

Ondo State House of Assembly has confirmed the appointments of 102 interim management committee Chairmen/Vice Chairmen of Local Governments and new Local Council Development Areas in the State.

This is sequel to the submission and consideration of a report by the House of Assembly Selection Committee chaired by the Speaker, Olamide Oladij at a plenary yesterday.

The House had earlier conducted screening for all the nominees at the Assembly complex.

The tenure of the past Local governments Chairmen and their vice expired some months ago.

The Clerk of the House, Jaiyeola Benjamin read the letter sent to the House by the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for the consideration of the nominees.

While submitting the report, the Deputy Speaker of the House, Prince Abayomi Akinruntan called for confirmation of the appointment of the nominees whom he affirmed have been properly screened.

Earlier, while presenting the recommendations of the Selection Committee, Akinruntan noted that all the nominees were eligible and suitable for the offices upon their screening as they possessed the required academic qualifications to function effectively as well as being physically, mentally and emotionally stable.

He added that they possess the needed exposures necessary for the jobs

The Majority Leader of the House, Oluwole Ogunmolasuyi moved a motion for the adoption of the report and confirmation of their appointments, which was seconded by a lawmaker representing Akure South constituency 2, Stephen Abitogun.

Thereafter, the Speaker read out the names of the interim management committee members and declared that the reason for their appointment is to ensure that no vacuum is created in the administration of Local Council after the dissolution  of the former executives.
