The Oyo State House of Assembly yesterday extended the tenure of local government chairmen and Council Development Areas (LCDAs) by two months.
Deputy Speaker Musa Abdulwasiu told reporters in Ibadan, the capital, that the decision was unanimously adopted following a request by Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
Abdulwasi said the tenure extension was for three months; March to May 4 – pending the conduct of election.
According to him, the extension is to avoid any vacuum in council administration.
NAN reports that Ajimobi appointed the caretaker chairmen last March.
