Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Saturday approved the appointment of new sole administrators who are expected to head the administration of 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Areas in the state.
According to a statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Tunji Bello, the governor will swear-in the new appointees on Monday at the Banquet Hall of Lagos House, Ikeja.
The statement added that the sole administrators, after being sworn-in, will take charge of their various councils pending the conduct of local poll later this year.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ambode on Thursday approved the immediate dissolution of caretaker committees following the resolution of the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The dissolution relieved the Executive Secretaries of the 57 Local Governments Councils and Local Council Development Areas in the state of their responsibilities.
The governor also directed the executive secretaries to hand over the reins of administration to the Head of Administration in the council areas.
