Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, has urged the newly elected local government‎ chairmen in the state to employ team dynamics and good human management in their administration.

The Governor stated this while delivering his address Tuesday at the swearing-in ceremony for the 18 chairmen in Akure, the state capital.

Governor Mimiko informed the audience that his administration decided to dissolve the existing local government administration he met in 2009 because it was constituted illegally.

He advised the new chairmen to work together with the career officers, the councillors and traditional rulers‎ in their councils.

Mimiko also advised them to embrace exemplary leadership, transparency and accountability and equally maintain peace and security of their people.

The Chairman of Ondo State Independent Electoral Commission (ODIEC), Prof. Olugbenga Ige, had earlier in the day presented Certificates of Return to the chairmen at the commission’s office in Akure.

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won all the 18 chairmanship positions contested during the election held across the state on Saturday. The party also won 202 councillorship seats out of the 203 seats available, while the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) won the remaining one seat. Two other major parties in the state, Labour Party and the federal-ruling All Progressives Congress, boycotted the election.

The swearing-in ceremony was held at the International Culture and Eve‎nts Centre, Akure. Top government officials, among them members of the state cabinet, legislators, as well as traditional rulers, relatives and friends of the chairmen witnessed the occasion.
