Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, on Sunday appointed caretaker chairmen for the 18 local councils, according to Mr Olusegun Ajiboye, his Chief Press Secretary.
Sixteen of the appointees are men and two women.
A High Court in Akure on Friday, annulled the election of the former chairmen of the councils on the grounds that the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) and its logo were excluded from the election. The sacked chairmen were elected in April 2016.
The caretaker chairmen are: Mr Aworetan Fayowole (Ilaje), Prince Odimayo Gbadebo (Irele), Mrs Morenike Alaka (Okitipupa), Prince George Adenikinju (Odigbo), Mr Temidayo Akinsuroju (Ile Oluji/Oke Igbo), and Mr Bekewe Olowu (Ese-Odo).
