noted that there had been issues
between some of the new LCDAs and
their parent LGAs, but charged the
members to be fair to all and come up
with appropriate recommendations for
necessary action by government.
“As you may be aware, because most of
these LCDAs are totally new, issues
which are not unusual arose between
some of the parent Local Government
Areas and the new ones as regards who
takes what on legacy assets of some of
the old councils and LCDAs they gave
birth to. We thank God it has not
degenerated beyond what we can
handle’’, he said.

has necessitated the ‘’proper delineation
of the areas of authority and jurisdiction
of each Local Council to determine who
takes what’’, stating that members of
