The state’s Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, made the promise at the quarterly interactive session with the Local Government Boundary Committees from Ondo Central and North Senatorial Districts in Akure.
Aiyedatiwa, represented by the Secretary of the Ondo State Boundary Commission, Mr Abiodun Owolabi, said that the interactive session was to rededicate the committee members to their statutory roles.
“This interactive session is important so as to maintain the relative peace that we have been enjoying in the state and with our sister states.
So the update is important,” he said.
The deputy governor said it was important for committee members to be alive to their responsibilities of handling both inter-local and community disputes in the state.
Aiyedatiwa enjoined the committee members to be committed to their assignments and always report every development affecting the security of the border towns.
A resource person for the session, Mr Henry Adegbenro, thanked the state government for bringing ”dividends of democracy”, closer to the people.
Adegbenro added that it was imperative for state and local governments to ensure proper management of boundary disputes.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Local Government Boundary Committees were composed of traditional leaders, security agencies and Vice Chairmen of the Local Government Areas.
