He reportedly said the Governor's aim was to gain cheap popularity through the LCDAs creation as the old LCDAs are in a near comatose state.

According to a report by Punch Newspaper, Ogundele said Gov. Amosun was not sincere about creating additional councils.

Ogundele, an ex-local government chairman and a two-time member of the Ogun State House of Assembly, further accused the governor’s administration of crippling local government arm of the government as well as its administration.

The PDP stalwart cited under-funding and usurping of functions by the state government as the reasons for the current state of the LCDAs in the state in the past five years.

In a swift reaction, the All Progressive Congress in Ogun State has risen to the defence of the Governor saying the current administration had since inception relied on uncommon financial strategy to make the deliverables of governance possible.

In a statement by the state's APC Publicity Secretary, Sola Lawal, the ruling party claimed that the newly-created LCDAs would succeed, adding that those who would take charge at the councils had been tutored on the way forward.

Lawal, also used the opportunity to dismiss Ogundele's assertions and claims saying that the good governance posture of the governor would rub off on the councils.
