Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Sunday appointed  caretaker chairmen for the 18 local councils, according to 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.
