Chairmen of the 18 local government in Ondo State will have to find other means of funding their projects as the state governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo has frozen their accounts.

The chairmen and the counselors of the councils were members of the Peoples Democratic Party who were elected into the offices after winning the local government election in April 2016.

It was gathered that the government had sent circulars to all the 18 council areas to inform them of its decision.

It was also gathered that salaries of the political appointees in the 18 local governments had been stopped as their names have allegedly been removed from the payment voucher of the government.

The affected appointees include secretaries of the councils, personal assistants, special advisers, chiefs of staff among others.
