“The Supreme Court has ordered the transfer of the Secretariat of the Council to Eda Onio on December 14, 2018;

But to this day nothing on earth exists. No structure, no building except the staff. The accommodation provided by the host community Eda Onio cannot accommodate all staff. They are working under trees that should not be clean workers.

The king continued: “Elejameje is one of the 774 local governments recognized by the Federal Government newspaper. Passers-by will not see any indication that we have a local government headquarters.

“The lack of resources in the office is putting pressure on effective service delivery,” he said. Governor Faemi is aware of the situation in Eljamej. To this end, we have provided a note to build the Secretariat. We are waiting for the approval of the regional government, ”he said.
