In 1996, the Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government Area was established. It served as one of Badagry Division’s three district councils. The Administrative Division (Establishment) Edict, which divided Lagos State into five administrative divisions, was issued in 1968. (Lagos, Badagry, Epe, Ikorodu and Ikeja). Egun-Awori and Awori Districts were the other two districts of Badagry Division. The 1976 local government changes, however, resulted in a significant political and physical rearrangement of the division.

The former three District Councils in Badagry Division: Egun-Awori, Ajeromi-Ifelodun, and Awori Districts were consolidated and brought under one umbrella with the implementation of the local government Edict of 1976 by the State Government. The Badagry Local Government was formed by these three district councils, with Badagry serving as the administrative headquarters.

From Apapa in Lagos to the Seme boarder in the west, the boundary expanded eastwards. With the establishment of civil administration in October 1979, the then-Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande, divided the Local Government in Lagos State into twenty-three (23) districts in order to bring government closer to the people. Ojo (old Awori District), Ajeromi/Ifelodun, and Badagry Local Government were thus divided into three autonomous councils. However, due to the military takeover in 1983, this arrangement was only temporary.

On taking office in December 1983, the erstwhile Federal Military Administration of General Buhari/Idiagbon nullified all local governments established by the civilian administration between October 1979 and December 1983. The Lagos State Government, led by Comodore Mike Akhigbe, reverted to eight local governments constituted during the 1976 Local Government Reforms as a result of the restructuring.

Recognizing that the defunct civilian administration from 1979 to 1983 could not achieve the aims and objectives of the 1976 reformed local government system, the late Major-General Tunde Idiagbon, then Chief of Staff, Supreme Headquarters, appointed a 20-man committee led by Alhaji Dasuki to re-examine the existing structure, functions, and financial resources of local governments, among other things. The committee highlighted in its report that the country’s local government system had more operational issues than fundamental issues following the 1976 reforms.

When it came to the creation of new local governments, which was a hot topic at the time, the committee proposed that if they were to be created at all, they should be done every 10 years. The group did, however, recommend the following criteria for forming new local governments: (1) A population of 100,000 to 150,000 people (2) A tax-paying population of 20,000 people (3) Geographical congruity (4) Community tradition, association, and wishes (5) Financial viability of the area in question—the ability to generate at least 50% of the revenue required to pay the local government’s annual recurrent expenditures from within the area (6) Administrative convenience

The Dasuki Commission’s recommendations were not immediately implemented in Lagos State until 1989 and 1996, when Ojo was created from Badagry Local Government (1989) and later (1996) Amuwo Odofin and Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Governments were created from Ojo Local Government, bringing the total number of local governments in Lagos State to twenty (20).

Despite real calls from Lagosians for more council areas, the number of local governments in the state remained at twenty.
