    Ondo State of Nigeria was one of the seven states created on 3rd February 1976, by the then Federal Military Government of Nigeria. It was carved out of the former Western State and covered the total area of the former Ondo Province, which had been created in 1915 with Akure as the provincial headquarters. The state lies between latitudes 5°45' and 7°52'N and longitudes 4°20' and 6° 05'E. Its land area is about 15,500 square kilometres and the State is bounded on the east by Edo and Delta states, on the west by Ogun and Osun States, on the north by Ekiti and Kogi States and to the south by the Bight of Benin and the Atlantic Ocean. Officially, Ondo State came into existence on 1st April 1976. It consisted of nine administrative divisions of the former Western State and retained Akure as the state capital. In 1996 the Ondo administrative divisions of Ekiti Central, Ekiti North, Ekiti South and Ekiti West were transformed into a new territory called Ekiti State. Meaning Ondo state was now made up of only five divisions. The apex of the administrative structure is the state headquarters, Akure. Prior to the carving out of Ekiti State from Ondo State there were twenty-six Local Government Areas (LGAs). Fourteen of these remained in Ondo State, and from these, additional four LGAs were created. There are now 18 LGAs in Ondo State. According to the official results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) following the 2011 April general elections, the ruling Labour Party (LP) in Ondo State won 25 out of the 26 House of Assembly seats; The main opposition PDP won only one seat and notably, three female Members of the Labour Party were elected to the House.
