…Non compliant Alimosho leaders have the backing of Osun State Governor Aregbesola

The All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State, have challenged the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, over his list of Secretaries to the Local Governments and Supervising Councillors.

The Governor, through Tunji Bello who is the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), released a list last week of all appointed SLGs and Supers for the 57 Local Governments (LG) and Local Council Development Areas (LCDA) in Lagos State and have directed all Chairmen in the state to swear them in today,Monday 6th November, 2017.

However, since the release of the aforementioned list, a party leader in Alimosho Local Government, Abdullahi Enilolobo and other leaders in the local government have vowed to discard the list and have also mandated all chairmen under Alimosho to present a fresh list and swear them in today, in defiance of the Lagos state Governor.

According to these non compliant leaders, Ambode even as a Governor of the state has no right to compile a list for them, as Alimosho is not a territory he (Ambode) can dabble into politically.

Enilolobo was further quoted to have directed all Chairmen under Alimosho, not to proceed with the inauguration, based on the list submitted to Alimosho by Ambode, he goes further to say the list is inconsequential in Alimosho.

As at the time of filling this report,, reliably gathered that the Chairmen of three(3) Councils out of the six (6) in Alimosho have prepared a fresh list of SLGs and Supers to be sworn in any moment from now.

Sources in the APC political family in Alimosho, however divulged to that the leaders in Alimosho, have the full backing of the Osun state Governor Rauf Aregbeshola, who was the former commissioner of works in Lagos state.

Interestingly, Alimosho is Ogbeni Aregbesola’s political base before he became the governor of Osun state. Even as Governor in his home state, Aregbesola is not willing  to relinquish his political structure in Lagos state.

He still wields enormous political influence in Alimosho said the source.
