Court Stops Sacked LG Chairmen In Oyo From Resuming

Funsho Akinwale

Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday, secured an injunction stopping the sacked council chairmen in the 33 local government areas and 35 local council development areas from forcefully taking over the council secretariats in the state.

But in a swift reaction, the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) in Oyo State insisted that its sacked members would continue to perform their official duties in spite court injunction.

Abass-Alesinloye, the spokesman for the group, in his reaction, added that the chairmen would still remain in office, saying no amount of intimidation will make them back down.

“The injunction that the state government is parading is a kangaroo injunction.

“They went to a state high court; they did not obtain the order from the Federal High Court.

“ I don’t know why they are just behaving so illegally,” Aleshinloye said.
