“During the period of suspension, the Head of the Local Government Administration (HOLGA) will administer the council pending further directives and the outcome of the inquiry into the affairs of the local government as ordered by the governor”, the statement read in

The suspended Chairman, Dare Ogunde,his deputy,all the eleven Councillors and all the political appointees have been directed to stay away from the council premises and
affairs of government during the period of suspension.

Meanwhile, a panel of inquiry consisting of four persons has been appointed to look into the crisis rocking the local government and submit its report within 14 days.

The Committee members are Chief Wole Adesiji (Chairman), Mrs Ayoola Afolabi (member), Mr Bayo Adeyemi (member) and.Barr. James Kolawole Omotosho of the Ministry of Justice (Secretary).

Last Friday, the lawmakers of the council impeached the Leader of the House, Kehinde Quadri from Imobi 2.

Because the suspended Leader of the House is a loyalist to the council boss, the latter rejected the impeachment.

A fracas broke out in the council.

    @ Tae … please ignore people like Lapanji – who think with their anus. It’s not his fault. We should blame oyinbo man who has made internet so cheap … even with 2k handset, you can seat within the corner of your ramshackle room and write rubbish for Bill Clinton to read.
    The business of governance must be seen beyond politicking alone. the governor has done what a responsible and responsive governor should do. The problems of boko haram and niger delta started like this before they were allowed to generate into what we are witnessing today. We watch as events unfold at Ijebu East.

      Some people like you just want to abuse without reason. Go back and check the constitution, you will find out that the states governor has that power. It’s better to keep quiet some time than to speak rubbish.
