The Oyo State chapter of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria, ALGON, has faulted Governor Seyi Makinde’s plan to appoint caretaker chairmen for the 33 local government areas in the state.
The state ALGON Chairman, Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye, in a statement made available to news men described the plan as “tales by moonlight on grassroots democratic governance.”
He said the governor’s plan is “a tale better told to the uninformed and co-deceptive wreckers of the democratic culture.”
Abass-Aleshinloye described democracy as a seed that germinates and develops on the practice and strict adherence to the rule of law and a willingness to entrench the democratic culture by its proponents.
He drew the governor’s attention to the subsisting judgments of the Supreme Court that declared as illegal, null and void, any dissolution of elected local government councils by state governors and state assemblies.
The ALGON Cairman also faulted the Makinde administration for dissolving the Oyo state independent electoral commission, saying the action is illegal as the body is a creation of the Nigerian constitution which the governor promised to uphold.
