The Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde on Sunday has dismissed the allegation by Association of Local Governments (ALGON) in Oyo State of plans to inaugurate caretaker committees for the 33 native governments and 35 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs), saying the group is simply seeking for relevance.
Reacting via his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, Makinde said that “it is a funny allegation that is aimed at keeping their name in the news.”
The Governor equally suggested the group to give attention to the case they claimed to have filed in court “and go away the federal government to its service of the people.”
Restating the dedication of his administration, Governor Makinde said that “the federal government won’t be distracted by their antics.”
Meanwhile, the statement issued on Sunday by ALGON Chairman, Prince Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye, described the alleged plan as “a panicky step to prempt the potential for shedding its appeal in opposition to the excessive court judgement perpetually restraining it from dissolving the native authorities.”
It added that the transfer was tantamount to “government rascality, an affront on the Judiciary and the rule of legislation by the brand new administration that’s determined to return Oyo State to the old manner of lawlessness and ‘pankere’ politics of settling constitutional issues by political thuggery.
“This is impunity and a resort to self assist which might not be tolerated. It shall be recalled that our case of contempt of court in opposition to the federal government was adjourned to July 30th, 2019 by Justice Ladiran Akintola of High Court 9, Ibadan with hello
s Lordship’s order that the events to keep up the established order ante.
“It is a grave growth to seek out that whereas different states are transferring on to developmental politics and agenda for his or her people, our personal state authorities in Oyo proceed to retrogress into illegality, recklessness and lawlessness, but it’s a authorities that was sworn in to defend the structure it now tramples upon with impunity.”
