Following official correspondences from Ogbomoso North Local Government Area’s legislative body announcing the suspension of Olamijuwon Alao-Akala, the Oyo state government has suspended eight councillors from neighbouring LCDA, InsideOyo.com gathered.
The Oyo state government endorsed the sack of Mr Olamijuwon Alao-Akala, a son of former Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala, as the Executive Chairman of Ogbomoso North Local Government Area and appointed former Vice Chairman Abass Bello in acting capacity.
The decision followed the change of party by the sacked local government chairman from the ruling All Progressives Party (APC) to the Action Democratic Party (ADP), the platform on which his father is contesting the governorship seat.
According to a similar report by The Nation, the government made the announcement at the swearing-in of the acting local government chairman on Wednesday through the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Mr Bimbo Kolade, at the state secretariat in Ibadan, the state capital.
Olamiju Alao-Akala was elected on May 12, last year, on the platform of the APC, but alongside some of his councillors, but recently defected to the ADP to support his father’s ambition.
The councillors suspended are from neighbouring Ogbomoso Central Local Council Development Area (LCDA):
