The Chairman of Ogbomoso North Local Government Area of Oyo State, Hon. Olamiju Alao-Akala, has been suspended from office.
He is the son of former governor and governorhsip candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in the 2019 election, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala.
Olamiju last week dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) where he was elected Chairman and joined his father in the ADP. His suspension may not be unconnected to the defection.
Although a letter signed by four Councillors in the LGA, said he is being suspended for gross misconduct and that the decison was taken after a legislative council plenary last Friday.
Meanwhile, the suspended council boss has urged his council members to remain calm as he remains the Local Government chairman of Ogbomoso North.
His words: “The development is not only illegal but also a comedy script written by the power that be and acted by amateur actors and actresses involved”
Reacting to the development on Facebook, Alao-Akala’s camp alleged that the councillors were forced to sign the suspension order by Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
Alao-Akala quoted Hon. Adebowale Oyejoke, one of those who signed the resolution, as saying that they were summoned to Government House where they were ordered to sign the prepared resolution in the presence of the governor.
