LAGOS STATE: Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode Slapped By Ikosi-Isheri LCDA Chairman.

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos.
This is the first time anything like this is happening in Lagos where a Local Government Chairman would deny the orders of the Governor of the state to do exactly what pleases him as against what the governor wants and had directed to be done in a particular Local Government.

This was what happened at the Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area, LCDA over the appointment of Secretary to the Local Government and Supervisory Councilors.

Information has it that the Chairman of the council, Oyesanya Abdulfatai who was said to have the backing of one Hon. Bayo Oshinowo, member, Lagos State House of Assembly, representing a part of Kosofe blatantly refused the suggested list of candidates presented by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to the Local Government for the positions earlier stated, claiming that the governor was in no position to recommend anybody to them and would not regard them nor swear in the candidates into their respective offices, instead he swore in his own candidates into office as early as 6:30am on Monday.

This is crazy though.

The list suggested by the governor included: Mrs Kafayat Filaoye (SLG) and Olalekan Folake Azeez, Idowu Ashimi, Mrs Funke Alabi, Gbadesare Isiaka Fashola and Ajayi Olaniyi Isaac as supervisory councilors, but was disobediently replaced with Dolapo bashiru as SLG and Sikiru Alabi, Fatoki Kehinde, Yemi Oshofa, Abideen, Awokoya Sukanmi , Alhaji Adisa as supervisory councilors.

They were sworn in by one Barrister Mutiu Ajisebutu and in the presence of the Clerk, Mr Kehinde Fashola.

If this act of the LCDA Chairman not a slap on Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, then what is?
