The Lagos State House of Assembly has suspended three local government council chairmen in the state.
They are; Ogidan Mukandasi Olaitan of the Lekki LCDA, Suleiman Jelili of Alimosho local government area and Tajudeen Ajide of the Surulere local government area.
The House said after the suspension on Tuesday that it can no longer continue to watch while the council chairmen stubbornly flout the state’s local government guidelines.
Their suspension was unanimously approved by members of the House in a voice vote with no opposition shortly after Hon. Bisi Yusuff (Alimosho 1) raised a complaint against Olaitan.
Yusuff who is the chairman of the House Committee on Commerce and Industry narrated to his colleague how allegedly rude Olaitan had been.
Speaking on the issue, Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. (Dr) Mudashiru Obasa, noted that the House had received petitions from many councilors in the state against sitting chairmen.
The Speaker added that it would not be ideal to gloss over the issue as it would be creating a precedence of disobedience to the law by council chairmen especially at a time the state is planning elections for new council chairmen.
