Councils dissolution: Oyo ALGON kicks, vows to challenge order
Re: Purported Dissolution of Local Government in Oyo State.
It has come to the notice of ALGON Oyo State branch that the new governor of Oyo State, His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has purportedly dissolved all democratically elected local government in the state.
This to say the least is unconstitutional, unexpected and too hasty for a new government.
This illegality was reported in the news media..
ALGON Oyo rejects this unconstitutional act of Mr. Governor. It is illegal and a contempt of a subsisting court judgement against any dissolution of the councils as ordered by Justice A. A. Aderemi of High Court 2, Ibadan, Oyo State., on May 6, 2019.
We wish to appeal to all local government chairmen, councillors, supervisors and Oyo State citizens in these respective councils to remain calm and be peaceful as we all know PDP government as trouble makers.
ALGON will seek all democratic and constitutional means to correct this illegal act.
All will be appropriately updated as events unfold.
We count on your solidarity and maximum moral support in this democratic struggle.
Thank you all.
