The Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) has directed that the Caretaker Chairman of Ondo West Local Government Area of the State, Mr. Ebenezer A. Akinsulire, be suspended with Immediate effect.
In a statement made available to WesternPost on Wednesday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Segun Ajiboye said the Governor’s directive was based on a petition against Akinsulire, in which he was alleged of various offences, including gross misconduct, ranging on mismanagement of council funds, anti party activities.
Governor Akeredolu has also given directive that the DLGA takes over the running of the affairs of the LGA until further notice.
The Governor has set up an investigative panel to look into all the allegations leveled against Akinsulire and come up with appropriate recommendation on the matter.
Akinsulire is expected to hand over all government’s property in his possession.
The Governor warns other political office holders in the State that the administration has zero tolerance for any act that may tarnish the image of the government.
All efforts made by WesternPost in reaching the council boss on his mobile phone proved abortive as at the time of filling the report.
