Breaking : Lagos Assembly Lifts Surulere Council Chairman’s Suspension


Lagos State House of Assembly has lifted the suspension of the Chairman of Surulere Local Government, Mr Tajudeen Ajide.

The decision was made by the House on Tuesday during plenary session when  the Speaker of the House, Rt(Hon) Mudashiru Obasa read the apology letter of the Council Chairman before the members of the House.

However, for the Alimosho council chairman, the Speaker said it was learnt that he refused to hand over to the vice chairman after he was suspended.

He directed the two lawmakers from the area, Hon. Bisi Yusuff and Hon. Kehinde Joseph, to investigate and report back.

Recall that the suspension of the council chairmen followed a motion moved by Hon. Yusuff, who raised issues against Olaitan. He was supported by Hon. Fatai Mojeed.

Putting the matter to a voice vote, Speaker Obasa had warned: “Total disregard for the local government guideline is something that should not be tolerated.

“We cannot continue like this. We can’t be breeding monsters in our local government councils.

“This will also serve as a deterrent. We have received many petitions from councillors.”
