….invites Chairman, Councillors, Others
The Lagos State House Of Assembly has moved to resolve the brewing crisis between the Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Mr Buraimoh Valentine and the Councillors in the council.
The reconciliation move was initiated as the House Committee On Local government and Community Affairs on Wednesday, invited Valentine and the councillors to the Assembly Complex, in Alausa, Ikeja.
Speaking with journalists after the oversight tour to the council and Oriade LCDA, the Chairman of the House Committee, Hon. AbdulSobur Olawale said the two parties in the crisis had been invited to the Assembly to address the issues causing the crisis.
Olawale said that crisis was inevitable in any human society but that the issues would be resolved amicably.
He added that the committee was impressed with the mutual understanding that exists among the Chairman of Oriade LCDA, Councillors and Staff, adding that the cordial relationship reflects in the delivery of public goods to the people of the council.
