The House then directed the Chairman to handover to the Vice-Chairman, Hon. Adeyeba Ebenezer, for a period of two months.
The Ife North Local Government parliamentarians had passed a vote of no confidence on the Chairman following his failure to explain how substantial funds of the Local Government were expended.
