Why Supreme Court Should Have Reinstated Sacked Oyo LG Bosses — Mulikat
A former leader of the House of Representatives, Mulikat Akande Adeola, has sad she would have been happier if the Supreme Court had reinstated the sacked council chairmen and councillors.
According to Mulikat, who represented Ogbomoso North/Ogbomoso South/Oriire federal constituency between 2007 and 2015, is speaking on Fresh 105.9 FM’s Political Circuit anchored by Mayor Isaac Brown.
Rather than ask the government to pay salaries and allowances of the council helmsmen, Mulikat said reinstating them would have put a stop to governors in the habit of sacking elected council bosses.
The Supreme Court, AKÉDE Ọ̀YỌ́ understands, had Friday afternoon faulted the removal of elected council chairmen by Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State.
Not satisfied with their removal, the council bosses had to go from high court through to the appellate court before today’s supreme court judgement.
Though they were not returned to their council areas, the court, however, asked the Makinde administration to pay the salaries and allowances before August 2021.
