Oh Dear! Oyo Sacks Lamiju Akala For Decamping
The decision followed the change of party by the sacked local government chairman from the ruling All Progressives Party (APC) to the Action Democratic Party (ADP), the platform on which his father is contesting the governorship seat.
The Oyo State Government made the announcement through the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Mr Bimbo Kolade, at the state secretariat in Ibadan yesterday.
In his place, former Vice Chairman Abas Bello has been sworn in an acting capacity to chair the council. Olamiju was elected on May 12, last year, on the platform of the APC, but alongside some of his councillors, he defected to the ADP to support his father’s ambition, hence is sack.
