One of the local government chairmen is the Chairman of Ido Local Government Area, Sheriff Adeojo and his counterparts from Olorunsogo, Oluwakemi Juliana Akanni Ika and Hon. Adebare from Iwajowa.

Adeojo was suspended by the legislative arm of the local government a few days ago.

The lawmakers have, however, directed the council bosses to submit reports of their activities within the next 2 weeks.

The lawmakers noted that the report must contain detailed information on the income and expenditure of all the LG councils and their local council development areas.

It must also include funds allocation, Internally Generated Revenue, IGR , programs and projects executed between January and July, 2022.

The directive was part of the resolutions of the house on Thursday while deliberating on a motion jointly sponsored by Babajide Gabriel, Akeem Mustapha and Abdullah AbdulRasaq.

The lawmakers said, “The assessment of these Chairmen in their various domains by stakeholders, politicians, community leaders, and others revealed that some of them have performed up to expectations in tandem with the development policy of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde while some performed below expectations thereby hindering grassroot development.

“Some people in the Local Government complained of total neglect in terms of provision of basic needs such as rehabilitation of local roads, bridges, schools and primary health centers.

“As the representatives of the local inhabitants, for us to achieve a true representation of our people, there is the continuous need to strengthen our oversight functions on the local Government and other Agencies of Government as empowered by the provisions of the constitution.”
