Under the leadership of Hon. (Mr) Adebayo Oshinowo, the lawmaker representing kosofe constituency l, for the fourth consecutive terms also known in the Lagos state house of assembly as “Agba egbe” and his constituents called him Pepperito, over the Secretary to the local govts and supervisory councillors appointment.
The chairman lands committee of the Lagos state house of assembly who allegedly rejected the governors approved supervisor list.
Agba egbe, preferred appointees list was substituted with the governor’s choice and they were sworn in immediately in the affected kosofe LG, Agboyi ketu and ikosi isheri lcdas as gathered.
Which triggered a protest to the governor’s office. That caused the government to sanction some local government staffs for ignoring the state directives.
The status quo was maintained till the arrival of the national leader of Apc, Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who was away as at the time of the political developments.
The Lagos state government who pays political appointees through a payments system called Oracle recently organised a seminar for Secretaries to the Local govts and the supervisory councillors.
The affected appointees without portfolio and offices in the council was in attendance and fully participated as the original approved appointees.
Since the Lasg is saddle with the responsibility of payments of political appointees according to the interview granted to Kosofepost by former super Hon. Abiodun Davids sometimes ago revealed. Would it then be a case of one man working and another man’s collecting salary?
Though, Tinubu was reportedly told the party stakeholders to respect the executive orders but as we writes the status quo has not changed. Which proved the governor had succumbed to the senior politicians.
If the status quo is maintained and sustained it means the attempted resuscitation or renewal of Kosofe justice forum(JF), means political death, expiration and extinction of the once king making political group.
When kp contacted a prominent member of the justice forum he declined to comment.
The just concluded the Kosofe Local government budget retreat 2018 with the supers,kosofe lg Chairman Hon. Sofola, vice chairman, SLG ,council manager in attendance in the 2days events confirmed the real authority at the local level.
Kosofepost, Some of the JF supporters are just suffering for their commitment and loyalty to the group. Its high time, They come to the realization that pepperito is the boss of bosses in Kosofe LG and indeed Lagos state.
Otunba Bushira Alebiosu Over 82years old, had done his best as an individual and as a group politically but the Junior Hon Dayo Bush who ought to have stepped forward to give leadership directions was not active.
If Otunba Bush has attained the political retirement age but the younger bush still has a long way to go. Though he is comfortable and If he is not ready to give the desire leadership role expected of him, his father supporters has to quite and align with the Wise men.
If Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode’s can honour the wise men. Who are we not to?
