As a courtesy and protocol demands all former Executive office holders portraits are usually hanged in offices, hall and other strategic places. however, the first Executive chairman of Kosofe local government and Bamofin of Ketu land ,Barr. Tunde Braimoh’s , Who served as the council Boss between 1999 to 2002 Portrait has been conspicuously missing while his successors portraits adorned the hall of fame.
In the council Hall we have portraits of Barrister Ademuyiwa Adedeji, Hon. Afolabi Sofola, Hon. Gbemisola Ketiku, Mrs. Jumoke Animaun and again Hon. Afolabi Sofola respectively. The portraits are visible for even the blind to see except that of lawmaker representing Kosofe Constituency 2 at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Braimoh’s spotted missing for a long time without replacement.
Our topflight sources disclosed to your news of the people by the people for the people , The Kosofe Post that several Portrait pictures of Braimoh’s
was dispatched and allegedly abandoned in the council store without using it.
And if the Kosofe council is relying on late Chief Gani Fawehinmi experience on portraits as Narrated by Femi Falana after Gani’s death). The public won’t be concerned any longer.
“Gani Fawehinmi had been sued by Olusegun Obasanjo for libel. It looked like he would lose the case. In court Femi Falana sat beside Gani and whispered to him that the case looked bad. Gani replied that the case would not be heard.
“But the Judge is ready to sit and the case has been listed”, replied Falana.
“Just watch what will happen” said Gani.
When the case was called, Gani told the judge that the case can not be heard. The judge asked for his reasons.
“My lord, the plaintiff in this case is a military man and behind you hangs the picture of the Military Administrator, how can I then accept that this court is impartial?”
The judge then adjourned the case, to be resumed later in the day (according to Mr Falana, the case was not called again that day). Since then, the picture of the head of state/governor has been replaced by a picture of the coat of arms of Nigeria.
Then if the Kosofe Local government council is relying on this to justify it alleged action it will be apt to remove all portraits and replaced by a picture of the coat of arms of Nigeria to correct the misconception and misperception going round Kosofe since it was allegedly removed.
As at the time of posting this report efforts are still ongoing to find out the remote causes of the error, omission or commissioned act.
