Speaking from an informed background several residents of Ikosi Isheri, Kosofe and Lagos has reacted to the delayed and the further postponment of mayoress Samiat Bada, swearing in as Ikosi Isheri Chairperson 6days after Oyesco death.

It is automatic that “in the absence of the Chairman, the Vice Chairman becomes Acting Chairman, so, swearing in or not, if the Vice Chairman is dynamic & bold enough he/she takes over the role of Chairman _mutatis mutandis_ ….. Q.E.D.
It’s not contsitutional I don’t know what could be the delay even the death of Musa yaradua the former president of the federal republic of Nigeria does not take this long but I want to reservemy comments because of the sudden involve in this case . it’s sad but because it’s our party hhhhhhhhhhmmmmm God help us all.
These people are putting their interests before the constitution.
The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is supreme over anybody irrespective of level or designations, I will urge the legislative arm of Ikosi Isheri LDCA to follow the law promptly, and save our party from unnecessary public disgrace .
The issue of the delay of the vice chairman being sworn in at a specific period could be viewed from the legal or constitutional perspective which clearly stipulates what should be done after the untimely death of the former chairman.
However,it could also be viewed from a conventional perspective.this hinges on situation on ground.
This may be the situation at hand at d LCDA.to show respect to the late chairman.
Submission it is unconstitutional,but conventionally and morally permissible..

Kosofe post, I saw yur post on the postponement of Mayoress and the comments therein. Let take it easy with the leadership I know they are putting this postponement to calm down issues and also to tring to put things right. Definitely their is nothing anyone can do to stop the swearing in of princess Bada. I want to believe all will be well.
Loogun Oyekunle Jegede, Ikosi Isheri APC LGA chairman
There is no big deal, we are just being human as we’re gradually recovering from the shock of the sudden death of our late chairman, Engr Ayodele Oyesanya. Swearing in of the Vice Chairman is just a formality, She’s constitutionally the Executive Chairman already. The party is one family with responsible and well respected leaders, at the appropriate time, the Apex Leaders will guide the LGA Exco in nominating an experienced/qualified candidate as Vice Chairman for the Council’s Councillors approval.

i really do think and agree the vice chairman should have been sworn in not later than the the next day after the death of the incumbent chairman.
There is no doubt There is a breach in complying with the provisions of the constitution but who are we going to hold responsible? The party? Managmemt of the council or the legislative arm?
A lot of of emotions go crazy when we loose people espercially suddenly. Insisting that the provisons of constitution on successuon be complied with might have repercusions.laws are made for man not the other way. The implication is that we sometimes must use discretion in the execution of laws.
Hon. Ganiu Oyebanjo,SSA to Kosofe LG on Religion matters
Yes. It could be unconstitutional to allow vacuum in government. That notwithstanding, the party has to put a lot of things into consideration, that does not mean the party is lawless.
Dele Segun Aroyewun, PDP leader
They are a putting sentiment over the law, it’s wrong.
