Lagos Assembly Orders Immediate Removal Of Oriade Council Boss

Lagos State House of Assembly
Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly have called for the immediate removal of the Sole Administrator of Oriade Local Council Development Area, Mr. Habeeb Aileru for gross misappropriation of fund and fragrant disregard of the law.

The Assembly took this decision following the motion moved by Honourable Bisi Yusuf, Chairman Committee on Public Accounts (Local Government), on the gross mismanagement of the council. Hon Yusuf told the House that the committee during its mid-year budget review found out the gross abnormalities in the council administration perpetrated by Mr Aileru.

The committee Chairman amongst other allegations, said that Mr Aileru disregarded the directives of the state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi  Ambode who instructed the Sole Administrators at inception not to incur debts nor award contracts.

Speaking, Hon. Bisi Yusuf stated that Mr.  Aileru who met a debt of N285 million at Oriade LCDA, incurred a whooping N408 million as at the last quarter of 2016.

In her contribution, Hon. Olufunmilayo Tejusho, a member of the committee stated her displeasure at which Mr Aileru threw all caution to the wind and acted like a demi-god in the local council. Tejuosho said that the council boss has failed in his duties and should be made to face the law.

The Speaker, Rt.Hon.Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa said that the decision of the committee was the decision of the House, noting that Mr Aileru has been indicted by the Office of the Auditor General for Local Government in the state for misappropriation of funds while both the Council Manager and the Council Treasurer also wrote a letter to Mr Aileru to stop the illegalities he was perpetrating in Oriade LCDA which Aileru ignored.

The Speaker therefore said that the House is left with no other decision than to remove Mr Abeeb Aileru.

The motion for his removal was thus moved by Honourable Bisi Yusuf while Honourable Adedamola Richard Kasumu seconded it.
