The dismissal of Oyo state Local government chairmen by Seyi Makinde led administration has been retained by an appeal court in Ibadan
Naija News Understands Justice Haruna Tsammani who gave the verdict said the sacked local government Chairmen failed to show verifiable facts of the plan by the Oyo State governor to dissolve the councils. Tammani also said the case initiated was based on mere speculations and conjectures.
Bashorun Bosun Ajuwon had instituted the case on behalf of the Oyo State chapter of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON).
Naija News recalls that governor Seyi Makinde led administration and the embattled council bosses had been at loggerheads over the control of the local government and local council development areas.
The judgement elicited jubilation as the Court of Appeal premises which were filled by supporters of the state chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) erupted in loud songs of victory.
