OGUN: I’m committed to petition against Abiodun – LG boss

THE suspended Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government Area of the state, Wale Adedayo, who was released yesterday after spending three days in the custody of the Department of State Security Services has said that he remained unshaken in his demand that Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, should allow the local governments in the state have access to federal allocations meant to develop the grassroots.

He also stressed that he has no regrets about the actions he has so far taken despite his arrest and detention for three days.

Speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta shortly after his release, Adedayo said that he was detained because of a petition sent by Governor Abiodun to the security agency wherein he was alleged to have been making inciting comments that could jeopardise public peace.

The LG boss who was last Thursday suspended by seven councillors in his local government for three months over allegations of maladministration and financial mismanagement however, said that he had told the DSS that there was never a time he made any inciting comments other than the letter written to the former governor of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba where he alleged that Abiodun has not funded the local governments in the state for two years.
