Oyo state House of Assembly has suspended the vice chairman of Iseyin local government and political head of Iseyin South Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Ajibola Raheem Fasasi.
The house equally ordered the suspended Iseyin vice chairman to step aside with immediate effect to give room for investigations.
Fasasi was accused of illegally dismantling and selling off government properties.
His suspension was consequent upon a petition brought before the house Councilors in the local council.
A 7-man committee comprising Councilors in the area set up to investigate allegations levelled against Fasasi had recommended Fasasi’s suspension to the state House of Assembly in its report.
The lawmakers, while deliberating on the petition and recommendations noted that there was need for accountability at the local government administration to maintain integrity and transparency.
They also explained that it was important for the embattled vice chairman to step aside immediately to avoid obstruction of investigation by the house.
The Speaker, Adebo Ogundoyin, in his remarks before approving the suspension of Fasasi ordered Fasisi to step aside with immediate effect to allow concerned committee carry out comprehensive investigation on all allegations levelled against him.
