Former ALGON Chairman in Oyo State, Prince Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye (MDII), has charged Governor Seyi Makinde to obey the Supreme court judgement, which ordered the governor to pay all the salaries and allowances of chairmen and councillors he sacked during his inauguration in 2019.
Aleshinloye stated this while mourning the death of former Chairman, Ibadan South East Local Government Area, Hon Bimbo Omiyale.
Omiyale died on Sunday morning after a protracted illness.
In a statement made available to newsmen by his media office on Sunday, the former ALGON boss said some of the former chairmen and councillors have died due to lack of fund to take care of themselves and meet up with their medical bills, adding that the death of Omiyale has brought the number of those who have lost their lives since their removal from office in 2019 to 27.
Aleshinloye expressed his heartfelt condolences to Omiyale’s family, former council chairmen under the administration of late Governor Abiola Ajimobi, known as Forum 68 and the people of Ibadan South East Local Government Area.
“We received the news of Omiyale’s death with a rude shock, sadness and disbelief. He was a strong, dedicated and loyal member of our forum.
“He was a gentleman who contributed to the growth and development of his community and local government area. He would be greatly missed by his political associates and those close to him,” the ex-ALGON boss said.
Omiyale would be buried, according to Islmaic rites, at his residence in Ibadan by 4pm on Sunday.
Aleshinloye prayed that God will accept the deceased’s soul and grant his family and friends the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
