PostSubject: Oshiomhole swears in, suspends new LG chairman   2015-05-27, 03:31

The Edo State Governor, Adams
Oshiomhole, on Tuesday
suspended the Chairman of Etsako
West Local Government Area,
Alhassan Mohammed, for two
months, few minutes after he was
sworn in as the chairman of the
area.
Governor Oshiomhole explained
that the suspension followed
controversies surrounding the
death of the former chairman of the
area, Alhaji Hassan Kadiri, who died
last Friday, the same day a protest
was organised against him (Kadiri)
over his ill-health.
He also directed the new Vice
Chairman of the local government,
Busari Yusuf, to act as the interim
Chairman, pending the outcome of
a panel of enquiry set up to
investigate the allegations of
complicity against Mohammed.
While condemning the protest,
Oshiomhole said, “I am informed
that the purpose of this protest was
that Hassan, on his sick bed, should
be relieved of his duties as
Chairman, so that the vice chairman
could take over his job. I do not
think human beings should play
God.
“So, for me, it is absolutely
unacceptable that anyone will be
so desperate as to instigate
another to protest against a man
that is bedridden and admitted in
the hospital fighting for his life. Our
jobs are worthless without life and
all of us have our dates to depart
this planet earth.
“So, for anyone to organize protest
against someone who is
bedridden; that he should be
forced out of office so that another
person will get promotion is
unethical and absolutely
unacceptable and to publicly
organise protest against the sick,
making unprintable statements,
disturbing the public peace and
mobilising people to do things that
are capable of leading to riots with
the possibility of even death. That,
for me, is the height of
irresponsibility and I do not think
any civilised government will
condone that.”
“I do not have all the facts as to
who are responsible for these
protests but I know there was a
protest that could have easily
destabilised the entire local
government with serious
implications for community
relations. Though we know the
characters that were on the street,
at least some of them, we do not
know the characters behind those
who were on the street.
“The name of the former vice
chairman, who is now the chairman,
has been mentioned by several
persons as being responsible for
financing and instigating students,
who are supposed to be on
vacation to come back like a
general purpose vehicle to carry
out those protests in order to force
the resignation or the removal of
the chairman that was bedridden.”
