Hours after assuming office as the sixth civil Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke has directed career heads of Local Government Areas (LGAs) and Area Councils Development Areas (ACDAs) in the state to take control and charge of their councils.

Naija News reports that the former council chairmen and councillors were sacked. The new directive from Adeleke through his spokesperson, Malam Olawale Rasheed, says the LGA heads are to take full charge of the offices with immediate effect.

“Governor Adeleke also directed the most senior career heads across all the local government areas, to take charge of their councils.

“This is in compliance with the judgment of the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo that sacked the council d Local Government Chairmen and Councilors,” the government said.


It could be recalled that the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, presided by Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel on Friday declared null and void the local government election conducted by the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission, (OSIEC).

Justice Ayo-Emmanuel delivered the judgment based on a PDP suit asking the court to stop OSIEC from conducting the Osun Oct. 15 Local Government election.

The judge, in his judgment, stated that the Local Government election that OSIEC subsequently held was held in contravention of Sections 29 and 32 of the Electoral Act 2022.


Reacting to the ruling, the Chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) in Osun, Abiodun Idowu, called on its members to remain calm and peaceful.

Idowu said the leadership of their party- the All Progressives Congress (APC) and all the chairmen across the 69 LGAs, ACDAs had filed a ‘Notice of Appeal and Stay of Execution’ against the ruling.
