Ogun LG Chair Impeached by Councillors Following Accusations Against Gov Abiodun

Five councillors in Ijebu East Local Government have reportedly voted to impeach Wale Adedayo, the chairman of the council.

Adedayo had previously accused Governor Dapo Abiodun of diverting council funds in a letter to former Governor Olusegun Osoba and anti-graft agencies. The governor denied these allegations.

The council chairman had already faced suspension from the councillors and detention by the Department of State Services (DSS) for allegedly making inciting statements.

On Thursday, shortly after Adedayo appeared before the legislative council at the secretariat in Ogbere, five out of the 11 councillors in Ijebu-East announced his impeachment.

During his nearly two-hour appearance, Adedayo was questioned about the allegations of mismanagement against him. Fasheyi Akindele, the leader of Ijebu East Legislative Council, issued a statement reporting that five councillors supported Adedayo’s impeachment, four opposed it, and one abstained.

The statement also alleged that Adedayo had confessed to all the allegations of fund misappropriation against him during his appearance before the legislative council.

The councillors of Ijebu East Local Government of Ogun State, earlier today, impeached the suspended chairman of the local government, Hon. Wale Adedayo, over allegations of financial misappropriation and diversion of council funds, among other allegations made against him.

“The suspended chairman owned up before the full house of 11 councillors that he diverted federal allocations sent to the council by the state government and used them for purposes other than what the state government approved,” the statement reads partly.

The statement claimed that, having been found to have run afoul of the laws of the land, “therefore, the Leader of the House pronounced Mr Wale Adedayo impeached as the Chairman of Ijebu East LG.” 

When reached for comment, Adedayo stated that he did not admit to any of the allegations. 

They were going to set up a committee, which was expected to look at the files in the office. But after I left, things changed,” he said.
