Following a letter by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) asking Governor Seyi Makinde to dissolve the caretaker chairmen in the 33 local government areas of Oyo State, the state government has warned him not to meddle in Oyo council issue.
Speaking through the Attorney-General of Oyo State, Professor Oyelowo Oyewo, in a four-page reply, the government said, the AGF has no business dabbling into the matter of local government dissolution in Oyo State which is pending before the Court of Appeal.
In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa, the government described the statement credited to Malami as uncalled for, misguided and lacking in merit, as far as the constitution of Nigeria is concerned.
The Government of Oyo State led by Seyi Makinde maintained that Malami’s letter dated 14 January 2020, was written without adequate information and knowledge of the current position of the subject matter of dissolution of local government in the State.
