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.
