The Lagos State House of Assembly has adopted the recommendations of the Committee on Local Government Administration and Chieftaincy Affairs and Rural Development to suspend Azeez Dawodu, a councillor in the Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area.

The resolution was part of recommendations at Thursday, February 22, plenary presided over by the deputy speaker, Meranda Mojisola.

The committee Chairman, Ganiu Okanlawon, who read the recommendations, advised that councilors should have a harmonious working relationship with the chairman and council leaders.

The committee also recommended that the council leader should ensure peace and unity among the councillors.

It also recommended scrapping of the Office of the Deputy Majority Leader which was created by the council leader.

According to the committee, there was no provision for such in the law guiding local governments in the state.

Furthermore, the committee recommended that priority should be given to the construction of a modern and befitting legislative chamber for the legislators in the council’s Y2024 budget, and the clerk should always take directives from the leader of the council.
