This was as a result of the adoption of the recommendations of the joint committee of the Assembly on Public Petition and Local Governments that were recently directed to look into a petition submitted to the assembly by eight suspended council chairmen in the state.

The Chairman of the Public Petition Committee, Hon Adegoke Olajide, while presenting the petition said the eight chairmen on suspension(8 were earlier reinstated) made a plea to the assembly for the review of their indictment and possible reinstatement.

According to the chairmen, they diverted funds of their councils on monthly basis to an account but said the action was in compliance with the directive of Fayose.
