Oyo ALGON Proceed To Supreme Court, Rejects Appeal Court Judgement

The Oyo State Association of Local Government Official, ALGON" rejected the Appeal Court ruling of legal tussle between Oyo Government and the Elected Chairmans.

According to information reported by the Oyo State chapter of the Association of Local Government Official, ALGON" under the Chairmanship of Hon Prince Ayodeji Abass Aleshinloye, that they will proceed to the Supreme Court because the course of justice in Appeal Court was not served.

How ever Hon, Ayodeji Aleshinloye disclosed that the crux of the judgement was a subtle hibernation in legal technicality without due consideration of the hard facts of the issues and the valid points of law.

He further explained that if your Lordships opined that the perpetual injunction against disolution of Oyo State ALGON that we got last year from Justice Aderemi of High Court was speculative.

Then the question to ask is; was the local government election held in accordance with the Oyo State electoral law also speculative? 

Was the mandate freely given us by the people is also speculative? Answers to these valid questions on point of law cannot and must be yes but NO. And It is trite in law that governors or state assemblies cannot dissolve elected local government just like federal cannot dissolve state government, so this position had been reinforced many times by the Supreme Court.

Prince Aleshinloye maintain that As elected chairmen, vice chairmen and councilors, we are ready to defend democracy and our freely given mandate legally, peacefully and Accordingly until justice is done and seen to be done, so we here by reject the judgement and we shall proceed to the Supreme Court for a review, Our lawyers have been informed to take the necessary action.

Mean while the Appeal Court sitting in Ibadan Oyo State capital on Wednesday ruled in favor of the state government that the perpetual injunction got by ALGON was speculative.

I pray God should settle the matter
