The Ekiti State House of Assembly has directed the Chairman of Ikere Local Government, Femi Ayodele to step aside for investigation on an alleged disregard for extant regulations.
The Council Chairman ran into trouble after a Campaign Poster he designed canvassing support for the State Governor, Kayode Fayemi for the 2023 presidential election. The chairman designed the poster with the logo of the All Progressives Congress APC, which went viral early this week.
Governor Fayemi through a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode claimed that he had no any knowledge of the campaign poster neither did he authorise the Council Chairman or any person or group of persons to start a campaign on his behalf.
But in a surprise move, a statement by the Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Yemisi Ayokunle, says the State House of Assembly is asking the Council Chairman to step aside for a thorough investigation into the alleged publication, by the Committee on Chieftaincy and Local Government and to turn in it Report within the next seven days.
