Councillors suspend Kogi LG boss

The Chairman of Adavi Local Government Area of Kwara State, Mr. Adaviruku Salihu, has been  suspended  for three months by the council’s  legislators  for alleged gross misconduct .

The suspension notice, signed by all the 11 members of the legislature,  was said to have been handed over to Salihu.

The Adavi LG lawmakers were said have unanimously agreed on the suspension at  their sitting on Wednesday.

They stated that the  suspension, which took effect from Wednesday, was to enable the legislators to investigate series of complaints about Salihu’s handling of the council funds since he assumed  office more than one year ago.

A  source in the LG, who pleaded anonymity, stated that the suspension was  not unconnected  with the alleged non-compliance with the directive of the governor, Capt. Idris Wada (retd.), that all the 21 LGA in the state should pay full salaries to their staff as  the federal allocations to the LGs had  improved.

Salihu’s suspension is coming less than three weeks after the chairman of Deign LGA, Mr. Mohammed Ali,  was also suspended


by his council legislators.
