The Kwara State House of Assembly has recommended the suspension of 16 Local Government council chairmen over alleged embezzlement of N33 billion.
This followed a resolution of the House after it considered a petition written by one Seidu Aliyu and presented at plenary on Monday.
The House leader, Abubakar Olawoyin, tabled the petition, which was unanimously considered after a debate, prompting the lawmakers to recommend the suspension of the local government councils.
According to the petitioner, the council chairmen had mismanaged and misappropriated the said sum received from the Federation Accounts in the last two years.
Subsequently, the House leader called for a thorough investigation of the council chairmen in view of the alleged misconduct.
