The suspended Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government Area of the state, Mr Wale Adedayo said that he will not react his petition against the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun.
The embattled chairman had petitioned of the state governor, Abiodun that should allow the local governments in the state have access to federal allocations meant to develop the grassroots..
Adedayo was released on Monday after spending three days in the custody of the Department of State Security Services has
According to The PUNCH, he also stressed that he has no regrets about the actions he has so far taken despite his arrest and detention for three days.
Shortly after his release, Adedayo said that he was detained because of a petition sent by Governor Abiodun to the security agency wherein he was alleged to have been making inciting comments that could jeopardise public peace.
The LG boss who was last Thursday suspended by seven councillors in his local government for three months over allegations of maladministration and financial mismanagement however, said that he had told the DSS that there was never a time he made any inciting comments other than the letter written to the former governor of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba where he alleged that Abiodun has not funded the local governments in the state for two years.
The DSS, Adedayo said, “Claimed there is a letter from the governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, that I was making inciting comments against the state government but I told them that there was nothing like that or who did they say I have incited? They said that I was planning a protest but I said I don’t know anything about that and I told them that I had only done what my conscience said that I should and this I did with my other colleagues and chairmen even though they all ran back. My conscience is very clear in the letter I wrote to Chief Olusegun Osoba, the former governor of the state and a national leader of our party, APC.
“Some of the chairmen had input into the letter, I only did the editing of the letter, put my name there, and then sent it and what is written in the letter affects all the council chairmen, so it is not about getting their backing or not. So what the governor wanted me to do was to do a retraction of what the letter contained but I said that I won’t do that.”
