LEADER OF AKUKU-TORU LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY SHUNS COUNCIL CHAIRMAN, ROWLAND SEKIBO
….also commissioning of legislative building
There appears to be a cold war brewing between the Leader of Akuku-Toru Legislative Assembly, SIBO-OFORI LAWSON JACK and the chairman of the council, ROWLAND CHARLES SEKIBO.
Sources said the cold war is as a result of what the legislative Leader, SOIBO-OFORI LAWSON JACK and some others described as highhandedness, intimidation and flagrant disregard for the councillors by the executive chairman of Akuku-Toru LGA, ROWLAND CHARLES SEKIBO.
ROLAND SEKIBO is also accused of undermining the authorities and powers of the legislators as well as deploying divide and rule tactics, thereby, creating factions in the House.
The running battle between the two political actors in the Akuku-Toru local government council may snowball into full blown war, if not checked, a resident opined.
The alleged cold war became a public knowledge and visible to the blind and loud to the deaf on Friday, October 1st, when the leader shunned the council chairman’s commissioning programme of the renovated Legislative Assembly at Obonoma community.
Brave Views correspondent reports that the announcement of the absence of the legislative leader by the Master of Ceremonies (MC), during a critical programme of commissioning of the renovated building for councillors jilted the visitors.
It may interest you to know that the Akuku-Toru Legislative Building was built by TAMMY DAGOGO, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), when he was the council chairman.
When contacted in a telephone interview, Leader of the Legislative Assembly, SIBO-OFORI LAWSON JACK confirmed his absence at the programme but noted that he was there in spirit.
He promised to return our call to talk more on the matter.
