Malami writes Makinde to reinstate sacked ALGON membersAttorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami Wale Oyewale, Ibadan The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Justice Abubakar Malami (SAN), has asked Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State to reverse the dissolution of local government administration in the state. This was contained in a letter dated January 14, 2020, addressed to the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in Oyo State, Prof. Oyewo Oyelowo. The letter, marked HAGF/OYO/2020/Vol.I/I., was titled, ‘Unconstitutionality of dissolution of elected local government councils and appointment of caretaker committee: the urgent need for compliance with extant judicial decisions.’ The AGF said in view of the decision of the Supreme Court on the matter that is binding on all the 36 states of the federation, “The common practice by some state governors in dissolving elected local government councils is unconstitutional, null and void. “So, any system of local government run by caretaker committee is illegal and unconstitutional. “I hereby request all state governors and speakers of state House of Assembly, who are currently acting in breach of the provisions of Section 7(1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and also acting in disobedience of the Supreme Court judgment highlighted above to immediately retrace their step by ensuring compliance with the above in the overall interest of the rule of law and our democracy. “The need to immediately disband all caretaker committee and restore democratically elected representatives to man the local governments has, therefore, become obligatory. “Mr President and other relevant agencies will be advised further on compliance measures that should be taken in national interest.” READ ALSO: Copies of the letter were sent to the Inspector-General of Police; Director-General, DSS; acting Chairman of the EFCC and the NFIU. However, Taiwo Adisa, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, said he had not seen the letter. He said whenever he saw it, he would know the appropriate response. But the Chairman of ALGON in Oyo State, Prince Ayodeji Abass – Aleshinloye, said, “We are glad with this development.” The local government chiefs were sacked by the governor and new caretaker committees were inaugurated barely two months ago for the councils.

'You can make laws in your office' SEYI makinde to Malami 'Laws aren't made in AGF office' Gov Akeredolu Something is wrong somewhere Malami is right on this. I hope he will do same to his APC governors. Sacking of elected local government chairmen by state governors is an impunity that must be stopped. Can the President sack an elected state governor?
Malami is playing politics on seyi just bcos of the amotekun issue. Malami gradually going the way of National disgrace. MalamiSan if you want anything done follow due process.

‘How Malami is enhancing anti-graft war’ – Daily TrustThe Anti-Corruption and Research Based Data Initiative (ARDI) has said the anti-corruption efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari received significant boost with the role of the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) in the past five years. Executive Secretary of the organisation, Chief Dennis Aghanya, lauded the AGF’s “coordinated prosecution of corruption suspects, recovery … A Government paid Media House. Liars!
Malami you are not the Court, you are just a cabinet appointee like any commissioner of a state. Let the ALGON members go to the court. And the matter between LGA and STATE is before state jurisdiction. Oga, you are passing your boundary .. MalamiSan should as well put AAAjimobi APC kangaroo local gov't elections to sit illegal Chairmen after 7years of his 8yrs in office into reasoning! just to implant moles!
Where were you when Ajumobi refused to conduct the Local Government Elections in the state until towards the end of his tenure? .. MalamiSan should as well put AAAjimobi/APC kangaroo local gov't elections to sit illegal Chairmen after 7years of his 8yrs in office into reasoning! just to implant moles!
I presume this should be an advise. It's time to set records straight and courts should judge without biases. Malami has made himself the court of law! He is one of the greatest obstacle to rule of law and that is why pmb reappointed him because he also is a lover of obstacle to rule of law
