The former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, made this declarationÂ Â at the local government training conference, tagged Energising GrassrootsÂ Democracy, yesterday at LTV 8, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos State.
He stated that the days councillors are seen as errand boys or servants are longÂ gone. â€œDo not look at your councillors as errand boys,â€ Tinubu warned.
The governor stated further that councillors must cooperate and collaborate with theÂ interest of the community they represent. He said â€œcouncillors must not be theÂ irritating ants, you must not be the cockroaches in the kitchen.â€
He linked the victory attained at Osun and Ekiti states a good things yet to comeÂ and good judgement of the rule of law.Â He said â€œwithout men and women of conscienceÂ on the bench, we would not have achieved this.â€
