Chief Bisi Ilaka, the Chief of Staff to the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has explained the reasons behind government’s decision to sack the 68 local council chairmen in the state. Also sacked are the elected councilors.

Ilaka said that the sack became necessary because the elections that produced them were illegal and not credible, adding that they emerged as councils’ administrators from the election that contravened a court order.
