Asaba â€” THE Chairman of Sapele local government council, Mr. Godwin Atose, has been suspended by the councill-ors for three months, while Leader of the House, Mrs. Anirah, was impeached.
The councillors, in a motion moved by Mr. Kingsley SajereÂ and seconded by Mr. Efe Mafuro, removed the former leader of the House and suspended the chairman of the council, with over two-third majority of members voting.
Addressing newsmen, the aggrieved councillors, who stormed some media houses in Asaba, said â€œthe chairman was suspended for failure to render statements of income and expenditure to the legislative arm since the inception of his administra-tionâ€.
Following the develop-ment, the councillors told newsmen that â€œthey have set up a committee to investigate the activities of the chairman since inception.
â€œAll banks and financial institutions have accordingly been restrained from honouring any cheques or instruments from the council till futher notice.â€
