The local government chairmen were elected for two years during the last administration, but were later suspended last year by the immediate past assembly in the state over alleged misappropriation of funds.

However, based on a petition by the chairmen, the current legislature under the Speakership of Mr Funminiyi Afuye ordered their reinstatement, while others were recommended for prosecution by the State Attorney General.

A visit to some of the council secretariats by NAN revealed that none of chairmen was in office.

Some of the affected chairmen told NAN that they were still waiting for directive from Gov. Kayode Fayemi, while one said she was currently out of the country.

However, the Coordinating Directors in charge of councils were seen on duty against the pronouncement of the House.
