The Osun State House of Assembly has suspended the Chairman of Ife North Local Government Area, Ipetumodu, Hassan Orosanya, over gross misconduct.

The Speaker of the Assembly, Timothy Owoeye, told newsmen on Tuesday that Orosanya was suspended at the executive session of the parliament on Monday.

Speaking through his Press Secretary, Kunle Alabi, Owoeye explained that the parliament had directed the Clerk of the House to formally write Orosanya to inform him of its resolution.

A letter intimating the local government boss of his suspension, signed by the Speaker, said Orosanya failed to explain how substantial funds of the local government were expended.

“After a thorough deliberation on the notification of vote of no confidence passed by the parliamentarians of the Ife North Local Government on the Chairman, Taiwo Orosanya, and submitted to the Honourable House, the state of House of Assembly hereby resolves:

“That Hon. Taiwo Hassan Orosanya, having failed to explain to the satisfaction of the House how substantial funds of the local government were expended, was found guilty of gross misconduct leveled against him and should vacate his office as chairman of the council and handover to the vice-chairman (who will function in meeting capacity) for a period of two months effective from Monday, May 4, to Friday, July 5, 2020, in line with the provisions of Section 11 of the State of Osun Local Government Areas (Creation and Administration) Law, 2015,” the letter read.

Efforts to get Orosanya’s reaction proved futile, as calls to his mobile line rang out, while he did not also respond to text message sent to him.
