Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has ordered the immediate suspension of the Chairman of the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission, Mr. Segun Oladitan.
According to a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Tesleem Igbalaye, on Monday, the governor also suspended six members of the Commission with immediate effect.
The suspension was said to have been based on several petitions bothering on financial impropriety, dereliction of duty, absenteeism and abuse of office against the said Chairman and members of the Commission.
