The Appeal Court has decided the appeal in favour of the appellant, Governor Seyi Makinde and the Oyo State Government against Bashorun Bosun Ajuwon, who had instituted the case initially on behalf of the Oyo State chapter of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria, ALGON.

Following the continuous agitation by the All Local Governments of Nigerian (ALGON), Oyo state chapter, over what they described as illegal sacking and inauguration of new Caretaker Chairmen, the Oyo State Government led by Engr Seyi Makinde has challenge the sacked Chairmen to approach competent court of jurisdiction over the appointment of new Caretaker Chairmen.

Recall that The ALGON Chairman, Prince Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye lamented in his new year message with CEOAFRICA the dissolution of the local government councils by the Makinde government and alleged breach of law in the appointment of Caretaker Chairmen.

Makinde and Oyo State had appealed the judgement of the lower court which gave ruling in favour of the sacked chairmen.
