Secretary-General of Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) Mrs. Binta A. Bello has described the rumored sack of its National President, Kolade Alabi David as an absolute falsehood, saying that it is the handiwork of some mischief makers and enemies of progress to the association.

Mrs. Bello, however, called on the general public to regard the information as false and baseless.

It will be recalled that a purported resolution signed by one ALGON National Publicity Secretary, Andrew Alu which states that Kolade Alabi David has been sacked by an unofficial NEC meeting in Abuja lacked credibility.

The same Andrew Alu-led group also claimed the Deputy National Chairman and Chairman of Soba Local government area of Kaduna state, Mahmud Mohammed Aliyu was appointed as Kolade Alabi David’s replacement.

ALGON in a statement issued by the Secretary-General Mrs. Binta A. Bello described the scandalous assertion as unfortunate and attempt to embarrass the association and its president

On his own, the National Deputy President of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) Hon. Mohammed Aliyu, in a separate, released debunked the rumored of taken over the leadership of ALGON.

According to the rejoinder, I Hon. Mohammed Aliyu do without fear of contradiction state that I was not at the purported “National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of September 06, 2019 held at “NICON HOTELS” and could not have been part of a mischievous characters/gangsters plot to ridicule an established body like ours.

“I never heard nor was I invited/informed about their scandalous intention. I affirm loyalty to the body of ALGON and particularly to my national President, Hon. Kolade David Alabi and the entire leadership of ALGON as constituted on March 28th, 2019.”

Also, the Secretary-General Mrs. Binta A. Bello in the released on Monday in Abuja read thus: “My attention has been drawn to an alleged meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) held on 6th of September 2019, during which the National President, Hon. Kolade Alabi was said to have been removed from the office.

“I write to categorically state that no such meeting was held. As the Secretary-General of the Association, the responsibilities of processing the convening of such a meeting is vested on me or delegated by me and neither of the two happened. It is therefore rather unfortunate that some mischief makers claimed that such a meeting took place.

“I, therefore, call upon the general public to regard the information as false. Hon. Kolade David Alabi is still the incumbent National President of ALGON.

“ I urge ALGON staff to guide against passing false information and remain loyal to the leadership of ALGON headed by the National President, Hon. Kolade David Alabi as constituted on March 28th, 2019.Hon. Mohammed Aliyu, the National Deputy President of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) do without fear of contradiction state that I was not at the purported “National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of September 06, 2019 held at “NICON HOTELS” and could not have been part of a mischievous characters/gangsters plot to ridicule an established body like ours.

“I never heard nor was I invited/informed about their scandalous intention. I affirm loyalty to the body of ALGON and particularly to my national President, Hon. Kolade David Alabi and the entire leadership of ALGON as constituted on March 28th, 2019.”
