......You must unite, don't be a sell out. ALGON charges


The National President of Association of Local Government of Nigeria, Hon. Alabi Kolade David has charged the Oyo State Chapter of the association to be unite in their quest for justice on their dissolution by Gov. Seyi Makinde of the State.

The ALGON President stated this yesterday 28th August, 2019 during his visit to the Oyo state chapter of the association in Ibadan, where he described their dissolution has undemocratic.

Alabi who was accompanied to Our state by the National BOT Chairman and members of the National Executive, said the dissolution of Oyo State Local Government Chairmen by the governor of the state speaks no good of our democractic system.

Alabi said its high time we make democracy more working in Nigeria,
democracy is not working when the Local Government Chairmen are dissolved out of Office illegally.

We will critically look more into the Local Government administration law and come up with our stand on it, which will be equally presented  to the presidency and the National Assembly Leadership. He said


Alabi further advised the Oyo State ALGON leadership to be more constructive and peaceful in their approach and presentation towards actualising victory in and outside the court of law.

He said the case of Ekiti State Local Government Chairmen is a good example of what I am talking about here,  their case was settled out of court and the Governor returned 8 out of  the 16 dissolved Chairmen, which by God's grace in earnest, others are expected to be returned. 

At ALGON national, I wish to inform you that we are strongly with you,  we will do everything possible to support you, we will meet with your Governor soon, and hopefully the situation will be corrected. He said.


The ALGON National BOT Chairman, Hon. Odunayo Ategbero in his goodwill message commended the Oyo ALGON leadership for steps taken so far.

We are satisfied with your steps, we won't relent in our effort to making sure the local government autonomy is accomplished.
With autonomy, tenure is certain. BOT said

The ALGON National Public Relation Officer who is also a sitting local government chairman in Ekiti State, while addressing the Chairmen, said if we truly want to build democracy in Nigeria, and the grassroots is neglected, then we are building it on nothing.

He appealed to the Federal Government to re-brand the  reputation of Nigeria democracy by giving the Local Government all the necessary recognition.

He further advised the Oyo State  ALGON not to be confrontational  with the Governor,  he said in Ekiti, it was a total dialogue and peaceful presentation, and with the support of GOD Almighty and ALGON National Leadership, the Governor was able to reason along, which led to returning some of us back to office.
Therefore, let's take steps that would easy the settlement. He concluded.



The Oyo state ALGON Chairman, Prince Aleshinloye commends the National leadership for their advice, and support, he said they believe so much in the leadership capacity beyond doubt.

We thank you for all your support from day one,  undoubtedly, it is a new dawn for ALGON National. Aleshinloye stated.


Hon. Olaosegba, one of the Local government Chairmen in the state who spoke on behalf of his colleagues also thanked the ALGON National Leadership for their words of motivation, he said, their words will revitalised their efforts and strategies more. 
Hence, we will further take steps that would peacefully bring victory to us. Olaosegba promised.
