EFCC & ICPC Invite Apapa Local Government Chairman by venom121: 12:44pm On Dec 12, 2019
Since the suspension of the ifako ijaye chairman by the Lagos state house assembly, some of the other local government chairmen have
been running helter skelter, not to suffer the same fate. It seems all is not well in Apapa local government, because Mr Elijah Adele who is the chairman was recently invited by the EFCC and ICPC. It seems the commission has also visited the council and are still doing their investigation to ascertain certain facts. Since the invitation by the commission the chairman is claiming to be empowering fictitious people with 100,000 naira per person.

The local government roads are terrible,no visible projects to show and you decide to give money away to people nobody can identify. Others will tell you they were given 5k, while other groups will tell you they got 10,000 naira. So who are the masses collecting 100,000 naira. The other disturbing issue is that while Mr Elijah Adele is the chairman, the former house rep who is the immediate chairman of the council Mr Ayodeji Joseph always comes to the council on a daily basis as if he is still the chairman of the council.

Ikoyi/Obalende LCDA and some other local governments are also on the watch list, It seems most of the chairmen are doing money empowerment to justify how the funds are spent. If they tell you they gave 200,000 people 100,000 naira each how do you confirm it,when the money is paid in cash.

We shall wait and see what will happen next.

When i saw this i knew EFCC will pay attention to this guy

Mr Elijah Adele who is the chairman of Apapa LG council while in London at the time,used council funds to send most of the political office holders and followers to Ghana, because he was to receive an award by an association in that country.While people in the LGA were crying about the state of the roads that is causing gridlock and also the decrease in spending power, the chairman was busy moving the whole apapa LGA to Ghana so they can see him collect an award.

Commendable to Lagos state for calling out crooked LGA chairmen. Should be done nationwide

Also couldn't help noticing grin when you're a smoker of various things no matter the suit and tie you can't hide your lips and eyes grin
