ALGON-IMC decry ALGOVC National Conference/Award Night

Must read

  • Says Kolade Alabi does not deserve any leadership award
  • We are not party to such preposterous conference
  • Caution your Vice Chairmen- IMC to Chairmen

The Interim Management Committee of Association of Local Government of Nigeria on Wednesday decried plans made by the ALGOVC to host its fourth Annual National Conference/ Award Night in Abuja.

According to report, the Association of Local Government Vice Chairmen of Nigeria (ALGOVC) had sent out invites of the event to chairmen, vice chairmen and other high end dignitaries in the country.

Reacting to the details of the event, the IMC led by Hon. Abdullahi Shuaibu Maje, Chairman of Suleja Local Government Area of Niger State condemned the plans made by the ALGOVC to present an award to Hon. Kolade Alabi stating that Alabi is very undeserving of such leadership award as he during his forced regime in office as the National President of the Association, connived with some officers to perpetuate injustice and fraudulent practices that has left the good name of the association in the mud.

Maje during his address to newsmen in Abuja described the ALGOVC event as one aimed towards encouraging shady and undeserving public stewards to continue in their path of doom and no return. He disclosed that the IMC under his leadership cannot sit back and watch men who have sown on an infertile ground during their regime reap from a fertile ground.

He said “It is unfounded and highly preposterous that the Association of Local Government Vice Chairmen of Nigeria (ALGOVC) is set to award Hon. Kolade David Alabi, even after a competent court of jurisdiction, suspended him from parading himself as National President of ALGON. We are yet to understand the basis for such award, perhaps it’s an award solely gotten on the ills of the numerous fraudulent practices of Alabi and his cohort as he does not and will never deserve such award of leadership.

“It is also painful that Chairmen and Vice Chairmen who are supposed to be voices of those they represent in the grassroots level, are partisans to such misdemeanor; Where will the quest of President Buhari to nip corruption in the bud be if men of incompetence and less substance are allowed to parade as public stewards with awards from major forum, organizations backing their shortcomings and underperformance? He asked.

The IMC however urged chairmen and vice chairmen to disregard the event as they shouldn’t be seen identifying with a man who does not have the legal binding to head an association entrusted with the mandate of sustaining good governance at the local government level.
