The Interim Management Committee on Tuesday distanced itself from leadership of the Forum of Mobile Advert Practitioners of Nigeria, Otunba Mike O. Eboziegbe on the basis of compromisation.

According to earlier report, leadership of the Interim Management Committee engaged the activities of the forum to act as taskforce of enforcement on the use of the emblem against multiple taxation which was implemented to provide safety, security, surveillance, logistic support and emergency rescue on Nigerian roads, an action which is line with the constitutional responsibility of Nigerian Local governments as enshrined in the 4th Schedule of the 1999 Constitution (As Amended).
Describing the forum as one which has been compromised in a statement made available to newsmen, the IMC decried moves made by Otunba to sabotage plans it had already set in motion urging the general public to be wary of the above mentioned person.

It read: “The Interim Management Committee of ALGON is on this day and by this press statement, distancing itself from the activities of the Forum of Mobile Advert Practitioners under the leadership of one Mr. Otunba Mike O. Eboziegbe, the said person who was earlier contracted to act as an intermediary between the association and concerned stakeholders on issues as regards to multiple taxation, breached contract and also involved himself with the Alabi led faction, all in a bid to utilize the crisis besieging the association to generate funds for himself and cronies.

“Otunba was engaged by the IMC and letter of engagement conveyed to him on the 8th day of December, 2021, in furtherance to enabling the forum carryout its activities appropriately, a newspaper publication was even made on a National Daily Vanguard Newspapers precisely on the 19th day of January 2022, disclaiming the illegal activities of Joint Mobile Sanitation Agency of Nigeria (JOMSAN), still went against the terms of agreement with aim of tarnishing the image of the IMC through his involvement with the debunked illegal faction under the management of Hon. Kolade David Alabi of Bariga Local Development Area Council in Lagos.

“We are amazed at how Otunba allowed himself to be easily swayed to follow the path of injustice because of few peanuts; what happened to his claims of wanting to uphold justice? Perhaps everyman has a price. Furthermore, to ensure that our stand is respected, we have also written a petition of falsification, connivance, fraud and threat to life against the forum to the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of the Department of State Security in this regard.” It added.
