POLITICS: Drama as Oshiomhole Swears-in Local Govt. Chairman, Suspends Him Minutes After

It was a dramatic twist in Benin, Edo State on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 as Governor Adams Oshiomhole, swore in Mr. Alhassan Mohammed as Chairman, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state for and then a few minutes after suspended him for two months . Mr. Mohammed was sworn-in as the new chairman, following the death of the former chairman of the Local Government, Alhaji Hassan Kadiri, on Friday, May 20, 2015. However the Governor decided to immediately suspend him due to allegations that he fomented a protest against the late former Chairman, Alhaji Kadiri, trying to get him to step down while he (Kadiri) was battling for his life, a battle he lost.
The Governor has directed the new vice chairman of the Local Government, Mr. Busari Yusuf, to act as the interim chairman pending the findings of a panel of enquiry to investigate the allegations against the newly sworn-in/suspended chairman.

Speaking on Tuesday, May,26,2015 at the swearing-in ceremony, the Governor said: “I have just performed the task of swearing in the vice chairman of Etsako West Local Government as the substantive chairman of the local government following the death of the chairman, Alhaji Hassan Kadiri who passed away last week Friday.
“This afternoon I have performed a task with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I had the privilege of having to swear in a Chairman and on the other hand I am pained by the loss of someone who worked so hard for this party and who believed so much in his community but what made me even more sad is the fact that there were controversies as to what happened the very day that Hassan passed away.

“Some disgruntled elements whether they were masquerading as student union government officials or they were just touts and thugs, were hired by some persons to organise a protest that was almost turning violent such that they had to bring in the police and even the army to intervene to restore peace in the local government.”

Governor Oshiomhole continued, “I was informed that the purpose of this protest was that Hassan on his sick bed should be relieved of his duties as chairman so that the vice chairman could take over his job. I do not think human beings should play God. Today, I am hale and hearty and I thank God for being here to be able to sign what I have to sign, this is not by my strength, it is only by the grace of God.

But what will become of me in the next hour I cannot say, I can only pray that I remain strong and healthy and I guess my story is the story of every human being.
