Following Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s, decision this week to extend the suspension of the executive and legislative council committees across the 16 local government areas of the state by another six months, there is fear that the local government chairmen may have perfected plans to confront his administration.
It would be recalled that when the chairmen were suspended last year for alleged financial infraction, they organised a peaceful protest and described their suspension as illegal.

Now that the is extending the suspension of governor for the second time, there is fear that the suspended council bosses have resolved to take what an aide to one of them described as a “a more practical approach of fighting for our rights. We can no longer sit down at home thinking it will bring about peace,” he said.
