The formerly ousted Executive Chairman of Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government in Lagos Mainland, Apostle Oloruntoba Oke, has finally resumed office amidst the misappropriation mess that once had him removed from office by the members of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

The council boss who was warmly welcomed by the council vice chairman, Hon. Usman Hamzat,  the Secretary to the LG, Pastor Ayo Jeje; the council Manager, Mr. Adewunmi Ogunbambi and other top officials of the council, was elated by the tumultuous cheers of staff and party faithful that witnessed the occasion.

Moreso, Oke held a closed-door meeting with members of the Executive Team of the Council few hours after resuming office with feelers that he was updated of happenings in the council while he was away from office.

The meeting was followed up by a round trip to offices of by top officials of the council within the Aina-Ajobo Headquarters of the local government.

Recall that Oke was removed from office by the Lagos Assembly members following reports of misappropriation of a loan he took of behalf of the Council.

His reinstatement followed the moves by top party leaders as well as stakeholders in the community following the conclusion of investigations into the matter.

The development has since drawn mixed reactions from the opposition party as well as critical stakeholders who believe the matter should be thoroughly investigated and followed by a prosecution.
