The former Chairman Lagos State House of Assembly Services Commission, Mr. Wale Mogaji has threatened to seek redress in court following his sack by Lagos State House of Assembly.
In a press statement made available to LEADERSHIP Sunday he said, “It is very sad that our democracy has been bastardized with the conduct of those who are supposed to ensure the rule of law and the sanctity of justice”.
According to him, the Speaker without recourse to the service rules has been operating the commission like a unit of the Assembly.
‘’For instance he said the speaker, appointed Mr Onafeko on GL- 15 as Clerk of the House whereas, to be appointed as a clerk of the house knowing fully well that it is only, a full Director on GL-17 that can be so appointed just as another woman, Mrs Latona on GL-15 was appointed secretary of the commission,’’.
He described the appointments as one of the few unilateral actions taken by the speaker to obstruct the activities of the Commission adding that any attempt to advise the speaker is seen as an affront.
