Why Obasa Sacked His Chief Of Staff, CPS, Two Other Aides

By  | 

In what appeared to be a major political shake-up, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa sacked his Chief of Staff, Saka Fafunmi, Chief Press Secretary, Tolani Abati, and two other aides, on Tuesday.

The other affected aides include the speaker’s Special Adviser on Research and Planning, Oriyomi Oladimeji, and the Special Adviser on Political and Legislative Affairs, Hon Dayo Famakinwa.

Though the purpose for their sacking wasn’t disclosed, there are, however, indications that the decision was prompted by Obasa’s resolve to restructure his inner caucus, particularly in terms of the political loyalty of his aides.

It would be recalled that the speaker has been battling with a number of problems since his reemergence in 2019.

Series of allegations have been leveled against him which include financial misappropriation of funds and high-handedness.

Last October, he was invited for questioning by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
