Omo Eko Pataki Forum, an association of Lagos State indigenes, has condemned the appointment of Olalekan Onafeko as the Acting Clerk of the Lagos State House of Assembly, describing the appointment as totally unacceptable.
Onafeko’s appointment was announced on September 28.
However, the Forum in a statement by a member of its Board of Trustees and former Minister of Communication, General Tajudeen Olanrewaju, on Tuesday, described the appointment as totally unacceptable.
“This is totally unacceptable. There are a lot of indigenous Lagos State natives who are capable to fill the appointment. This one appointment begs the issue at stake”.
“The State Assembly has not set a good example. Overwhelming majority of the members are non indigenes and have brought nothing beneficial or significant to the people of Lagos. Most of the laws passed by the House have benefitted only a few mandarins.
Olanrewaju, who is also former GOC 3rd Armoured Division, said: “This appointment must not stand. It is time Lagosians began to fill vacant places and spaces. The State Assembly should redeem its public policy image against the indigenes”.
