The Chairman of Olorunda Local Government in the state of Osun, Munirudeen Anisu has been petitioned for financial misappropriation, financial Reckness and misconduct. 

The Parliamentarians made this known in a three page petition against him AND was made available to newsmen in State of Osun on Monday 23rd December, 2019.

The Chairman was accused of duplicating, jots and inflating expenditure since inception of office two years ago.

He was specifically accused of embezzling one month allowance of board members to the tune of N1.9 million apart from inflating a road rehabilitation project of N130,000 to N1.3 million.

The petition read in parts, "At this juncture, we concerned councillors boldly took this Paregoric stand to the notice of general public."

"Before it is too late, we concerned Councilors/Parliamentarians of Olorunda Local Government Igbona Osogbo, wish to inform the people of Olorunda Local Government about the Financial Misappropriation and Financial Misconduct of Hon. Hammed Munirudeen Oluwafemi Locally Anisu, Chairman Olorunda Local Government Area, Igbona Osogbo since inception of our administration in February, 2018 till date which is strictly against Osun State House of Assembly guidelines for the administration of Local Government Areas, Local Council Development Areas, Area Council and Administration Offices in the State of Osun."

"The leadership of Hon. Anisu has not been able to complete a single developmental project since inception, despite several millions of naira received into the account of Local Government from both Statutory Allocation and Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).Rather, his priority has been based on arbitrary and frivolous spending without any Executive Meeting cum Council/Parliamentarian approval which is contrary to Page10, Sec3.4(x) of the guidelines."

"He does this in order to create rooms for arbitrary spend Local Government Fund lavishly which against Page 10, Sec3.4 (iii).
Lack of adhering to due process in implementing policies are major bane of retrogression of our administration that seems contrariwise to the law established the present system of government at the local level according to Page1, Sec1&1.2of the guidelines."

"Therefore, this notice also indicates our observations/ allegations on the financial recklessness of the chairman."

These are his misconducts:-
Frustration of the Executive Committee Meeting and obstruction of Parliamentarian sitting since beginning of our tenure. It was only one sitting that took place on 19th of October 2018 that is contrary to the extant law of Osun House of Assembly Local Government guidelines.

"He does this in order to create rooms for arbitrary spend Local Government Fund lavishly which against Page 10, Sec3.4 (iii).
Lack of adhering to due process in implementing policies are major bane of retrogression of our administration that seems contrariwise to the law established the present system of government at the local level according to Page1, Sec1&1.2of the guidelines."

"Failure to present the monthly/quarterly income and expenditure of revenue from both Statutory Allocation and Internally Generated Revenue which also violated extant law on Page 11, Sec3.4 (v) of the guidelines."

"Ineptitude attitude of the chairman denies us to embark on programme that has direct impact to the electorate."

"As a result of this, unilateral decision which is contrary to extant guidelines made us to perform woefully."

"Several projects claimed to be executed with millions of naira are not on ground without the council approval which also violated Page3, Sec2.2.2 (iii) of the guidelines."

"Diversion/Misappropriation of fund attributed for a particular purpose of administration in the local government for personal use, with this act of fraudulent attitudes, Page2&3, Sec (i-vi) have spelt out the modus operandi.
Unlawful award of contract is an everyday decision of the chairman without recourse to the parliament for appropriate scrutiny/ screening of the contract. Page3, Sec2.2.2 (iii) of guideline stipulates that vetting and monitoring the implementation of projects and programme in the Annual Budget of the Local Government Area/ LCDA is the major oversight functions.
Duplication and Inflation of expenditures since inception of office, these showcase lack of transparency and accountability of the chairman that could endanger administration of our dear Local Government achievements."

"Conniving with other stake holders among councilors in order to undermine the extant law in the guideline."

"Avoidance of routine meeting that could bring about development considers to be cavalier in nature
Using Local Government name to get undue benefit from the public at the detriment of the masses akin to supercilious behavior and abandonment of the integral action plans of the State Government."

It would be observed that the main reason for the establishment of Local Government is basically to bring viable development to the grass roots but reverse is the case under the leadership of Hon. Munirudeen Anisu.

At this juncture, we concerned Councilors/Parliamentarians boldly took this patriotic stand  to the notice of general public, some of the excessive/ inordinate actions of the chairman , Olorunda Local Government Igbona Osogbo, State of Osun, Hon. Munirudeen  Anisu. We cannot fold our arms watching the chairman to draw our Local Government back as one of the municipal Local Government in the state capital.

To worsened the situation, Hon.Munirudeen Hammed Anisu has not presented income and expenditure Local Government Parliament from April, 2019 till date
These are the frivolous expenditures by the Chairman between August 2018 to March 2019:

Inflation of renovated burn Chairman and Council Manager Office, cost #15,000,000.00(fifteen million Naira only) without accounting for breakdown as to detail the expenditure incurred. Payment still ongoing in regarding to the renovated building.

False acquisition of Motorcycle for Olorunda Youths, with the value of =N=400,000.00 (four hundred thousand Naira only), no matching items to correspond the payment.

Failure to give account of =N= 3,000,000 received for grading of roads in the Local Government Area as his stewardship and accountability.

Spending huge sum of resource on purchase of rams,rice,vegetable and other gift items for Muslim during 2018 Ramadan and Ileya Festival as well as purchase of gift items for CAN i.e. Christian amounted to =N=15,765,000 which, we believe to be too outrageous and fraudulent. The above allegations are the tip of iceberg.

The under listed councilors hereby give the chairman, Hon. Munirudeen Anisu Seven (7) days ultimatum to respond to the above allegations of fund misappropriation/embezzlement since assumption of office in 2018. We hereby pass vote of no confidence on the chairman and failure to respond within the time framed other drastic action would be taken against you by reporting the matter to EFCC and ICPC.
