These allegations were presented by six councilors who petitioned the House, citing his alleged misconduct. State Assembly Speaker Jubril Ismail Falgore explained, “The council chairman was accused of making unilateral decisions without involving the councillors.”
In response, the Assembly formed an ad hoc committee to investigate the claims thoroughly, with a report expected within two months. Meanwhile, the Vice-Chairman of Gwale Local Government Council will assume control for the next three months. This suspension aims to ensure a fair and impartial inquiry into the allegations against Chairman Khalid Ishaq Diso.
The suspension has sparked varied reactions within the local community. Some view it as a necessary step to address alleged misconduct, while others are awaiting the investigation’s outcome for a clearer perspective.
