“Being an executive of EPU is to serve ,no monetary benefit is attach to the service, I wonder why people are so much interested in the election at all cost.

“I am afraid if politicians are not barred from influencing decisions in EPU ,the future may be disastrous” he said.

Ibrahim Isola in his own reaction berated the aide to Governor Oyetola saying what he did was a total disrespect to the presence of Elerin and his chiefs-in council.

Earlier speaking with our correspondent, chairman of the electoral committee, Adelani Aderinola described the incident that led to the suspension of electing new leaders of EPU as worrisome.

When asked on the possibility of appointing new executive if election fails to hold, Aderinola said the community can decide on that if they wish so.

Blaze Newz gathered that the EPU election after it could not hold members of the EPU Board of Trustees chaired by Chief Moses Faniyi was given the mandate to start acting as interim exco.

Chief Faniyi while accepting the interim exco promised that his leadership will restore peace in the union,adding that election will hold before 2022 Easter celebration.
