Lagos Council Chairperson Confirms N650,000 BIrthday Aso Ebi, But ….



The Chairperson of Ikosi Isheri Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, Mrs Samiat Bada, has denied online allegations of forcing council staff to buy N650,000 ‘aso ebi’ fabric, for her forthcoming 50th birthday.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) a group had accused Bada of allegedly forcing councillors, supervisors and workers to buy the fabrics, among other allegations.

Addressing the media at the council secretariat in Lagos on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, Mrs. Bada, described the allegations as completely false and baseless.

“I stand before you today to address the recent allegations that have been circulating on social media in which the writer claimed that I imposed an N650,000.00 Aso Ebi, traditional fabrics, on my staff,” she said. 

“I want to categorically state that these allegations are completely false and baseless. Since assuming office, I have prioritised the welfare and working conditions of my staff.”

Bada, however, admitted that her friends and associates from abroad were the ones that decided to choose the N650,000 fabrics among themselves to celebrate her birthday coming up in December 2023.

The Lagos council chairperson, however, said there was no formal invitation to her staff for the birthday or of them being forced to buy the Aso Ebi as supposedly reported in some news channels.
