I did not force N650k birthday Aso Ebi on my Staff – Lagos Council Chairman

Mrs. Samiat Bada, Executive Chairman of the Ikosi Isheri Local Council Development Area in Lagos, has firmly denied charges that she forced her employees to buy expensive fabrics for her approaching 50th birthday celebration.

According to the Nigerian Tribune, she denied these charges as baseless and without merit during a news conference conducted at the council office on Tuesday.

The accusations originally emerged in a petition filed by Concerned Ikosi Isheri LCDA Residents against her, stating that she had sold the fabrics for ₦650,000 during a difficult time. The group also accused her of pressuring council members and workers to buy the fabrics, among other misconduct allegations.

In her address to the media, she characterized these allegations as an intentional attempt to blackmail her, tarnish her reputation, and create divisions within her administration that were unnecessary. She emphasized her commitment to transparency and fair treatment of her staff.

“I want to make it clear that the claims being circulated on social media, which allege that I imposed a ₦650,000 Aso Ebi (traditional fabrics) on my staff, are entirely fabricated,” Bada stated during the press conference. “Since taking office, I have prioritized the welfare and working conditions of my staff.”98ddfb0b7146f00abcb343e15c39999e
