The Association of Persons with Spinal Cord Injury in Osun state has suspended its Chairman, Mr. Adeleye Olayemi Lucky, over alleged misappropriation of the association’s funds.
During their meeting on Wednesday, members accused Adeleye of perpetrating forgery by withdrawing money from the association’s account using the signature of a late member.
They also said that he was deceitful and threatening the lives of members of the association.
Adeleye admitted that he used signature of a late member of the association to withdraw money from bank after his demise.
He explained that he did so because the process of changing the signatory to the account could not be completed due to inability to get death certificate of the late member.
He however denied the allegations intimidation and threat to life leveled against him by his members.
One of the members of the association, Adebisi Yusuff Adekola, moved the motion for the suspension of the Chairman and the motion was seconded by another member, Olanrewaju Olakusibe.
The entire members of the association thereafter passed a vote of no confidence on Adeleye and ratified his suspension.
At the meeting, the Vice Chairman of the association was appointed as Chairman on acting capacity while another member, Adebisi Yusuff Adekola, was selected as the acting Vice Chairman until further notice.
