Several members of the All Progressives Congress in Iwo, Ola-Oluwa and Obokun local government areas of Osun State, on Monday, staged a protest against the Nominees of Governor Gboyega Oyetola for the Local Government areas.
The protesters harmed with placards with various inscriptions like “Enough is Enough, O to gee”, “APC is nobody’s property”, “2022 is Shaking” “Iwo are not Slaves”, “Obokun people want Justice”, stormed the State House of Assembly to register their grievances over the nomination.
The spokesperson from Iwo, Mr. Nurani Musbau in an interview, said they want the Assembly to step down the whole lists of nominees presented to them.
Mr. Musbau said the harmonised list prepared by the party leaders in their local government had been compromised and asked the House of Assembly to revisit the harmonised list submitted by the party leaders.
Addressing the Protesters, the Speaker, Mr. Timothy Owoeye appealed to the protesters to be calm and patient while the House look into the matter.
Mr. Owoeye assured the protesters that Assembly would intervene and look into their petition.
It would be recalled that the Assembly had on Friday read out names of nominees to run the affairs of Local governments, LCDAs and Area Councils in the state.
