BREAKING: Osun Assembly Orders Status Quo On LG Administration



—Congratulates Governor Adeleke

The Osun State House of Assembly has congratulated the newly sworn in Governor of the State, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The Assembly late Tuesday at a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Timothy Owoeye, responded to recent events in the state, saying the legislative arm saddled with the responsibility of law making, only disagreed with the Governor on matters of law.

Owoeye while briefing members of the Assembly on the outcome of the private meeting he held with Governor Adeleke earlier in the day stated that there now exist a mutual understanding that the house will be carried along on matters that concerns the legislature.

The Speaker in a statement by his Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Alabi held that the position of the House of Assembly was purely from the point of law and not in anyway antagonizing the Executive arm of government, saying the positions from the point of law was also related to the Governor at the meeting.

On the issue of LG administration, Rt. Hon. Owoeye informed the plenary of a notice of appeal against the decision of a Federal High Court judgment served on the 7th Assembly.

The House thereby resolves that the issue of Local Government administration should be left to the court of law, ordering a status quo on all Local Government administration pending the exhaustion on all legal means.

Owoeye while thanking his colleagues for their service and steadfastness to the State said “This is the Osun State House of Assembly, anything we are doing has to be to the development and progress of this state, we have not done anything wrong or foul of the law.

“As an institution, we x-ray and scan whatever we disseminate because as far as the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is concerned, we are performing legislative duties and our functions as legislators.”

“When Aregbesola took over the mantle of leadership in 2010, the PDP controlled local government was still in place and the status quo remained. Nobody dissolved the local government until all legal processes were completed.” The Speaker emphasized.
