OSHA Orders Parliamentarians Out of LCDA Pending Investigation
The Osun State House of Assembly, OSHA, has directed the parliamentarians of Osogbo South Local Council Development Areas to vacate their offices pending the outcome of the investigation of the Assembly.
The speaker, Mr. Timothy Owoeye at plenary held that sequel to the presentations of the Majority and Minority Leaders on the need to reconvene for the House to deliberate on matter of public interest, on the purported impeachment of Osogbo South LCDA Chairman.
Mr. Owoeye noted that the House after deliberations resolved that for peace to reign while it is carrying out its assignment on the impasse, the Council Manager of the affected LCDA should take over the affairs of the council.
He also urged that relevant security agencies should take note of the order of the assembly that the parliamentarians should not parade themselves within the premises of the Council, ensuring that peace of the public is guaranteed.
The House also resolved that the notification sent to the House by Osogbo South LCDA and that of Olorunda be committed to the House Committee on Local Government and Public petition to present their report within the stipulated time required by the law.
The speaker emphasised that the Local Government Creation and Administration Law of Osun 2015 section 19 (C) gives the assembly 7 days to look into the matter, stating that the House will work within the 7 working days stipulated by the law.
