OSHA Passes Amendment Bill on Impeachment of LG Chairmen
The Osun State House of Assembly, OSHA, has passed the Osun Local Government Areas Creation and Administration Amendment No 4 Bill 2020.
The bill was passed during plenary at the floor of the House of Assembly Complex, Osogbo after a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Mr. Maruf Olanrewaju and seconded by member representing Atakumosa East and West, Mr. Babtunde Komolafe.
The Speaker of the House, Mr. Timothy Owoeye in his remarks said the bill would put an end to illegal impeachment of Chairman in various Local Government area of the state.
The Speaker noted that no parliamentarian has power to remove any council Chairman without petition to the State House of Assembly.
He urged the executive to urgently assent into the bill for the benefit of the people and entire state.
It would be recalled that the Clause 4 of the Osun Local Government Areas Creation and Administration Amendment Law had empowered the parliamentarians in the council to impeach a Chairman for misconduct which had led to impeachment of some council chairmen before the intervention of the House of Assembly.
