Oyo Assembly Debunks Rumour about Constituency Allowance Approval
The Oyo State House of Assembly has debunked the report of constituency allowance approval published by an Ibadan based blogger, describing it as false and street rumour.
A statement jointly signed by the Chairman House Committee on Media and Publicity, Mr Kazeem Olayanju and Financial Appropriation Committee, Mr. Adebayo Babajide, laments the embarrassing intention of the online news medium to misinform and mislead the public.
The online report had qouted an anonymous source at the governor’s office that Governor Seyi Makinde had given a matching order by giving approval for the release of the constituency allowance.
The statement states that the economic reality in the state and nation required a lot of sacrifice and cooperation in governance for the benefit and development of Oyo State and its people.
It explains that the 9th Assembly in the state found the report embarrassing to the integrity of the Assembly and the entire state.
It however gives the online news medium 24hour ultimatum to apologise or face litigation from the legislative arm
