OGSHA Wants Relevant Authorities to Rid Streets of Lunatics, Destitutes
Ogun State House of Assembly has urged the state Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development to work with other relevant bodies to halt the increasing number of destitutes and mental health patients roaming the streets of Abeokuta, the State capital.
During a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Mr. Olakunle Oluomo at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the lawmakers also called for collaborations with security agencies and other stakeholders to rid the society of cult clashes and kidnapping.
In separate contributions, the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Dare Kadiri, Mrs. Atinuke Bello, and Mr Oludaisi Elemide called for urgent actions to address some of the issues.
Responding, Mr. Oluomo maintained that the issue of security was a tripartite duty of the community, government and security agencies, with a renewed call on the various security formations to strengthen their operations in all parts of the state especially as the yuletide season approaches.
Meanwhile, two bills including Ogun State Safety Commission Law, 2020 and State Energy Board Law, 2020 have scaled through second reading.
The Safety Commission Bill would help to prevent hazards in homes and industries across the State, while the Energy law was aimed at providing alternative power generation system towards achieving seamless access to electricity, especially in rural areas.
