You Are Fighting A Good Course : Oyo Speaker Tells PASAN
As the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN begins an indefinite strike across the Country, the Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Mr Adebo Ogundoyin says the call by the Association for the implementation of financial autonomy for the Legislative arm of Government is a laudable course and the constitutional right of the workers.
The Speaker stated this while addressing Oyo Assembly workers who gathered at the main Gate of the Parliament Building Secretariat, Ibadan for the commencement of an indefinite strike in compliance with the directive of the National body of the Association.
The workers who shut down all the Gates leading to Oyo Assembly complex displayed different placards showing their displeasure on the non-implementation of financial autonomy for the Legislative arm of Government across the Country.
Mr Ogundoyin said the strike will no doubt paralyse the activities of the Oyo State House of Assembly, adding that it was however in the interest of democracy and the independence of the Legislative arms of Government.
He assured them that the Governors Forum will soon come up with a uniform way or modality of implementing the financial autonomy.
” No state will go about it in different way. Everything will done in a uniform manner. Let me also say that, the Speakers’ Forum too will not relent until the financial autonomy is achieved. ” The Speaker said.
