The Speaker maintained that “there now exists a mutual understanding that the house will be carried along on matters that concerns the legislature.”

On the issue of LG administration, Hon. Owoeye informed the plenary of a notice of appeal against the decision of a Federal High Court judgment, served on the 7th Assembly.

The House resolved that the issue of Local Government administration should be left to the court of law, ordering a status quo on all Local Government administration pending the exhaustion of all legal means.

Owoeye, while thanking his colleagues for their service and steadfastness to the State said “This is the Osun State House of Assembly, anything we are doing has to be to the development and progress of this state, we have not done anything wrong or foul of the law.

“As an institution, we x-ray and scan whatever we disseminate because as far as the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is concerned, we are performing legislative duties and our functions as legislators.”

“When Aregbesola took over the mantle of leadership in 2010, the PDP controlled local government was still in place and the status quo remained. Nobody dissolved the local government until all legal processes were completed,” the Speaker emphasized.
