The Ogun State House of Assembly has approved the extension of tenure of Local Government Transition Committee Chairmen for a period of three months.
The approval, with effect from April 18, 2020, followed the request by Governor Dapo Abiodun to the lawmakers.
At a plenary held Wednesday at the Assembly complex in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the lawmakers approved the tenure extension for the transition committees.
The Majority Leader and member representing Ado-Odo/Ota I State Constituency, Yusuf Sherif, moved the motion for tenure extension and it was seconded by his Ado-Odo/Ota II counterpart, Lamidi Musefiu, after which it was supported by other lawmakers through a voice vote.
The Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, had during the previous plenary acknowledged the governor’s correspondence requesting for a three- month extension considering the fact that local government election had not been conducted due to prevailing circumstances.
Similarly, the Assembly unanimously passed a resolution requesting all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government as well as parastatals to submit their records of activities, including revenue heads, projects implemented and contracts awarded, among others, to the Assembly on or before Wednesday, June 3, to enable lawmakers to conduct their annual oversight function on MDAs in the state.
