Adeleke, Assembly members shun political differences, team up to transform Osun
Gov explains delay in payment of workers’ Nov salary
Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke and the state House of Assembly, yesterday, agreed to put their differences in political parties aside for the transformation and development of the state.
Adeleke, who paid a courtesy visit to the Assembly to seek the lawmakers’ support in moving the state forward, promised to sustain the harmonious relationship between the Executive and the Legislature to move the state forward.
He, therefore, expressed readiness to ensure that logistics and apparatus needed for the smooth running of the Assembly were promptly addressed.
He also urged all and sundry to support his administration, noting that now that election has come and gone, what the state needs is good governance, which his administration is ready to provide.
Meanwhile, the meeting bore good fruits as the 26 members of the House rose above party politics and assured the state governor of support and cooperation.
The Speaker, Timothy Owoeye, said that the Assembly would do everything to support government, saying that they may only disagree with the Executive based on facts of the law and not sentiments.
He added that the legislative arm and executive arm must strengthen their communication channels so as to communicate effectively, devoid of fake news and rumour-mongering.
In another development, Adeleke, yesterday, expressed displeasure over delay in payment of workers’ November salary.
The governor, in a statement by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, threatened to sanction any ministry, department or agency that fails to submit their salary schedule at the end of the working hours of yesterday.
He said that the failure of some agencies to tender their schedules despite earlier directive was responsible for the delay in the payment of the salary.
