Osun Assembly Not ‘Rubber Stamp’ – Lawmakers

The Osun House of Assembly is not a  ‘rubber stamp’  of the state government, Mr Ajibola Akinloye, the Chairman, House Committee on Information and Strategy, has said.

Akinloye said this in Osogbo on Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of  Nigeria.

He explained that the cordial relationship between the executive and lawmakers  had made some people to believe in such speculation.

NAN reports that the 26 lawmakers in the assembly belong to the All Progressives Party.

He said, “Whenever we notice  lapses, we call the governor to make amends and he responds immediately.

”Those who say we are rubber stamp are far from the truth and their opinion is myopic in nature.

”Without the existing good relationship between the executive and the members of the assembly, the development and transformation we are experiencing in the state will not have been possible.”

Akinloye added that there was  no bill presented to the Assembly and passed into law that was not in the best interest of the people.

He said the Assembly would continue to work with the executive in the best interest of the state.

The Chairman, House Committee on Finance and Appropriation, Mr Kamil Oyedele, said the Assembly was not a rubber stamp.
