osun-state-governor-mr-rauf-aregbesola_-_copy_0-300x225Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun is seeking an amendment to the law establishing the state’s Debt Management Office (DMO).

A letter to this effect, which was sent to the state House of Assembly by the governor, was read at Wednesday’s plenary by the Speaker, Mr Najeem Salaam.

The letter dated Jan. 6, according to the speaker, contained a request from the governor asking for a reduction in the years of experience of a substantive Director General for the DMO.

The governor requested a reduction in years of professional experience of the Director General from 20 years to 15 years, inaddition to other conditions.

Salaam said the letter made it clear that it had become almost impracticable for the law passed in 2012 to be effective due to the stringent requirements attached to the position.

Also at the plenary, the Osun Water Sector Bill 2015 passed through the first reading.

The Assembly also opposed the postponement of the general elections, saying the action was unnecessary.
