Oyo Assembly Proposes Motion to Investigate Records of LGAs and LCDAs Chairmen

The Oyo State House of Assembly, on Thursday, has instructed all Chairmen of the 33 local government areas (LGAs) and 35 local council development areas (LCDAs) to submit a report of their service to the state by next Friday.

For submission of these reports, an Adhoc committee of the Assembly is slated to investigate the activities of the LGs and LCDAs in terms of their records, accounts, projects, and contracts from December 2020 till date.

This action, by the Assembly, is in acknowledgement of the reality that the current tenure and office of transition committee Chairmen in LGAs and LCDAs will cease on March 19, in other to conduct the local government election slated for May 15.

Included in a motion presented by Honourable Ademola Popoola, the Chairman, House Committee on Local Government, and Chieftaincy Matters, the service report will deter the caretaker committees from insidiously sneaking liabilities into the incoming democratically elected government.

After the service report submission, the local government Chairmen are booked to appear before the Popoola led Adhoc committee, which will thereafter present a report of its conclusions at a plenary before March 19.

This conclusion that the service report is submitted to the house was agreed on after an objection by Honourable Wumi Oladeji of Ogbomoso North and Honourable Isiaka Kazeem of Oyo East/Oyo West constituency against executing another oversight shortly after one was executed last November.

Countering the idea of going around constituencies for supervision and inspection, Honourable Oladeji, in particular, insisted that the local government Chairmen should present their handover report.

On the part of Honorable Kazeem, he was of the opinion that the Assembly should pay more attention to the security challenges in the state.

But, Honourable Akintunde Olajide of Lagelu and Honourable Dele Adeola supported that local government Chairmen should be called upon again to present an account of the monthly allocations they have gotten so far.

The Deputy Speaker, Honourable Abiodun Fadeyi also supported the argument of executing an investigation on these local government Chairmen, and also the submission of their report for tenure in office, before March 19.
