The selection of the new members of Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) presented to State Assembly by Governor Seyi Makinde has been criticized.
Naija News learnt that the Oyo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress has criticized the Governor of the State over the composition people in the OYSIEC member describing the action of the governor as pure “impunity”.
Oke, who expressed disappointment over the development said, “We knew that this governor will not have regards or respect for the Rule of Law.
“Our party has taken the governor to court over the sack or dissolution of a body that was legally constituted, it may, however, interest you to know that the members are also in court to challenge their dissolution.
“My advice for him is that he should endeavour to follow the rule of law in ruling the state.”
Reacting, the spokesperson of PDP in Oyo State, Mr Akeem Olatunji, described the outcry of APC, as “baseless and unfounded”.
He opined that the governor was constitutionally right to have forwarded names of new OYSIEC members to the state assembly for approval.
He said that the former members of the electoral body was dissolved by the state assembly and not the governor.
