The lawmaker representing the Obokun State Constituency in Osun State House of Assembly, Adewumi Adeyemi on Tuesday noted that legislators in the assembly have not reviewed the inaugural address of the state Governor, Ademola Adeleke.
Adeyemi stated this while reacting to a statement signed by the spokesman of the Assembly, Moshood Akande, claiming that lawmakers have taken a position on the inaugural address of Adeleke.
Akande in the statement had claimed that after reviewing the inaugural address, lawmakers have insisted that the State will continue to be described as the State of the Virtuous (Ipinle Omoluabi) and not State of the Living Spring as proposed by Governor Adeleke.
Recall that Governor Adeleke on Sunday during his inaugural address said the state would not be called the ‘State of Osun’ again but ‘Osun State, adding that the state would be referred to as ‘State of the Living Spring’.
Adeyemi in his reaction to Akande’s statement said he had been attending plenary regularly, adding Adeleke’s address had never been raised by the lawmakers.
He, however, called on legislators in the state to continue working together and support the new government.
Adeyemi said, “My attention has been drawn to a statement which reportedly emanated from the Osun State House of Assembly and was signed by Hon. Moshood Kunle Akande.
“In the said statement, it was stated that the Assembly reviewed the inaugural speech and activities of the inauguration held on Sunday, November 27.
“As a lawmaker who attends plenary very well, I hereby state unequivocally that the Assembly has not met after the governor’s inauguration.
“It is also worth noting that there was no place the resolution was passed by the Assembly. The public, especially Osun people, are hereby advised to take note of this.”
