The Oyo State House of Assembly, on Thursday at its plenary, sacked the caretaker chairmen of the 33 local government areas in the state.
Speaker of the House, Monsurat Sunmonu, representing Oyo East/West, made the pronouncement during the session.
According to her, “the caretaker chairmen of all LGAs in the state should step down immediately and the Head of Local Government Administration (HLA) should take over.”
It would be recalled that late last year, the House extended the tenure of the chairmen by six months.
In making the pronouncement, the speaker said the Auditor General of Local Government in the state should appear before parliamentary caucus next week Monday with audited reports of the councils.
Meanwhile, Azeez Adesope, representing Orelope Constituency, at the plenary, called on Governor Abiola Ajimobi to end the strike embarked upon by judiciary workers to avoid further delay in the administration of justice.
“I, hereby, appeal to the state governor to use his good office to re-open negotiation with JUSUN so that the workers can return to work,” he said.
He reasoned that since other states have resolved the industrial disputes with their judicial workers, Oyo State should follow suit.
“Especially in this period of campaign when crime is on the increase, we don’t want our cells to be congested,” he said.
