2019: Ogun Lawmakers Deny Rift With Amosun
The Ogun State House of Assembly has dispelled rumours of an alleged misunderstanding between members of the House and Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
Olakunle Oluomo, the Deputy Speaker of the House said the purported rift between the governor and the House should be disregarded.
“The report is untrue and it is total lies. We are in a political 'perilous' times, so you should expect a lot of things,” he said while reacting to a social media report which alleged that the governor and the lawmakers were now at loggerheads after a botched meeting of the APC's lawmakers called by Mr Amosun on Monday.
The social media was awash with reports that the meeting which was also attended by National Assembly members was “unsuccessful” as the attendees and the governor disagreed over second term tickets in 2019.
Oluomo who spoke on Thursday in Abeokuta stated that the face-off was a rumour and a lie.
He said the relationship between the governor and the lawmakers elected on the platform of APC was “cordial”.
“The governor also enjoys cordial relationship with lawmakers representing the state at the National Assembly.
“The governor has a policy at the beginning of every year to call all members of the National Assembly and the State House of Assembly for an interaction on his programmes.
“The legislators had a 'fruitful’ meeting with the governor.
“So, the same thing happened on Monday and in fact, only the principal officers of the State House of Assembly were at the meeting because the House was on recess,’’ the deputy speaker said.
