By Oluwanifemi Idowu, Abeokuta

The Ogun State House of Assembly has passed no fewer than seven bills into laws, while over 24 resolutions were also passed in the last one year.

The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Oludaisi Elemide, who disclosed this at a special plenary to commemorate its first year of inauguration, said indigenes and residents of the state should expect more people-oriented legislations and facilitation of projects that will have direct and positive impact on their lives in the coming months.

The Speaker noted that each of the bills passed during the legislative year touches on the day-to-day running of government in the State, including the yearly appropriation bill, the judiciary fund management and Legislative funds management, as well as amendment to the Magistrates' Court and the amendment of the Local Government law, 2024.

Elemide said, "sanctity of the legislative arm in the State is being restored to deliver on its core duties and responsibilities of promoting quality representation through the passage of people-oriented legislations and resolutions meant to advance good governance, thereby enhancing democratic ideals.

"No fewer than seven bills have been passed into laws, while seven others are at the various stages of legislative process with over 24 motions passed into resolutions. 

"Each of the bills passed touches on the day-to-day running of government in the State, including the yearly appropriation bill, the judiciary fund management and Legislative funds management, as well as amendment to the Magistrates' Court and the amendment of the Local Government law, 2024.

"It is on record that the various issues that required urgent public importance and those that need the immediate attention of government to enhance socio-economic and political development of the State were equally given immediate attention through House Resolutions, and as such have been passed to the relevant government Ministries, Departments and Agencies for necessary actions.

Commending Governor Abiodun for his efforts in turning around the fortunes of the State for better, the Speaker implored his colleague-lawmakers to continue to work collectively for the overall success of the current administration in the State.

In their various remarks, all the State lawmakers unanimously commended the Governor Abiodun for non-interference in their legislative oversights, especially those involved in appraisal of budget performance, public accounts and anti-corruption and compliance with appropriation law amongst others.

They also acknowledged the Governor’s efforts at creating an enabling environment for the State lawmakers in performing their legislative duties, which  culminated in the ongoing renovation of the State House of Assembly Complex.
