There are indications of fresh crisis between principal officers and members of the Oyo State House of Assembly over who to benefit from the delivery of nine (9) newly supplied official cars among the members.
DAILY POST reliably gathered that principal officers on Tuesday insisted on being the beneficiaries of the first set of official cars bought for the assembly members almost two years after the inauguration of the eight assembly, a situation that did not gone well with floor members.
At the parliamentary caucus meeting held on Tuesday that lasted till 3pm, it was gathered that the bone of contention was who should be the beneficiaries of the vehicles. A source at the meeting informed DAILY POST that while the principal officers insisted that they would be the first set to benefit from it, other members suggested that the beneficiaries should be among the ordinary members.
The assembly is made up of 32 members, including the Speaker, Hon. Michael Adeyemo and the Deputy, Hon. Musah Abduwash who were excluded having gotten their own official vehicles. It was also learnt that another nagging issue causing divisionamong the members is the presentation of the report of the Committee that investigated the allegation of the swearing inof two un-cleared local government caretaker chairmen for Irepo Local Government, Asabari Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Mr Mudasir Agbaje, and Taiwo Adeleke respectively and swapping of Mr Akeem Aransi with Mr Abiodun Oladeji for Lagelu West LCDA.
However it was gathered that Governor Abiola Ajimobi had held a closed door meeting with the lawmakers with a view to amicably resolving the perceived imbroglio between the two arms.
