News: Osun: Dissolution of statutory commissions reckless, won’t go unchallenged legally – APC to Adeleke


The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Osun State has described the dissolution of the boards of statutory commissions as reckless and display of executive rascality.

Osun APC, while faulting the decision by the Ademola Adeleke-led administration, also stated that the dissolution of the commissions will not be allowed to go unchallenged through legal action.

In a statement by its chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, on Wednesday, the party insisted that the dissolution of the tenured statutory commissions was a flagrant act of illegality and crass exhibition of administrative ignorance that won’t see the light of day.

DAILY POST recalls that the state governor, Ademola Adeleke, had announced the dissolution of the State Civil Service Commission, the Judicial Service Commission, the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission and the Osun State House of Assembly Service Commission.

However, Lawa, in a statement, wondered, “Why will a supposed democratic constitutional government not embrace the rule of law in administering the state?

“Those who are thinking for this government have not disappointed the right-thinking members of the public that the Adeleke administration has nothing tangible to do to improve the fortune of the state.

“There is absolutely nothing suggestive of the fact that Governor Ademola Adeleke is in charge of his government. If he were adept at the act of governance, Adeleke would not have had the temerity and audacity to abort the life span of the statutory commissions.

“With this dissolution of the statutory commissions, Adeleke is making the state a laughing stock among the comity of states across the nation.

“Let it be known that this shenanigan and an arrant display of an act of lawlessness by Governor Adeleke and his co-travellers would not be allowed to go unchallenged through legal means.”

Lawal warned that if Adeleke does not rescind the illegal decision to dissolve the statutory commissions, he should be prepared to face the music, as Osun State is not a private enterprise.

Responding, the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Kolapo Alimi, insisted that the governor acted within the requirements of the law in dissolving all statutory commissions almost a year after he assumed office.

Making this clarification through a statement, Alimi revealed the governor received the best legal advice before taking the decision.

The Information Commissioner posited that the dissolved commissions suffered legal deficiencies in their making.

“The appointments were made under a law that has been nullified by a competent court of law, which, by implication, made those beneficiaries lacked the expected claim to immunity from dissolution by a governor who is upholding only legal actions of the previous government.

“The State of Osun, a platform already declared illegal by a court of competent jurisdiction. It must also be added that the former Governor violated the stipulations of the law in the composition of some of the boards.

“The law stipulated the types and manners of persons to be appointed into the commissions. By violating those requirements, the appointments were rendered null and void.

“We can, therefore, assure all and sundry that the state government does not need tutoring from those who hope to benefit from obvious non-compliance perpetrated by the previous government.”

Alimi also advised the members of the dissolved commissions to accept the best wishes and commendation of the state governor for their meritorious service to the state.
