 Rt. Hon. Suraju Ishola Adekunbi

The Speaker of the
Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Suraju Ishola Adekunbi, says a viable
and vibrant legislature could only be achieved when there is a harmonious
synergy between Lawmakers and the House of Assembly Service Commission which
will in turn lead to improved productivity and quality service delivery.

Adekunbi said this while playing host to the members
of the Assembly Service Commission who paid courtesy call on the leadership of
the House at the Assembly Complex, Oke- Mosan, Abeokuta.
He assured the Commission of adequate support and
cooperation in achieving the overall goal of the State legislature, stressing
the need for the Commission to redouble its effort especially in the area of
capacity building and welfare of staff.
The Speaker noted that the eighth legislature was
committed to improving the quality of lives of the people through a better,
viable but people -oriented legislation.
Responding, the Chairman of the Commission, Barr.
Adebayo Adesegun assured that members of the Board would give the necessary
support to the honourable members to achieve more in terms of staff
development, welfare and promotion amongst other.
According to him, some outstanding issues relating to
promotion and discipline had just been addressed.
Meanwhile, Speaker Adekunbi has promised that
Government will do all within its power to promote a crisis-free society
through effective security network in all parts of the State.
Adekunbi stated this while responding to the
presentation of a member representing Yewa North II State Constituency, Hon.
Rasaq Oduntan on the alleged invasion of farmlands in some communities within
his constituency by Hausa/Fulani herdsmen leading to the destruction of
farmlands and death of innocent people.
The Speaker, who urged the people to continue to
promote peaceful co-existence, promised that the State Government in
collaboration with the State Command of the Nigeria Police would take proactive
steps in addressing the menace of the herdsmen.
He noted that all hands must be on deck to rid the
State of crimes and criminality so as to consolidate on the success of the
ongoing rebuilding mission of the State Government.
Earlier in his presentation, Hon. Oduntan said that
his constituents had been experiencing incessant invasions and destruction of
their farmlands by herdsmen and in the process killing the farm owners.
