The Oyo state house of assembly may be gearing up to embark on inspection tour of all ongoing capital projects spread across the state by the state government.

Honourable Ashimiyu Alarape, the minority leader of the 9th assembly, gave the hint while speaking with journalists in his office at the Oyo state assembly parliamentary complex in Ibadan last Thursday 12th Nov 2020.

The lawmaker hinted that members of the Oyo state house assembly have resolved to divide the house into three groups in order to achieve desired results in the oversight function.

Sunrisebulletin.com recalls that the Speaker, Hon Adebo Ogundoyin also gave the hint while giving a brief remark during its last plenary session before reinstating the 13 suspended caretaker chairmen in the state last Thursday.

This news medium also recalls that the house had on Tuesday 3rd November, 2020 during its plenary sitting condemned some projects being executed by the state Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) following a motion brought before it by Honourable Taofeek Kehinde, representing Akinyele II.

Speaking on the Motion titled “NEED TO RECTIFY PERCEIVED LAPSES ON NEWLY CONSTRUCTED BLOCK OF FOUR CLASSROOMS IN METHODIST PRIMARY SCHOOL, OLORISAOKO, OFF MONIYA/ISEYIN ROAD, IBADAN AND OTHER POORLY EXECUTED UBEC/SUBEB PROJECTS IN THE STATE”, the house expressed great displeasure and vowed to get to the root of the matter.

According to Hon Alarape, the house has decided to suspend plenary throughout next week to afford it embark on the oversight function to all sites of ongoing projects in the state.

Each group is expected to cover each senatorial district but as at the time of filing this report, details of the tour modalities are yet to be known as the house is yet to make formal announcement.

Ogundoyin, who had repeatedly emphasised that the inspection tour is part of the statutory duty of lawmakers noted in his remark during the last plenary sitting that the move to tour all the local government areas in the state to inspect ongoing projects is not targeted at witch-hunting anybody but to make sure that the people of the state enjoy good governance and dividends of democracy.
