Oyo APC chieftain, Akande calls  for women in government

Published

on

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state, Prof. Adeolu Akande has called for a review of the nation’s constitution to guarantee involvement of more women  in government.

Professor Akande, who is also the Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), in a statement issued on the International Women’s Day emphasized that it was high time Nigeria took  advantage of the potentials of the female population to enhance quality of governance and fastrack national development.

“The female gender constitutes about 51 percent of the Nigerian population but holds less than 5 percent of executive and legislative offices. The country will do better when it harnesses the great potentials that abound among the Nigerian women folk”

Akande noted that women had risen beyond this limitation to contribute to all sectors of the Nigerian economy which he said is an indication that if they have guaranteed roles in  government, women will do more.

“The history of Nigeria is not complete without copious reference to the contributions of women like Mrs Funmilayo Ransome Kuti,Hajia Sawaba Sambo, Mrs Magret Eyo among others. Today, Nigeria parades eminent women playing leading roles in all sectors of national life. If they could attain these heights in spite of structural hurdles on their path, we can only imagine how well they will contribute to national development if guaranteed more roles in government.

“We should work towards having  30 percent of executive and legislative offices guaranteed for women. This will ensure that they bring their compassion and other attributes to bear on governance. We shall all be the better for it”, the statement stressed.

It continued, “Also, I want to use this opportunity to counsel against all forms of oppression against women. We should desist from sexualising and objectifying women. It demoralizes them. We should continue the campaign against female genital mutilation. All forms of harassment against women at the work place should be stopped”.

Oyo Speaker decries false allegations, assures constituents of more quality representation

Published

on

The Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin on Sunday said he will not deviate from his mission statement of giving and providing good and quality representation to the people of Ibarapa East Local Government, Ibarapaland in totality and Oyo State in general not minding some unfounded and spurious criticism coming from some faceless political groups.

The Speaker’s statement is coming on the heels of some comments accusing him of non-performance, planned imposition of candidate for local government election, and alleged undue influence and dominance on him by his mother, Yeye Tina Ogundoyin.

Ogundoyin described the comments and allegations as totally untrue, just as he urged the faceless group sponsoring such malicious news to at least consider and judge him by his political activities , accomplisments and vision for the good people of Oyo State and his entire constituents.

The Speaker added that rather than coming up with and suggesting ways of moving Ibarapaland and indeed Oyo State forward, the masterminds of the misleading allegations were hell bent on scoring cheap political points through peddling of false information aimed at casting aspersions on his person, discrediting and blackmailing his political status and dragging the name of his mother in the mud.

“For the umpteenth time, I don’t have any preferred aspirant out of all the five qualified persons jostling to emerge as the PDP candidate for the forthcoming Local Government election in Ibarapa East. I also wish to appeal to the group and its sponsors to leave my mother out of their dirty politicking as Yeye ,who is the Mother to all in Ibarapaland will not impose nor influence the choice of candidate for the LG election. This is democracy and the wish of the people must prevail. My mum is not involved in anything in the Local Government. She has always been reminding me of my election campaign promises to my people and the need to fulfill them. Mum is an advocate of good governance and will not compromise on this,” he said.

According to the Speaker, because of his love and vision for education, he paid WAEC and NECO fees for hundreds of students in his constituency while another fifty benefitted from free JAMB forms , not to mention a modern and functional hospital he built in Lagaye and a place of worship requested for by the people of Oloro village.

“I have two School projects about to be completed, a block of 8 Classrooms at Temidire and another block of 6 Classrooms at Ojonamo in Lanlate . The two will be commissioned during my second year in office in May this year. As I speak, there is an ongoing construction of ten boreholes across all the wards in my Constituency while I am equally set to distribute hundreds of Motorcycles, Refrigerators, Generating Sets and others amongst my constituents. This is part of the empowerment program meant to mark my two years in office. This is not to mention my effort on the present status of Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa and the facilitation of the accreditation of new courses for the Institution. ”

“Some of my Constituents have also enjoyed some employment opportunities and recommendations for appointment and other assistance through my good office. It is also noteworthy for me to mention my singular effort in the choice of Eruwa Farm Settlement by Governor Seyi Makinde for the 7.6billion naira Agricultural loan meant to develop two farm settlements into farm estates in Oyo State”

While commenting on the activities of the 9th Oyo State House of Assembly under his watch, the Speaker said that it was unprecedented that less than two years , the House had passed about sixty laws, had one hundred and forty-two resolutions and eighty-two Motions as against seventy-four laws passed by the 8th Assembly in four years.

He added that this is aside from the oversight functions of the 9th Oyo State House of Assembly which had helped in engendering good governance, complimenting the efforts of all arms of Government and enhancing the delivery of dividends of democracy to the people of Oyo State.

“I am happy that the House of Assembly I preside over has achieved quite a lot in less than two years in office. Of note is the passage of the Open Rearing and Grazing (Prohibition) law, Oyo State security Network (Amotekun) Law, Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Law.

Oyo State Agribusiness Development Agency Law, Oyo State Investment & Public Private Partnership Agency Law, Oyo State Anti-Corruption Agency Law, Lautech Amendment Law, Local Government (Pension) Fund Law, Tourism & Hospitality law and Child Sexual Offences Law just to mention but few. We are ready to do more as my vision is to set more records for the Oyo State House of Assembly as well as make lasting impacts in my Constituency and Ibarapaland as a whole. ” Hon Ogundoyin stated
