Assembly crisis: Lawmakers’ SUV cars arrive
The official vehicles for lawmakers in the Ondo State House of Assembly have arrived the state.
The Speaker of the House, Bamidele Oleyelogun confirmed to The Hope yesterday that no fewer than nine brand new official cars have arrived the state capital and that the remaining ones will get to the state any moment from now.
According to him, the total number of the cars is 26 for all the 26 members of the Assembly. He also named the make of the vehicles as Kia Optima.
Oleyelogun explained that being brand new vehicles, extra care is needed to ensure their safe delivery to the state government by the company handling them.
He added that the remaining 17 Sport Utility Vehicles would arrive the state this week.
Investigation by The Hope revealed that with this and the forthcoming constituency projects for the lawmakers there is a ray of hope that a lasting peace will finally return to the hallowed chambers in no distance time.
It was gathered that the issues of official vehicles and constituency projects among others are the major reasons behind the recent fracas in the parliament.
It is now believed that as soon as the burning issues are amicably resolved, normalcy will finally return to the hallowed chambers.
The current 8th Assembly members have less than six months to the expiration of their tenure in office.
Majority of the lawmakers will not return to the hallowed chambers after the forthcoming general elections in the country. This is because they were not given return tickets by their various political parties during the recently conducted primaries.
The lawmakers had insisted on the constituency projects, saying that the constituency projects will be their physical achievements in their various constituencies as representatives of their respective constituents.
