Our Oversight Functions Shall Ensure Good Governance; Says Osun Speaker Owoeye



Timothy Owoeye, the newly elected Speaker of the 7th Osun State House of Assembly has stated that the House under his leadership would ensure oversight functions in order to be sure that people-oriented projects are carried out.

He stated that the House remains one.
“It’s one big family. Everybody is back to the work, ready to work together in team spirit to move the state forward.
Everybody is ready to give his best in the new dispensation with the hope that the state would witness a new dimension of legislative functions and activities capable of delivering good governance to the people.” He said

He assured the people that the 7th Assembly would be a pride to everyone, especially, every lover of democratic governance anchored on a sound legislature.

He also said that his 12 year experience as a legislator in any democratic institution, is additional bonus to any leadership position.

He said “we make laws, we are also the watch dogs over the executive. Periodical or quarterly review of activities at the ministries, MDAs, agencies and parastatals would have to be reviewed. We will ensure that projects initiated by the executive, either infrastructure, social and economic programmes are executed. We will not fold our hands and see anything go wrong with government projects. There shall be nothing like abandoned projects. People-oriented governance and projects targeted at poverty alleviation will be our priorities. Of course these are the essences of governance”.
