The Osun State House of Assembly has congratulated the newly sworn-in Governor of the State, Senator Ademola Adeleke

This as the House also resolved that the issue of Local Government administration should be left to the court of law.

It also ordered a status quo on all Local Government administration pending the exhaustion of all legal means

The Assembly on Tuesday at a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Timothy Owoeye while responding to recent events in the state added that the legislative arm is saddled with the responsibility of law-making, and only disagreed with the Governor on matters of law.

Owoeye while briefing members of the Assembly on the outcome of the private meeting he held with Governor Adeleke earlier in the day stated that there now exists a mutual understanding that the house will be carried along on matters that concern the legislature.

The Speaker in a statement by his Press Secretary, Kunle Alabi held that the position of the House of Assembly was purely from the point of law and not in any way antagonizing the Executive arm of government.

He added that the positions from the point of the law were also related to the Governor at the meeting.

On the issue of LG administration, Owoeye informed the plenary of a notice of appeal against the decision of a Federal High Court judgment served on the 7th Assembly.

He thanked his colleagues for their service and steadfastness to the state.

"This is the Osun State House of Assembly, anything we are doing has to be to the development and progress of this state, we have not done anything wrong or foul of the law. 

"As an institution, we x-ray and scan whatever we disseminate because as far as the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is concerned, we are performing legislative duties and our functions as legislators.

"When Aregbesola took over the mantle of leadership in 2010, the PDP-controlled local government was still in place and the status quo remained.

"Nobody dissolved the local government until all legal processes were complete", the Speaker emphasized.
