Osun lawmakers pass vote of confidence in Speaker

Osun State House of Assembly members have passed vote of confidence in the Speaker, Timothy Owoeye.

They said they were impressed with his leadership style.

The vote of confidence followed allegation of bias levelled against the Speaker by the Minority Leader, Adewunmi Babatunde.

He (Babatunde) accused Owoeye of maltreating and marginalising lawmakers who are members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

A document signed by 22 lawmakers out of 26, made available yesterday by Deputy Majority Leader Kunle Akande, passed a vote of confidence in the Speaker, saying he had piloted the affairs of the 7th Assembly in a collective and participatory manner, giving every legislator a sense of belonging.
