Barring any last minute change, the list of Commissioner-designates in the state of Osun will be read on the floor of the state House of Assembly on Tuesday.
Feelers from the Assembly on Monday hinted that Governor Gboyega Oyetola who is currently in President Buhari’s entourage to the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York had directed the submission of the list to the Speaker of the Assembly, latest by Monday evening.
A top assembly source who spoke to OsunDefender on Monday evening said “All things being equal, the list should be read tomorrow. The atmosphere is good and ready and I am sure the lawmakers and the entire state are anticipating for those who would finally make Governor Oyetola’s cabinet.”
”With the feelers I am getting, the list is ready and should have been submitted by now (Monday evening). I am confident and sure that without further ado, the list will be read tomorrow morning. It should be on the order paper of the Assembly for plenary tomorrow.”
This medium also gathered from close sources especially to the Speaker, Timothy Owoeye who all confirmed that the list should be read without any further ado on Tuesday.
If the list is eventually read today, it will bring to a close months of anticipation and expectations on those to assist Governor Oyetola in the governance of Osun after 10 months of his assumption of office.
The drawing of the final list had taken a long time after months of rigorous inter-party squabbles and protest by some sections of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC in the state.
As gathered, the list has members of the All Progressives Congress APC selected through the choice of the party hierarchy at different local government levels while 4 members of the Social Democratic Party SDP were selected in honour of the coalition between the two parties.
