Legislators start transferring power from the APC to the PDP


Before the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government in Osun State handed over power in November, the transition process was formally launched by the State House of Assembly on Monday with the introduction of the State of Osun Transition Bill 2022.

RT Hon Timothy Owoeye, Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, wrote the State of Osun Transition Bill 2022, which was submitted in plenary and officially begins the transition of power from the All Progressive Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

When the state’s new governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, takes office on November 27, 2022, the bill that went through its second reading aims to ensure a smooth transition from one administration to the next.

Owoeye argued that the innovative measure, if it becomes law, will enable a thorough and workable structure to control the transfer of political power following an election to the office of Governor in compliance with the law.

The following is an excerpt from the bill: “The bill, if it becomes law, will ensure that the person chosen as governor receives a daily briefing on the state of the union during the time leading up to their assumption of office.

It will also make sure that the holders of the relevant political offices receive the salaries, allowances, facilities, privileges, and retiring benefits or awards as determined by the Public Service Rules without undue delay, in addition to performing any other duties that will help the team accomplish the goal of this bill.

For the purposes of this Bill, the Team must initially convene no later than 14 days following the announcement of the winner of the governor’s race.

The team must reach a conclusion by agreement, but if a member cannot agree, the matter must be presented to the advisory council for decision-making regarding the trip.
