By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has submitted a full list of commissioners and special advisers to the state House of Assembly

The list will be read out at the plenary of the Assembly when it resumes from its recess early next week, according to a statement by the spokesperson to the governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed on Tuesday. 

The House of Assembly had gone on recess after inauguration to allow the new lawmakers get prepared for legislative business and for the logistics of operations to be firmed up.

The statement said: “His Excellency has finalized the commissioners’ list and submitted same to the state Assembly. The House is resuming next week and expectedly, the House Speaker will disclose the names to his colleagues to commence screening of nominees.

“The Governor and the state leadership have done the needful and the public should expect the list to be made public sooner than later.

“The delay was clearly due to many factors, namely the protracted litigation  on the outcome of the governorship election and the general elections covering state Assembly,  National Assembly and the presidential elections.

“The good thing is that the long wait is over. The long awaited commissioners’ list here.”
