Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has forwarded two bills to the House of Assembly which included, “A bill for a law to make provisions for the Administration of Criminal Justice in the High Courts and Magistrates’ Courts of the State and for other related matters”.
The second bill reads, “A bill for a Law to provide for the resolution of disputes by arbitration and other Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanisms as well as the establishment of Ogun Court of Arbitration and for connected purposes”.
The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Suraju Ishola Adekunbi, who read the Governor’s letters, dated 13th March, 2017 conveying the bill to the Assembly submitted that the Governor’s decision was approved in the Seventh meeting of the State Executive Council held on the 13th February, 2017.
Meanwhile, Speaker Adekunbi has called on the State Ministry of Works to liaise with its Federal counterpart to ensure the commencement of works on the Ogijo- Sagamu road contract said to have been approved last year.
The call followed the submission of the Majority Leader Hon. Adeyinka Mafe, who raised the issue of the Federal road linking Ogijo to Sagamu which he noted had been awarded by the Federal Government but yet to commence construction works.
