The Osun State House of Assembly on Thursday constituted seven ad hoc committees to midwife the smooth inauguration of the 8th Assembly in the state on June 6.
Mr Simeon Amusan, the Clerk of the Assembly, while constituting the committees at the assembly floor, said the committees were constituted to avoid unnecessary vacuum and constitutional crisis.
“In facilitating a smooth and seamless inauguration, the management has approved the setting up of a number of ad hoc committees to take charge of different aspects of the programme to ensure its overall success,” he said.
Amusan said that the committees were; Publicity, headed by Laide Lawal; Protocol/Invitation Committee, headed by Raheem Sanusi; and Security/Crowd Control Committee, headed by Muyiwa Ayeni.
Others are; Entertainment/Decoration Committee, headed by Mrs Olanike Oyajide; Technical Committee, headed by Tajudeen Alade; Sanitation Committee with Taye Elutilo as chairman; and Medical Committee, headed by Mrs Mulikat Akinola.
He urged all the committees to work in synergy so that the inauguration of the 8th Assembly would be a success.
Speaking to newsmen after the inauguration, Mr Laide Lawal, the Chairman of the Publicity Committee and Director of Information of the assembly, solicited media support for coverage of the inauguration.
Lawal tasked journalists to work with him to give the inauguration a proper and befitting coverage, saying they were also part of the publicity committee for the inauguration.
The Osun State 7th Assembly, led by Speaker Timothy Owoeye, would be winding down on June 5 while the 8th Assembly would be inaugurated on June 6.
