The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Osun State has described the dissolution of the boards of statutory commissions as reckless and display of executive rascality.
Osun APC, while faulting the decision by the Ademola Adeleke-led administration, also stated that the dissolution of the commissions will not be allowed to go unchallenged through legal action.
In a statement by its chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, on Wednesday, the party insisted that the dissolution of the tenured statutory commissions was a flagrant act of illegality and crass exhibition of administrative ignorance that won’t see the light of day.
Recalls that the state governor, Ademola Adeleke, had announced the dissolution of the State Civil Service Commission, the Judicial Service Commission, the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission and the Osun State House of Assembly Service Commission.
However, Lawa, in a statement, wondered, “Why will a supposed democratic constitutional government not embrace the rule of law in administering the state?
“Those who are thinking for this government have not disappointed the right-thinking members of the public that the Adeleke administration has nothing tangible to do to improve the fortune of the state.
There is absolutely nothing suggestive of the fact that Governor Ademola Adeleke is in charge of his government. If he were adept at the act of governance, Adeleke would not have had the temerity and audacity to abort the life span of the statutory commissions.
“With this dissolution of the statutory commissions, Adeleke is making the state a laughing stock among the comity of states across the nation.
“Let it be known that this shenanigan and an arrant display of an act of lawlessness by Governor Adeleke and his co-travellers would not be allowed to go unchallenged through legal means.”
