The speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Dr Najeem Salaam who was one of the governorship aspirants of the All Progressive Congress that contested in the primary election of the party has congratulated the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola who was elected as the candidate of the party.
According to a press statement by the Chairman of House Committee of Information and Strategy, Mr Bosun Oyintiloye, the Speaker said he has accepted the outcome of the primary and pledged support for the APC candidate in the September 22 election.
In the statement, Oyintiliye quoted the Speaker saying “Note that I bear no grudge against anyone”.
Salaam, who noted that he fought the primary election with dignity and comportment expected of a leader of the state parliament, said he drew his energy from the huge support from ordinary people in the state.
The speaker, however, urged his colleagues in the assembly to strive to deliver on the mandate given to them before the expiration of their tenure in the next few months.
“In the next few months, this assembly would be winding up and posterity will surely judge us, using our productivity and delivery.
“In that wise, I urge this parliament to set our binocular lenses to all areas of our oversight functions,;
“Set up feedback mechanism on laws we had passed and structures we had consented to with a view to ensuring that our labour is not in vain”, Salaam said.
