We are dying of hunger - Osun State House Of Assembly members lament
Deputy speaker of Osun State House Of Assembly Akintunde Adegboye has lamented on how lawmakers in the South West state have been finding it hard to survive under their current severe economic circumstances. Adegboye was speaking at the birthday lecture of speaker Najeem Salaam who clocked 51 in Osogbo today.

His words:

“As we speak, members of the assembly are still using their private cars to do oversight functions.

“Most times, we sleep in darkness in our official quarters because we cannot afford to fuel our power generating plants.

“But to the people in town, we are the people with deep purse. That is the irony of the situation.

“Here in the assembly, despite the fact that our staff get something at the end of the month, they still look at us as stingy people.

“How about thousands of our constituents that depend on us, especially the sick and the unemployed youths, as well as others with financial constraints?”
