The Kwara State House of Assembly has reacted sharply to insinuations on the extension of the 16 local government chairmen in the state by the state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

A statement in Ilorin, by the media aide to the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Ibrahim Sheriff, said: “the legislature is convinced to have acted ideally over the local government chairmen’s matter.”

“The Assembly considers the extension of their suspension by the executive arm of government. Investigations into allegations against them are yet to be concluded by the anti-graft agency, notwithstanding their defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress party.

“The recent development simply signals a new dawn in Kwara State where social-political affiliation won’t be an immunity against illegality, it reflects our commitment to pursue justice for the people, regardless of political motivation,” the statement added.

“We want to state categorically clear that No member of the 9th Kwara Assembly is by any way or means, in-charge of local government revenue, either directly or through a proxy.

“It is also to be made clear that no member of the House interferes in the running or finances of the respective governments as it does not form part of their statutory functions or duties, the statement added.

It challenged anyone with contrary facts to this effect to present it for public scrutiny.
