Osun Speaker Faults Senate on CCB Act Amendment


By Yinka Kolawole

The Speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Najeem Salaam, has expressed his objection to the amendment of Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) acts coupled with Administration of Criminal justice act being currently undertaken by the Senate, saying the timing was wrong and the perception was negative.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Goke Butika, Salaam stressed that the insensitivity displayed by the sponsor of the bills has further aggravated the misconception of the people about the disposition of the National Assembly towards the anti-corruption fight of the President Muhamnadu Buhari-led government.

He charged the lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to as a matter of duty, address the world Press conference and disassociate themselves from the legislative rascality being championed by some Senators who enjoyed confrontation with the executive, in order to be seen and be believed to be working on the same page with the President, and to make a statement that they would not support any action suggesting changing of the goal post in the middle of the game.
