Security for Egbetokun hasty, says Commissioner

By Kolade Larewaju
Ogun State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Iziaq Salako, has described the seven-days ultimatum handed down by the House of Representatives to the Inspector General Of Police, Hafiz Ringim to provide security for Mr. Tunji Egbetokun, the factional speaker of the G-15 to reconvene the sitting of the House as a decision done in a haste.

The commissioner who stated this in Abeokuta, while featuring on a Radio programme , tagged Sunday Morning Live On Fm, said the pronouncement by the federal law makers would not solve the crises rather compound it

“As a medical Doctor I see this pronouncement by the lawmakers as treating the symptom and not the disease. What they should have done was to set up a high power committee, which would serve as fact finding, which eventually would report back to the lawmakers after a thorough job before they would now come up with their final decision”
Dr. Salako therefore called on the members of the House of Representatives to retrace their steps by setting up a fact finding committee that would get to the root of the matter adding that the lawmakers by their action the crisis could not be absolved of not being biased.

He warned that the lawmakers should realize that Ogun state was a unit which has its own independence adding that if the ogun state lawmakers had taken a decision which was backed up constitutionally, the onus lies on the members to decide who they want as their speaker.

Dr. Salako stated that since the removal of Mr. Egbetokun as the Speaker Ogun State House of Assembly, the state has witnessed tremendous progress noting that the state under the leadership of Governor Gbenga Daniel would not be deterred by the antics of the enemy from providing dividends of democracy to the people.
