Following the unprecedented victory of candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded House of Assembly elections in Ondo State, chieftains of the party have affirmed that their dominance of the Hallow Chamber will further accelerate the development of the State.

The Party chieftains, in separate interviews with The Hope, said the ruling APC, with the majority of members of the Hallowed Chamber, enjoined the lawmakers to work hand-in-glove with the governor in the overall interest of their constituents and the state at large.

Their election would no doubt, improve the socio-economic development under the present administration led by Arakunrin Akeredolu when the 9th Assembly is inaugurated.

The party leaders expressed optimism, that the electoral victory for the government of the day is also a sweet story for people of the state, as more dividends of good governance would come their ways following the support the present administration would receive from the new Lawmakers.

According to them, having an Executive and Legislative arms of government on the same page will go a long way in assisting the administration to implement its visions for thorough smooth passage of Bills without rancour.

Sharing his views, Ondo State Commissioner for Justice and  Attorney-General, Mr. Kola Olawoye (SAN), said the anticipated symbiotic relationship between the two arms of government, would go a long way in helping the governor to transfer his lofty aims on paper to tangible programmes and projects.

He commended the Akeredolu-led administration for what it had been able to achieve, especially in the area of infrastructural development even with the little the state had.

Also, a former Lawmaker, Senator Titus Olupitan noted that the House, when dominated by majority of a political party, would eliminate unnecessary delay and squabble between the government and members of the hallowed chamber and would guarantee delivery of more dividends of democracy.

In the same vein, other party leaders, Mr Olaide Adelami and Alex Ajipe, while encouraging the lawmakers to come up with well researched bills that will benefit both the government and citizens, urged both arms to uphold the principle of separation of powers.

They expressed optimism, that the 9th Assembly will breath in legislative business with a call to the lawmakers to ensure proper checks and balances through dialogue.

They admonished the incoming Assembly members to see themselves as one united family with the Executives and collaborate for effective service delivery.

The 9th Assembly is expected to be inaugurated in June with the APC occupying the majority seats with 23 members, PDP 2 members, while Zenith Labour Party has one.

Vote buying has been described as an attribute of poverty and hunger which will not take Nigeria to anywhere but total destruction.

This is the submission of Chief Sehinde Arogbofa in an exclusive chat with The Hope on the electioneering process in Nigeria.
