ODHA Complex wears new look

By Adekola Afolabi


After 40 years of abandonment by successive administrations, the present administration has renovated the state House of Assembly Complex.

Akeredolu who paid an unscheduled visit to the Assembly Complex yesterday expressed satisfaction with what he described as restructuring of the hallowed chamber, adding that his administration has completely changed the face of the Assembly.

Apart from the total remolding of the hallowed chamber including the offices of the lawmakers, the House was also equipped with modern facilities and gadgets necessary to aid the functions of the legislators.

Akeredolu said; this is not my first time of coming here. I’m, undoubtedly very happy at the level of restructuring, let me use that word. When you look at the materials that have been used here, they are solid materials that will last for long,” the Governor stressed.

He noted that since the complex was built over 40 years ago, it is disheartening that no administration has ever deemed it fit to do a major renovation on the building as his government has done.

“It will be a thing of pride to us, and I’m sure members of the House of Assembly will be very proud to carry out their functions in a more conducive and convenient environment. The quality of work is something that is up to the standard expected.

“Everything including their offices and the Gallery has been put in a better shape, and one is certain that with this the members of the 9th Assembly will be very proud and can beat their chest that this is done in their time”, Akeredolu added.

In his remarks, the Speaker Bamidele Oleyelogun lauded Governor Akeredolu for giving them a very conducive and befitting hallowed chamber.

“Mr Governor, we appreciate God for today and we appreciate God for your life. It is very easy for us now to bring our colleagues from other states to Ondo State. Before now, the hallowed chamber was nothing to write home about”, he said

 According to him, the new face of the hallowed chamber can compete favourably with the best in the country.

“This is one of the best. The quality of materials used here is superb Mr Governor. This is my third term in this hallowed chamber, and sincerely in the past years we have been facing a lot of challenges in this hallowed chamber.

“Mr Governor, we will not forget you and history will not forget you. This is a special thing for us”, the Speaker added.

He thanked the contractor handling the project for doing a great job.
