Speaker, Osun State of House of Assembly, Mr. Najeem Salaam, has expressed gratitude to the electorate in the state for their support in the just concluded election.

In a statement by his Media Secretary, Mr. Goke Butika, the Speaker acknowledged the effort of Governor Rauf Aregbesola who doubles as the leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state who threw himself into the electioneering campaign that gave victory to party in the Presidential and National Assembly elections on March 28 and the House of Assembly one held on April 11.

Salaam reiterated that Aregbesola has demonstrated unprecedented leadership in the electoral struggle and his style that guarantees accountability and all inclusive has made the state secure and harmonious.

he also commended the leadership, supporters and the sympathisers of the APC in the state for standing by the party in spite of some challenges, noting that it was obvious that people have accepted the governing party as their progressive party.

He then pledged that the parliament would continue to champion the cause of the people under his watch, calling for the understanding of the segment of the workforce who are yet to get their wages up to date, saying the matter would soon be resolved permanently.
