State Assembly denies removing Buhari's portrait from complex
Adeleke stressed that the House has nothing against the President or the state Governor to warrant not hanging their portraits
In a statement issued by the Assembly's Director of Information, Sunday Adeleke on Friday, May 6, it said last week, the assembly still commended Buhari's intervention on the Ilorin-Jebba road.
“The publication is false, malicious and a fragment of the writers’ imagination as each offices in the House of Assembly complex and the two entry points to the complex have the portraits of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Senate President, GovernorAbdulfatah Ahmed, the Speaker, Dr Ali Ahmad, and the logo of Kwara State," Adeleke said.
“It would be recalled that the House in its motion only last Wednesday May 3rd in a unanimous resolution that was widely reported commended President Muhammadu Buhari over his intervention on the Ilorin-Jebba road following agitations by the entire Houses of Assembly of Kwara and Niger States.
“It now beats imagination of focused Nigerians that the House that commended the president will 24 hours later remove his portraits from offices, corridors and other places in the complex," he said.
Adeleke stressed that the House has nothing against the President or the state Governor to warrant not hanging their portraits, as democracy involves harmonious working relationship among the three arms of Government.
