The Osun State House of Assembly has directed the immediate suspension of the ongoing staff audit for workers on the payroll of Osun State Government, being handled by Sally Tibbot Consulting.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Olamide Tiamiyu, obtained in Osogbo on Monday.
The audit had witnessed pockets of disruption, the latest being the faceoff between the consultant, Sa’adat Bakrin-Ottun and staff members of Osun State University last week Friday during the verification exercise.
Tiamiyu also said the decision to suspend the audit followed an emergency meeting of the lawmakers on the petitions written against the consultant.
He further said the Speaker had constituted an ad-hoc committee to look into the issues around the petitions and come up with necessary recommendations.
The statement further read, “The Osun State House of Assembly has directed the consultant handling the staff audit of workers in the employment of the State Government, Sally Tibbot Consulting, to suspend the process until further notice.
“The directive of the House was conveyed by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Adewale Egbedun, to the newsmen on Monday after an emergency meeting with other Honourable members to review the petitions written against the consultant to the Osun State House of Assembly.
“The Speaker further constituted an ad-hoc committee to look into the issues around the petition and come up with necessary recommendations.
“Consequently, all relevant stakeholders have been invited to the House of Assembly for a meeting on Tuesday 22nd August by 10.00 am prompt.”
