Ignore politicians, don't be tools in their hands - Osun Assembly Speaker

Osun Assembly Speaker, Timothy Owoeye Osun Assembly Speaker, Timothy Owoeye

Youths in Osun State have been charged not to allow themselves to be used by politicians as thugs and agents of destruction.

The Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly gave this charge on Monday at plenary.

Owoeye also commiserated with Kofoworola Babajide, the Minority Leader of the House on the razing of his father's house over the weekend.

While condemning the politics of bitterness, the Speaker enjoined guardians and parents to ensure that their children were not hoodwinked into causing mayhem and destroying the peace the State had hitherto enjoyed on the altar of politics.

"I want to charge our youths not to allow themselves to be used as agents of destabilisation. Do not allow yourselves to be used for thuggery and brigandage, you must ensure that the peace that the State is known for remains.

"The peace enjoyed before and during the administration of Governor Oyetola should be guarded for it not to erode the State.

"I want to charge parents to continue to guide and monitor their wards across the State, so that youths will not be engaged in thuggery or anything that will disrupt the peace of the State on the altar of pedestal politics," he said.
