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 Olamide Tiamiyu, Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Adewale Egbedun.
The audit has triggered 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 with a meeting already slated for tomorrow.
