  • Makinde signs Oyo Electricity Regulatory Commission Bill into law

    Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has signed the Oyo State Electricity Regulatory Commission Bill 2024 into law.

    DAILY POST reports that Makinde signed the bill into law on Friday in Ibadan, the state capital.

    The governor, while speaking, said the signing was to allow the state to develop its roadmap for sustainable electricity.

    He added that it is obvious that Nigerians can access the dividends of democracy if federalism is practised as it should.

    Makinde said: “As promised earlier in the week, we are signing the Oyo State Electricity Regulatory Commission Bill 2024 into law today. This law will enable Oyo State to generate, transmit, and distribute electricity within the state.

    “Amendments of the constitution like this are what we mean when we advocate for fiscal federalism. In years to come, as we work towards energy sufficiency, our people can hold state governments accountable on the issue of electricity supply.”

    The Deputy Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Mohammed Abiodun Fadeyi, said this is the first time that the state would come up with an independent electricity project.
