Oyo Assembly passes bill for state anthem, logo

The Oyo State House of Assembly has passed the state's Anthem and Logo
Bill 2017 into law.

The House presided over by its Speaker, Hon. Olagunju Ojo, passed the
bill after the House Committee on Special Duties chaired by Hon.
Gbenga Oyekola presented its report on the bill on Tuesday.

The House, after considering the bill clause by clause and
constituting the plenary to the committee of the whole, unanimously
gave consent to the passage.

Oyekola, while speaking after the plenary, said that the bill was
aimed at re-awakening Oyo State residents to their responsibilities,
duties and loyalty to the state.

He said, "Prior to the passage of the bill, these was no law to back
the anthem and the logo of the state.

"It is incumbent on the State House of the Assembly to have a law that
will back the anthem and logo because without this law the content of
the state's letterheads with the logo could be deemed null and void.

"The passage of the bill will also allow the younger generation to
attach importance to the duty of upholding the honour and the
integrity of the state."
