Former Oyo Speaker, Alarape, Turns Down Federal Appointment

Former Speaker of Oyo State House of Assembly, Rt Honourable Asimiyu Alarape has declined the offer of appointment as Senior Legislative Aide by the Speaker, Federal House of Representatives, Honourable Tajudeen Abbas.

The appointment declination was contained in a letter by the Atiba born Hon. Alarape, who was a two term lawmaker and Leader of the Minority in the 9th Oyo Assembly.

According to the letter Hon. Alarape personally made available to Westernmirror.com.ng on Sunday evening, the lawmaker expressed deep gratitude for the appointment offer to Hon. Tajudeen Abbas.

He assured that he remains a committed member of the All Progressives Congress and would continue to do everything in his capacity to grow the party into achieving more election success in the future.

Hon. Alarape however, did not disclose reason for declining the appointment offer by the House of Reps Speaker.

“May I respectfully convey with restraint my declination of the appointment in line with paragraph 4 of the letter which I have not received but has enjoyed generous circulation on social media without my consent or promoting.

“Mr Speaker, I thank you sincerely for considering me worthy of appointment and my brother Honourable Akeem Adeyemi for his confidence in me culminating into this.” Alarape said.

Hon. Alarape however, expressed optimism in a consideration for reward by the party for his support and steadfastness which culminated into the party’s success in the last general elections.

“However, I have been and still expecting reward for my steadfastness and unalloyed support for my great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), not only as a candidate during the 2023 general elections and particularly, as a committed member.” Alarape added
