Inaugurating the board members at the Local Government Service Commission, Government Secretariat, Abere, Osogbo, Governor Oyetola, said the appointment of new members to man the Commission, was aimed to further entrench the ties between the executive and legislative arms of government in the State.
The Governor noted that the executive under his watch, had enjoyed unparallel cooperation with the other two arms of government in the State, with each working dutifully to fulfill its constitutional mandates without undue interference.
