The protesters said they would not allow the state governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko to enter the assembly complex to present the 2017 appropriation bill to the members of the assembly, when his tenure remain three weeks.



The budget presentation is scheduled to hold at 12 noon today.

The Assembly which had been sealed off by the state police command following a leadership crisis, would be opened for the governor to present the bill.

The protesters also said they were  also protesting against an alleged move by the governor to send 38 bills to the state assembly for passage into law.

The leader of protesters, Mr.  Saka Yusuf-Ogunleye who spoke with journalists at the assembly entrance alleged that Governor Mimiko was lobbying the lawmakers to earn life pension from the resources of the state.

“We want to appeal to the Governor to leave the state peacefully and not create burden on the incoming administration with his 2017 budget.” Ogunleye stated.
