She broke record and made a name by being the first female Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, but what has become of that name 12 months later when she soiled it with rampant wastage of taxpayers fund in a shopping jamboree cloaked as educational trip to London. The first female Speaker of Oyo State Nigeria, House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Monsurat Jumoke Sunmonu, betrayed her mandate.
“The government of Oyo State came under hammer from various groups and the public for allegedly approving the spending of public fund on a trip to London, United Kingdom (UK) by the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Monsurat Olajumoke Sunmonu and wives of members of the House of Assembly.
The speaker is in the British capital with a retinue of aides, some principal officers of the House and the spouses of her 31 colleagues in the Assembly for eight days training on ‘Husband Support.’ They were reportedly being accommodated in Custom House Hotel, London, while the Speaker was said to have led the women on a shopping spree in Peckham. According to reports, the hotel where they were lodged is about £100 per night, with 10 nights paid per person, making £1,000. The trip, which was allegedly gulping N50 million of taxpayers money, came shortly after the return of the state legislators from another trip to South Africa over a week ago.”
Only in Nigeria, where thousands of student lack scholarships/funds to continue education and wives of legislators are sponsored on all paid trip to London to see the London bridge, learn how to make sandwich and any other training deemed beneficiary to their husband and to the country as a whole!
