Meanwhile, two bills including Ogun State Commercial Motorcycle/Tricycle Regulation Law, 2020 and State Judiciary Funds Management Law, 2020 have scaled through first reading on the floor of  the hallowed Chamber of the State House of Assembly having been read for the first time by the Ag Clerk of the Assembly, Mr. Deji Adeyemo.

The bills with long titles “H.B No. 033/OG/2020- A Bill for a Law to Empower Local Government Councils to Regulate and Manage the Operation and Union activities of Commercial Motorcycle/Tricycle in Ogun State and for other matters incidental thereto or connected therewith” and “H.
