Osun Assembly Ready To Change State Name From “State of Osun”

The Osun State House of Assembly has passed a bill reverting the name of the state to “Osun State” from the “State of Osun”, which was given in 2012 by former governor Rauf Aregbesola.

News reports that the bill, called “Osun State Anthem, Crest and Flag Amendment Bill 2023”, was passed for third reading at the plenary session on Monday.

Speaker of the Assembly, Mr. Adewale Egbedun, said the bill would be forwarded to the governor for assent.

He said the new bill, after it is assented to by the governor, would replace the Osun Anthem, Crest and Flag Bill 2012.

The new bill, aside from reverting the name of the state, also changes the flag and crest of the state to the Nigerian flag and the Nigerian Coat of Arms.

The State Anthem established by the old bill was, however, sustained by the new bill.
