Others are a law to repeal some existing laws in Oyo State and other Matters therein 2015 and the Ministry of Environment, Physical Planning and Urban Development law 2015.
The Governor's request when acceded to by the House would give the legal backing to the Governor to reduce the existing 23 Ministries in the State to 13 Ministries for the economic reality in the State and the country in general.
