STATE GOVERNMENT
Each of the thirty-six States that make up the Nigerian Federation is administered by a Chief Executive. The Chief Executive is the Governor of the State and is elected, like the president, to a four-year term of office in the first instance. The Governor is assisted in the discharge of his duties and responsibilities by a Deputy Governor. The Governor is empowered to appoint Commissioners and Advisers and to assign responsibilities to them. The Governor, Deputy Governor and Commissioners constitute the State Executive Council. They cannot be members of the State House of Assembly.

The State House of Assembly is the unicameral legislature for the State. It comprise representatives from all the local government areas within the State, it exercises identical functions at the State level with those of the National Assembly at the Federal level. It makes laws for the good governance of the State, and acts as a check and balance on the powers and actions of the State's Chief Executive. The House of Assembly of each State consists of three times the total number of seats which the State has in the House of Representatives.

The Judiciary (also known as the judicial system) is the system of courts that interprets and applies the law in the name of the state. The judiciary also provides a mechanism for the resolution of disputes. Under the doctrine of the separation of powers, the judiciary generally does not make law (that is, in a plenary fashion, which is the responsibility of the legislature) or enforce law (which is the responsibility of the executive), but rather interprets law and applies it to the facts of each case. This branch of the state is often tasked with ensuring equal justice under law. It usually consists of a court of final appeal (called the "Supreme court" or "Constitutional court"), together with lower courts.

Oyo state was formed in 1976 from the former Western State, and originally included Ọsun State, which was split off in 1991. Under the Nigerian 1999 constitution the government of Oyo State, and those of the other 35 Nigerian States, is divided into three branches to be in line with the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which is also three tier: the executive branch, the legislative branch and the judiciary. The executive branch of Oyo State government is headed by an elected executive governor who presides over the State Executive Council made up of appointed cabinet members. The present governor of Oyo State is Senator Abiola Ajimobi with Chief Moses Alake Adeyemo as deputy governor. The legislative branch is headed by an elected Speaker of the House of Assembly. The current Speaker is Monsurat Sunmonu. And lastly, the judiciary is headed by the Chief Judge of Oyo State High Court. The present and acting Chief Judge of the state is Badejoko Olateju Adeniji who replaced Olagoke Ige.

The Office of the Governor is responsible for the effective coordination of all government activities for good government. The core functions of the office of the Governor are:


 
REPORT IT – please let the office of the Governor know about problems with any of the services or issues so that they can deal with it. For example: complaints & suggestions on education, environmental protection, housing and town planning etc.

APPLY FOR IT – apply for many of the services and opportunities. For example: school place, jobs, planning permission, disposal of waste, recycling containers etc.

SAY IT – have your say on State’s consultations, provide feedback or to get involved, on issues such as education, public health, environment, sports etc.

PAY FOR IT – pay for charges and invoices such as taxes, rates, licences, fees and fines etc
