Ondo: Speaker, Deputy Impeached

The Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly Honourable, Rt. (Hon) Bamidele David Oloyelogun, has been impeached.
He was reportedly removed alongside the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Ogundeji Iroju, at Thursday’s plenary of the parliament.
18 of 26 members of the assembly were said to have signed the impeachment notice.
Oloyelogun emerged the Speaker of the Assembly on April 3, 2017 after defeating another lawmaker, Olamide George with nine votes in an election described by critics as shady.
You will recall that the Deputy Speaker of the House, lroju Ogundeji was earlier this year impeached and later reinstated.
After the day’s plenary, the new Speaker, Olamide George said the leadership change is not targeted at the state government but aimed solely at correcting the imbalances in the house.

However, the impeached Speaker, Bamidele Oleyelogun insists that he is still the speaker.
