BREAKING: Ondo Speaker, deputy  impeached

The Speaker and the deputy speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bamidele Oleyologun and Hon. Iroju Ogundeji has been impeached by lawmakers this morning.

Both officers were removed by 18 out of the 26 members of the Assembly for reasons of gross misconduct, the arrogance of power, ineptitude and abuse of office.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, lawmaker, Sunday Olajide (APC-Akure Constituency 2), moved the motion for the impeachment; while another lawmaker, Oluyede Feyide (APC-Ose Constituency) seconded the motion.

After the impeachment of the two officers, the lawmakers elected Mr. Olamide George (APC-Akure North Constituency) as the new Speaker, while lawmakers Abimbola Fajolu (APC-Ile Oluji/Oke Igbo Constituency) emerged as the Deputy Speaker.

The changes were effected in a rowdy plenary session where Jumoke Akindele (APC-Okitipupa Constituency 2) was picked as the Acting Speaker, prior to the emergence of the new leadership.

In his inaugural speech, the new Speaker, Olumide George, said that the impeachment of the two leaders was aimed at correcting certain lapses in House, including misconduct, and not a witch-hunting of anyone.

NAN also reports that 18 lawmakers, out of the 26 members of the House, carried out the impeachment; while policemen were stationed around the premises to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
