Impeachment: Ogun legislators have prerogative to elect leader – Abiodun

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Thursday broke his silence over the ongoing crisis in the House of Assembly following the impeachment of the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo.

Eighteen lawmakers on Tuesday impeached Oluomo and elected Elemide Oludaisi representing Odeda constituency as the new speaker.

According to the house Oluomo was impeached due to gross misconduct which bothers on high handedness, lack of focus and transparency, arrogance and poor leadership style, financial misappropriation and inciting members against themselves.

Abiodun who broke his silence more than 48 hours after the drama, said the lawmakers have prerogative to choose their leader in line with the constitution.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Kayode Akinmade,Abiodun promised to intervene in the crisis alongside the leadership of the APC in the state.

The statement partly reads, “Working with the leadership of our Party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Government intends to see all the contending issues resolved in a democratic, fair, and just manner.

“ It is the prerogative of members of the House of Assembly to chose their leadership in line with the constitution and the law guiding the conduct of the Assembly.

“ Given that the Ogun electorate gave us a mandate to represent their best interests and deliver democratic dividends that will significantly improve their well-being, the Ogun State Government, along with the Party leadership, have intervened to ensure that whatever disagreement members have is resolved peacefully and amicably, so that the delivery of democratic dividends to our people will not be hampered in any way.

“ The Ogun State Government considers all members of the House of Assembly as partners in the Building our Future agenda and will always prioritise issues that affect them.
