Political shockwave in Ogun as Speaker Oluomo removed, assembly in chaos!

In a surprising turn of events, the serene chambers of the Ogun State House of Assembly were thrust into chaos as Speaker Olakunle Oluomo was abruptly removed from his position on Tuesday morning, sending shockwaves through the political landscape of the state.

The power shift unfolded through a simple majority decision within the assembly, causing ripples of unrest among the lawmakers. Daisi Elemide, a member representing Odeda constituency, emerged as the unexpected successor to Oluomo, stepping into the role of Speaker.

The new speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Daisi Elemide, rose to the position after 18 members of the house signed the notice of impeachment issued to former speaker Olakunle Oluomo. According to the notice, which was obtained by Ogunwatch, some of the signatories to it include, Adeyanju Adegoke Olusesi, Ayodele Wasiu, Lawal Samsideen, and Adeniran Ademola Adeyinka.

Insiders familiar with the matter disclosed that the seeds of this political upheaval were sown in a previous contest between Elemide and Oluomo. In that earlier showdown, Oluomo had clinched victory, seemingly buoyed by the perceived support of the executive. However, the recent turn of events has dramatically altered the balance of power within the assembly.

The assembly complex itself became a scene of pandemonium, with tensions reaching a boiling point and ultimately leading to the deployment of teargas to disperse the agitated crowd. The abrupt removal of Oluomo, confirmed by an anonymous lawmaker, underscored the magnitude of the shakeup reverberating through Ogun State’s political corridors.

The aftermath of this swift and unexpected development has left many questions unanswered. However, Ogunwatch learned that the former speaker was removed upon being leveled with allegations of misconduct, which included highhandedness, lack of focus and transparency, arrogance, poor leadership style and financial misappropriation.
