HAPPENING LIVE: House Of Assembly On Fire As Angry Lawmakers Conspire, Sign Impeachment Notice Against Speaker

Report reaching Post-Nigeria, reveals that some Members of the Ondo State House of Assembly, have perfected the move to impeach the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Bamidele Oleyelogun.

It was gathered that 18 of the 26 Members of the House have signed the impeachment notice.

The Lawmakers are accusing the Speaker of ineptitude, and lacking legislative qualities to function as the Speaker of the House.

It will be recalled, that Oleyelogun emerged as the Speaker of the House, after some Members successfully removed Jumoke Akindele, over allegations of fraud and misconduct.

The House had since after the emergence of Oleyelogun, cleared the former Speaker, Akindele, of any wrongdoing.

It was gathered that Akindele’s goons are the masterminders of the current impeachment notice.

Mukaila Musa, representing Owo Constituency, confirmed the impeachment move, but exonerated himself from the process.

He said: “Though, l was very instrumental to the first and second impeachment at the Assembly. The first one was to checkmate the leadership of the House, while the second one was for the interest of the State and for my party not to be caged.”

He described as mere rumours, the allegations that he had signed the impeachment notice.

Musa however, challenged those accusing him to provide evidence of his signature on the impeachment notice.

“Whoever that must have cooked me up in this mess will soon be exposed by the grace of God. I know somebody from within did it, saying am a member of Peoples Democratic Party when am not.”

However, a strong member of the PDP in the House who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said the former Speaker, Akindele, may go to court to fight for reinstatement as Speaker, having been cleared of any wrongdoing in the Assembly.

The group loyal to the Speaker are accusing the other Lawmakers of planning to impeach the Governor of the State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
