Ondo Lawmakers ‘Impeach’ Speaker, Deputy In Member’s Residence

Ondo-House-of-AssemblyEighteen of the 26 members of the Ondo State House of Assembly on Tuesday night impeached the Speaker of the  house, Jumoke Akindele, and her deputy, Fatal Olotu.

The lawmakers also elected Iroju Ogundeji and Ayo Arowele, as speaker and deputy speaker respectively.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that the impeachment session, which took place at about 11pm on Tuesday, held at the residence of one of the lawmakers.

Although there is no official word on the reasons for the lawmakers’ action, it was gathered that the house members were angry with the leadership for failing to protect their interest.

According to a source close to the assembly, the lawmakers complained of being owed three months salary, with some of them having no official quarters.

They were said to have accused the leadership of failing to protect the larger interest of members and was becoming a stooge of the governor, Olusegun Mimiko.

Efforts to reach officials of the assembly were unsuccessful, as they did not answer or return calls. They also did not reply to text messages
