Breaking: Abiodun absent, as Ogun assembly re-elects Oluomo Speaker

The Ogun state House of Assembly has reelected the immediate past speaker, Rt. Hon Olakunle Oluomo, as the 10th speaker of the state house of Assembly.

The state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, was however conspicuously absent at the Inauguration held Tuesday, at the assembly chamber, located Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.

After about four hours of intermittent breaks on the account of security threat, the Clark of the assembly, Deji Adeyemi, therefore, called the assembly to order, while asking for nomination for the election to the office of speaker and deputy speaker.

Hon. Lamidi Musefiu from Ado-Odo Ota state constituency 2 nominated Oluomo.

In the absence of further nominations, the Clark therefore declared Oluomo as speaker-elect.

The deputy speaker, Hon. Ajayi Bolanle, from Yewa South State constituency was thereafter nominated by Hon. Bakare Oluwayemisi which was duly seconded by Hon. Odunuga Olusegun Kaka.

The election of other principal officers into the 10th state assembly followed, just as it drew the curtain on the intrigues that has stalled the Inauguration for about a week.

Recall that the Ogun state governor, Dapo Abiodun was allegedly disposed to returning Oluomo who led 9th assembly as the speaker, while feelers have it that majority of the members-elect which comprises of nine opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) wanted Hon. Oludaisi Elemide.
