The Speaker was impeached by members of the legislative arm during a sitting presided over by the Deputy Speaker, Honourable Bolanle Ajayi.

This was confirmed by a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, Kayode Akinmade on Thursday.

Working with the leadership of the Party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Government says it intends to see all the contending issues resolved in a democratic, fair, and just manner.

There had been internal wrangling in the Assembly that had persisted and degenerated despite several interventions.

The Ogun State Government noted that the Assembly members have openly stated that their grouse is not with the Governor, whom they again pledged their loyalty to.

It however added that it is the prerogative of members of the House of Assembly to choose 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 statement read.

“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”.
