Speaker, Members Fight During Plenary In Ogun Over Alleged Fraud



ABEOKUTA—There was tension at the Ogun State House of Assembly, yesterday, as 11 members threatened a showdown with the Speaker of the Assembly, Suraj Adekumbi, over alleged fraudulent award of contracts.

The Assembly comprising 26 members also was thrown into commotion during the plenary session over alleged attempt by the Speaker to manipulate the process of the constitution of a committee to probe the alleged fraud


Vanguard learnt that tender Board was recommended by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences, ICPC, which recently insisted that due process, must be followed in the award of contracts by the House.

The Speaker had been quizzed few months ago by the ICPC which invited him to its headquarters, following series of petitions on inflations of prices of cars for the lawmakers and principal officers.

However, Vanguard at the chamber of the house, observed that the attempts by the Speaker to force his loyalist as head of the committee, met with stiff resistance from the 11 opposition members.


The lawmakers while objecting to the nomination of Deputy Speaker, Tola Banjo, as Chairman of the committee, complained about the modus operandi of the process of electing members of the committee.

Trouble started when a report of the House’s Select Committee on the selection of the Tender’s Board was read to the lawmakers for approval.

The report had indicated that Banjo was allegedly imposed as the Chairman of the Board by the Speaker who is the chairman of the Select Committee.

The development drew the anger of other members who vowed to resist the choice of Banjo, described as a stooge of the Speaker.

3 injured as Oyo ACN members demand removal of exco

IBADAN—Scores of members of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Oyo State, yesterday, demanded the removal of the state Chairman, Chief Akin Oke.

Though, the protest was peaceful initially, it later turned violent leaving three persons injured.

It was alleged that some members of state National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, hijacked the protest and wounded some of the protesters.

The youth displayed placards, alleging the interference of the First Lady of the state in the running of the party.

Some of the placards read, “Governor, enough of Madam’s interest,’ ‘Akin Oke Must Go; he is a traitor,” among others.

They vowed not to relent until the chairman and others were removed.

Vanguard gathered that members of the union had got the hint of the protest and ambushed them.

Members of NURTW were said to have attacked the protesters at the party secretariat in Yemetu, Ibadan.

After the protesting youth had been dislodged from the party’s office, they headed to the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, office in Ibadan, where they addressed newsmen.

They specifically called for the removal of the state chairman of the party, Chief Oke, his deputy, Alhaji Isiaka Alimi and the Secretary, Alhaji Mojeed Olaoya.

What nonsense!!!

These law makers are a disgrace to their citizens. Even among students such shameful conduct is‎​ abhorred talk less of among "so-called" honourables.

Most persons are in support of the ACN because they expect something different from them. How sad for these Ogun Law makers to tread the path of the killer-party??

These lawless lawbreakers should be called to order immediately, ACN must not degenerate to that abysmal Level, NEVER!!

Afam, why you hide my post now? I am trying to bring up something which would stem the tide of bigotry here, now see wetin you don do?
In an ACN (now APC) controlled states, if this can be done then what are you going to expect when thugs like these eventually become the majority in Senate and House of Representatives I thought the ACN azzlickers in the house will come around and tell us why this is happening undecided

olutai: FIRST TO COMMENT

What is unfortunate is the fact that your so called 'comment' did not add anything positive/meaningful/constructive to this post. Hey maybe you should go to the bank and tell them you were the first to leave a comment on a Nairaland Post and ask to be compensated. Or matter of fact, see if you can get a humanitarian award for being the first to comment. Dumb A**
