Ondo Lawmakers Exchange Blows Over Reinstatement Of Impeached Deputy Speaker by afroniger: 3:13pm On May 23
By Dayo Johnson

Akure – TENSION enveloped the Ondo House of Assembly Wednesday as members exchanged blows over alleged directive by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu that the impeached deputy speaker lroju Ogundeji be reinstated immediately.

Consequently top security chiefs in the state raced to the assembly to calm the lawmakers who engaged themselves in a shouting match on the corridor close to the speaker Bamidele Oleyelogun office.

The state police commissioner Gbenga Adeyanju and that of the DSS and others security chiefs led a team of security officers to restore peace in the assembly. The state party chairman Ade Adetimehin was also at the assembly to placated the lawmakers.

Vanguard gathered that the shouting match followed the alleged directive by the governor that the impeached deputy speaker be reinstated. The directive reportedly divided the lawmakers. About 12 of the lawmakers were reportedly ready to reverse the impeachment while 14 insisted that the deputy speaker remained impeached.

Vanguard was informed that the governor met with the lawmakers on Tuesday on the need not to heat up the polity. He was alleged to have asked the Speaker to talk to other members to reinstate the sacked deputy speaker.

Other members reportedly threatened that the speaker would also be impeached if the directive of the governor was carried out. They asked that to give the impeached lawmaker soft landing he should resign instead while his impeachment would be converted to resignation.

More security personnel have been drafted to the Ondo State House of Assembly. Party leaders are still meeting with the aggrieved lawmakers as at the time of filling in this report.

Imagine a Governor, (a former NBA president, A SAN) Instructing another arm of government to reinstate back a sack deputy speaker...

Legislative arm has really been messed up in this country... Especially under this APC government...

Senate doesn't have any power over appointee.
Senate chamber has become a place thugs enter and cart away the MACE without anything been done to the sponsored.

Anyway, fighting is always part of their trade mark in the legislative arm as well...

This is what happens when a governor tries to turn the HOA to a rubber stamp Assembly. The governor has forgotten he can also be impeached by this same HOA that he is trying to command.

So they've started transmitting blows by omission? That's just good.

When people like these lead, what do you expect from the locals?

Akeredolu is not a trained politician, he can't influence the affairs of the state assembly successfully, this will surely come back and hunt his re-election bid when it is time

Is this not the same case as (omo agege) in the senate, how can they impeach a serving house of assembly member serving his ward (constituency) people. Is he on appointment or an elected office holder. What's the diffence between this and what is happening in the Senate today

I thought Akeredolu is a SAN?

How they would he blazingly order another arm of government to do his bidding?

They lose their training once they join APC brand of politics.

Wait a minute, it has been proven that it is only in Nigeria that parliamentarians fight and get themselves injured during plenaries. Are you willing to make millions of naira through non-oil export trade? Click on the first link on my signature.

They are constitutional right to impeach him...and declare his seat vacant, another person will be chosen by his constituents to represent them....suspension and impeachment is a different process altogether.
