18 Lawmaker Send Ogun Assembly Speaker Packing as Elemide Emerges New OGHA Speaker

The Ogun State House of Assembly is in chaos after Speaker Olakunle Oluomo was unexpectedly removed from his position. The upheaval occurred on Tuesday morning and was instigated by a majority ruling within the assembly.

Daisi Elemide, who represents the Odeda constituency, has taken over as the new Speaker, displacing Oluomo after 18 lawmakers voted in his favour.

This shift in power can be traced back to a previous competition between Elemide and Oluomo, during which Oluomo won due to perceived backing from the executive branch.

According to a lawmaker, a state of disorder broke out inside the legislative building, leading to the use of teargas to calm down the upset group.

The departure of Oluomo, which has been verified by an anonymous lawmaker, signals a major disturbance in the political scene of Ogun State.

The specifics of Oluomo’s removal and the functioning of the assembly are not clear, resulting in an atmosphere of doubt.

Stay tuned for further updates as this developing story unfolds.
