Sacked Female Speaker of Ondo Assembly gets Her Job Back

Members of the Ondo State House of Assembly have reversed the impeachment of the Speaker, Mrs. Jumoke Akindele, and her deputy, Mr. Fatai Olotu.

Eighteen of the 26 legislators in the state had on Tuesday night signed the impeachment of Akindele and her deputy and announced Mr. Iroju Ogundeji representing Odigbo Constituency 1 as the speaker and Mr. Ayo Arowele from Owo Constituency 1 as the deputy.

But while addressing the press at the Governor’s Office on Wednesday, the Chairman House Committee on Information, Mr. Olamide George, said the crisis in the Assembly had been resolved.
He said, “Before the plenary today, members of the Assembly at a larger and official gathering, met to review the situation and consequently resolved to reverse the impeachment of the speaker and her deputy. The House of Assembly remains united and doing its constitutional responsibilities.”

George, who did not respond to any question from the journalists, left the venue immediate after reading his short speech.
