Ex- Ogun Speaker vows to take Legal action, says impeachment illegal

Former Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, has vowed to seek redress in court over his impeachment which he described as illegal, null and void.

Oluomo, during a press conference held at his official residence in Abeokuta, on Friday evening, insisted that he remains the Speaker of the Assembly.


The erstwhile Speaker was ousted out of office by 18 out of 26 members of the House, while they unanimously picked the member representing Odeda State Constituency, Hon. Oludaisi Elemide, as the new Speaker.

“I remain Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly. Some members have continued to terrorise me after my emergence for a second term as speaker. I have belief that members have right to elect speaker, but due process must follow.

“Two of the lawmakers wrestled the mace from sergeant at arm, before forcing their way into the chambers to carry out the illegal impeachment. Even if they want to impeach me, they ought to have served me impeachment notice


“After the purported impeachment, they later served me the impeachment notice which I have swiftly responded to.

“I am ready to face panel to defend myself, but until that is done, I remain the speaker

“I have even filed a suit asking the court to determine whether the Speaker of the Assembly could be impeached through a gestapo style,” Oluomo said.
