Breaking: APC takes over Ekiti House of Assembly
Oct 11, 2018

-

Some members of Ekiti State House of Assembly have impeached the Speaker, Kola Oluwawole.

They also sacked the Deputy Speaker, Sina Animasaun.

Both Oluwawole and Animasaun are members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Oluwawole, a staunch loyalist of Governor Ayo Fayose, was removed at about 11.00 am behind closed doors.

The lawmakers elected the former Deputy Leader, Adeniran Alagbada while the Minority Leader, Gboyega Aribisogan, was elected as new House Leader of Business.

Alagbada defected from PDP to APC in June alongside his political mentor, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.

The change in leadership was believed to have been effected in anticipation of the change of government.

Outgoing Governor Ayo Fayose will make way for the incoming Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who will be inaugurated on Tuesday.
