Ogun Deputy Speaker To Challenge His Removal, Says It's Illegal



Ayobami Ife, Abeokuta

The Deputy Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly,  Oludare Kadiri, has given the hint that he would challenge his purported impeachment during plenary on Thursday morning by his colleague - lawmakers.

Oludare described the removal as an "infraction," disclosing that he had started discussing with his lawyers on how to address the alleged infraction.
 
The All Progressives Congress(APC)  lawmaker representing Ijebu North State Constituency 11, added that the impeachment was also "grossly unconstitutional and illegal."

He urged his teeming supporters, constituents and members of APC in Ijebu North II State Constituency to remain calm as the issues that threw up the unwarranted action would be sorted out. 

He said: "I just received the news of my purported impeachment based on the report of an ad-hoc committee set up by the Ogun State House of Assembly. The development, to say the least, was grossly unconstitutional and illegal. 

"However, I have initiated consultation with my lawyers to fashion out the best possible way to address this infraction. I urge my teeming supporters, constituents and members of my political party in Ijebu North II State Constituency to remain calm as the issues that threw up this unwarranted action are sorted. 

"In whatever capacity I find myself now or in the future, I remain committed to the ideals of a functional legislature, tenets of democracy and good governance."
