Members of the Ogun House of Assembly on Tuesday in Abeokuta re-elected Olakunle Oluomo (APC-Ifo I) as the speaker of the state’s 10th assembly.

Mr Oluomo was the deputy speaker in the eighth assembly before emerging as the speaker in the ninth assembly. He is currently under EFCC investigation for money laundering to the tune of N2.5 billion.

He has now been re-elected as the speaker unopposed after being nominated by Musefiu Lamidi (APC-Ado Odo/Ota II). The nomination was seconded by Ifedolapo Owode (PDP-Ijebu East).

Similarly, Lateefat Ajayi (APC-Yewa South) was unanimously elected the deputy speaker following her nomination by Oluwayemisi Bakare (APC-Ijebu Ode).

Her nomination was seconded by Olusegun Kaka (APC-Ijebu North II).

The election of Mr Oluomo and Ms Ajayi came after the assembly clerk, Deji Adeyemo, had announced the need to elect the speaker, his deputy, and other house principal officers.

Mr Oluomo, in his acceptance speech, assured the people of the state that the legislature would make laws that would be of great benefit to the growth and development of the state.

“I won’t take your support for granted. I appreciate all members for the opportunity. We shall run one house that will bring dividends of democracy to all the nooks and crannies of the state.

“We shall work together for the progress of the state. We shall work with the executive without compromising the issue of welfare of people and development of the state,” he said.

Mr Oluomo also appreciated Governor Dapo Abiodun’s efforts in ensuring the success of the inauguration of the 10th assembly.
