In a surprising turn of events, the Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oloyeloogun, has announced his resignation from his position as the head of the state’s legislative arm.
This development comes just days before the end of the ninth Assembly’s term, leaving the Assembly with a vacant leadership position.
Speaker Oloyeloogun conveyed his decision to resign through a formal letter addressed to the Clerk of the House. The letter, printed on the House’s official letterhead and dated June 1, 2023, was titled “Resignation as Speaker, Ondo State House of Assembly.”
In the letter, Speaker Oloyeloogun stated that his resignation would be effective from that day, Thursday, June 01, 2023. He acknowledged the unified efforts of the House in fulfilling its constitutional responsibilities, which led to his appointment as Speaker. However, he emphasised that it is in the same spirit of unity that he has chosen to step down from his position.
The Speaker expressed his gratitude to his colleagues for their exceptional support throughout his tenure. He praised their remarkable and unparalleled partnership in progress and assured them of his continued support and loyalty to his successor as Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly.
