Removal Of State House Speaker Is Unconstitutional — Mimiko

The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, who spoke on the recent removal of the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mrs. Jumoke Akindele, said it was unconstitutional.

The governor said what made it unconstitutional is that  13 out of the 26 members of the Assembly is not enough to remove the speaker since the law recommended two-thirds votes for such an exercise to be valid.

Mimiko spoke with State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting he had with the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor, however, disclosed that as part of measures to resolve the crisis that had led to the closure of the Assembly complex, Akindele had already declared her readiness to step down.

He, however, said he did not discuss the issue with Osinbajo because the matter was already being looked into.

“It is an internal matter within the House and I think some elder statesmen and leaders in the state are looking at how they can help them to get over the crisis,” he said.
