Ogun deputy speaker fights sudden removal
Ogun State House of Assembly Deputy Speaker Oludare Kadiri has dismissed his purported removal as an “infraction”.
He said it is “grossly unconstitutional and illegal.”
Kadiri, reacting yesterday to his removal, said he was consulting his lawyers to challenge the “infraction” the purported removal represents.
He urged his supporters, constituents in Ijebu North II and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to remain calm, as the issues that threw up “this unwarranted action will be sorted out.”
Said he: “I’ve just received the news of my purported removal based on the report of an ad-hoc committee set up by the 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 future, I remain committed to the ideals of a functional legislature, tenets of democracy and good governance.”
