Ondo Assembly vows to investigate purported vote of no confidence on Speaker

By Precious Oluwole

Ondo State House of Assembly Spokesperson, Hon. Olatunji Oshati has said that the purported passing of vote of no confidence on the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Olamide Oladiji by some lawmakers has not been formally brought to the knowledge of the whole house.

While speaking in an interview with newsmen, the Chairman House Committee on Information noted that he only read it on social media, noting that some of the members listed to have passed the vote of no confidence on the Speaker were debunking it.

“We need to investigate to know what is actually happening since the purported letter was not signed by any of the petitioners.”

He noted that the Assembly have a proper mechanism to iron out issues or grievances of this nature.

“According to the allegation, l perceived politics, and it should not go to the level of passing vote of no confidence.

“The allegation was about Mr Speaker talking on behalf of the whole House, until I see the video because, l want to believe that the Speaker said 18 members who are in APC caucus are for Aiyedatiwa. He also mentioned that all members of the House are in support of Aiyedatiwa’s government.

“If not, could he be talking about PDP House members supporting Aiyedatiwa in APC primary, it’s not possible and no person can say such thing when actually it’s practically impossible”.

He stated that when the House reconvene at the parliamentary meeting, the issues will be addressed.

“It is a platform where all members express themselves on any issue and have a way of resolving it.

“That is why I said that if not of politics, any problem of this nature could have been resolved within the House. Look at the impeachment saga then, despite how some members dissociated themselves, we still have a good relationship among ourselves and we didn’t allow it to divide us, and I believe this one will not divide us as well. We have a way of managing it”, he assured.
