Ondo Assembly Upholds Akindele's Impeachment,Elects Malachi Coker As New Speaker

The Ondo house of Assembly has been opened for legislative business.

Hon Malaki coker,the lawmaker recognised by Rotimi  Akeredolu during the swearing in ceremony for the state secretary to government presided over the plenary.

12 out of the 13 lawmakers in the malaki coker group were present in the plenary.

Malaki coker  was confirmed as the acting speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly by the lawmakers apparently loyal to the cause with the Jumoke  Akindele  group obviously absent at the plenary.

The house hence ratified the impeachment of Jumoke Akindele and other principal officers as against the earlier deal reached to commute their impeachment to resignation.

The house has adjourned sitting to tomorrow, tuesday 21st just as it is expected that more drama may likely unfold in the next few hours or days.
