The impeached Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Kola Oluwawole, who was impeached yesterday, October 11th has insisted that he remains the authentic speaker of the Assembly.

Oluwawole described his removal as an illegality which cannot stand. According to him, “18 members are supposed to carry out a speaker’s impeachment and not 14.” He, therefore, insisted that the 14 members’ action is not valid under the law.

According to a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Stephen Gbadamosi, Oluwawole, those who carried out the illegality were provided police cover and they prevented other members and even staff of the House from gaining entrance into the complex.

“This is bizarre! In a democracy? This is the height of illegality and it can never stand. As the Speaker of the House, I supervised over the last adjournment of the House, which was carried out according to laws and laid down rules.

“I retain the power to reconvene the House and i have not done that yet. How then can some people say the House sat? This is totally illegal. The role of the police in this siege is clear. It was enemies of democracy that purported the House sat. Ekiti State House of Assembly has not been reconvened by its speaker, ” he said.
