Ekiti State Assembly Speaker, Gboyega Aribisogan, has been impeached from his coveted seat, and he is blaming former Kayode Fayemi for his plight.
Curiously, he has also been suspended indefinitely by his fellow state lawmakers..
A new speaker, Olubunmi Adelugba has now been elected .
Seventeen out of the 25 members impeached the Speaker and elected a new one.
Recall that Aribisogan sat on the coveted seat for just a month, having replaced the former occupant, Funminiyi Afuye, who died in office.
Recall that Aribisogan had on Channels Television’s programme, Sunday Politics, had accused the immediate past governor of the, Kayode Fayemi of working with members of the state legislature to impeach him.
“The majority of members of Assembly voted for me but few of them who felt perhaps I did not follow the directive of the former governor, Dr Fayemi, thought that they would make the state ungovernable for even the administration,” Aribisogan said last night.
“I didn’t have any quarrel with him (Fayemi). I sent a message to him even last night asking, ‘What is happening? Am I no longer one of your loyalists? Why did you not congratulate me?’
“Up till now that I’m speaking with you, he has not done anything. Otherwise, he has been going around calling our members to go and impeach me tomorrow. That is the truth.”
