The Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Dr. Adewale Omirin, and the Deputy Speaker have been impeached and replaced by members of the Peoples Democratic Party in the assembly.
They were replaced with Hon. Dele Olugbemi from Ikole Local Government Area and Hon. Abeni Olayinka from Ado Local Government Area as speaker and deputy speaker respectively.
The new officers were part of the seven lawmakers that defected from the All Progressives Congress to the PDP on October 16 when Governor Ayo Fayose was inaugurated.
But journalists were barred from covering the impeachment process conducted behind closed doors at the hallowed chamber of the Assembly but briefed after the sitting by the new speaker.
Before the said impeachment Ekiti youths and market women had taken to the streets of Ado Ekiti calling for the impeachment Dr Adewale Omirin.
