Former Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Adewale Omirin has sent a letter to the state house of assembly to see to the reversal of his impeachment by seven Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers last year.
It would be recalled that the seven PDP members had impeached Omirin on November 20 last year and elected Dele Olugbemi who was recognised by Governor Ayo Fayose as Speaker.
Omirin, in his letter dated October 19, 2015 and addressed to the incumbent Speaker, Kola Oluwawole, with the tittle: “Reversion of Unconstitutional Impeachment” prayed the Assembly to reverse the impeachment which violated the spirit and letter of the Constitution.
According to him, “The legislative arm is put in place to make laws for peace, order and good government in pursuant to section 4(7) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended and if an institution that is supposed to make laws seems to be violating the laws, the effect will be disorderliness, hence the action taken on November 20, 2014 should be reverted and all records bearing Hon. Dele Olugbemi be obliterated.”
