Ogun Speaker tussle: ‘Count PDP lawmakers out of your problem’, Atobatele tells APC

The Ogun State House of Assembly Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC have been urged to put their house in order by settling their differences amicably and stop shifting blames on the newly elected members of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, in their tussle for the position of speaker and other principal offices.

1 member of the Assembly representing Abeokuta South State Constituency 1, Hon Lukmon Atobatele stated this in Abeokuta while distancing the PDP members from the crisis in electing a speaker and deputy speaker for the 10th Assembly.

He said, the talks that the PDP caucus is backing either Rt Hon. Olakunle Oluomo or Hon. Elemide Oludaisi of the APC to become the next Speaker of Ogun House of Assembly is unfounded as they have no ulterior interest in who becomes what, being a minority group in the Assembly.

According to Atobatele, “it is in our interests to steadily monitor and master the workings of the Assembly, inline with extant rules and guidelines to be able to deliver dividends of democracy to our people and as well protect their interests”.

“Obviously, we cannot dictate to the majority as a minority group. All those insinuating we would support Hon Elemide over the former speaker Oluomo are just assuming. We don’t even belong to the same political party, so how can we know their workings? Anyway all these rumours are expected”, he said.

Hon. Atobatele, who condemned the sudden shift of the inauguration date for the 10th Assembly said the PDP Caucus is ready to work in unity for the interest of their constituents and the good people of Ogun State
