Hon Akeem Balogun representing Ogun Waterside State Constituency in the Ogun State House of Assembly, was, on Tuesday, elected as new deputy speaker.
Tribune Online recalled that the erstwhile deputy speaker, Hon Dare Kadiri, was impeached by 19 out of 26 lawmakers, last Tuesday, over allegation of gross misconduct.
The new deputy speaker was elected unopposed in an election supervised by the Clerk of the House, Mr Deji Adeyemi, during a plenary session held at the Assembly complex.
Adeyemo had earlier informed the House of the vacancy in the office of the deputy speaker before the election was conducted.
Balogun was nominated by Solomon Osho (Remo North) and was seconded by Abayomi Fasuwa (Ijebu North East).
The new deputy speaker appreciated his colleagues for his election into the office while assuring the Assembly Speaker, Hon Olakunle Oluomo, of his loyalty to him.
