The Ogun State House of Assembly on Tuesday elected Mr Akeem Balogun as the new Deputy Speaker of the House unopposed.

Balogun represents Ogun Waterside Local Government Area at the Assembly.

His election which was supervised by the Clerk, Deji Adeyemo, during Tuesday’s plenary followed his nomination by Solomon Osho (Remo North Constituency) and was seconded by Abayomi Fasuwa (Ijebu North East Local Government).

Before the election was conducted, the clerk had informed the House that the office of the Deputy Speaker was vacant.

He noted that the former deputy speaker was removed with the support of 19 members of the House, saying the action had created a vacuum in the office of the Deputy Speaker.

It would be recalled that the former deputy speaker, Dare Kadiri, from Ijebu North II State Constituency, was impeached over alleged gross misconduct on March 2.
