Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State says his decision not to interfere in the state’s House of Assembly crisis was intentional.
The State House of Assembly was plunged into crisis after the House impeached its former speaker, Gboyega Aribisogan just after one week in office and elected Mrs. Bunmi Adelugba as a replacement on Monday.
Oyebanji, when members of the Assembly presented Adelugba and executives of the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) to him in Ado Ekiti, on Tuesday, said he decided to stay off the crisis that engulfed the House in the last couple of days because of his belief in the separation of powers.
The governor thanked the APC leaders for their efforts at resolving the issue, saying it is a family affair that can be resolved without external interference.
Oyebanji assured the new speaker of his support and urged her to ensure the speedy passage of the state’s 2023 budget.
