ONDO ASSEMBLY CRISIS: Nomalcy Returns, As Lawmakers Hold Plenary

The resolution by the Nigerian Senate mandating the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to withdraw heavy presence of policemen from Ondo State House of Assembly and allow eighteen lawmakers belonging to faction of Olamide George access to the Chambers, seems to be yielding result.
A visit by AIT’s Crew to the State Assembly Complex in Akure this Wednesday, showed that heavy security personnel earlier stationed at the entrance, has been relaxed, as staff and lawmakers went about their legislative business.
Earlier, representatives of both factions laying claim to the leadership of  Ondo State House of Assembly, had a Parliamentary meeting towards finding solution to the current crisis rocking the legislature.
After the parliamentary meeting, thirteen out of the twenty-six members of the House were present during Wednesday’s plenary sitting.
The embattled Speaker, Bamidele Oleyelogun, who presided over the sitting, said peace has returned to the House.
The position of the speaker was corroborated by some of the members loyal to the factional Speaker, Olamide George.
It remains to be seen, how long the peace claimed to be existing in the State House of Assembly, will last.
