Ado Ekiti - Few hours after Ayodele Fayose was sworn- in as the new governor of Ekiti State, the state’s House of Assembly has been shut down for one month by the Speaker of the House, Olawale Omirin reports NewsDay.
The shut down was to preempt any attempt by lawmakers loyal to the governor from going ahead with their plans to commence impeachment proceedings against the Speaker.
Fayose loyalists in the House were said to have decided that the best option was to remove Omirin to allow for easy ride of the polity by the new administration.
It would be recalled that six of the All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in the House defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the swearing- in ceremony of Fayose on Thursday.
