Olugbemi presided over a seven-member House that purportedly impeached the then Speaker of the Assembly, Adewale Omirin during Fayose’s running battle for survival with the former Assembly members.
On why he rejected the appointment, Olugbemi said his action was based on principle.
He said he was unhappy with the manner his appointment as a member of the commission was announced in the media without Fayose first consulting him.
