The crisis rocking Ondo State House of Assembly seems to have taken a new dimension yesterday, as a meeting of the 13 ‘rebel’ honourables led by honourable Malachi Coker transmogrified in a serious fracas, and the venue, into a boxing ring.
According to our reliable source at the venue of the meeting, who observed from an ‘invisible’ location. The meeting started when the Deputy Governor joined the honourables in the biggest sitting room at his residence. It all went well in tranquility and decorum, until the Deputy Governor came up with a predetermined leadership formula, having honourables Oleyeloogun as the Speaker, Iroju ogundeji as the deputy speaker, and Olamide George as the Majority Leader. And told the other ‘rebel’ Honourables to go and affirm the above leadership, address the press this morning & come back for some ‘Ghana must go’ cash gifts.
Proportionally, The deputy governor’s instructions met a very radical and violent ‘NO’ from the 5 honourables of the APC Extraction. Who set the venue on vibration in disagreement. These reactions and a counter reactions marked the end of the meeting, as the deputy governor walked out with a look of Anger and disappointment.
However left the venue quickly, despite the freezing cold weather, to compile this report. As the vibration from the fracas at the venue distorted our earlier planned live transmission. ADENIRAN EMMANUEL,
