Confusion As Police Seal Ondo Assembly Complex, Speaker Denies Resignation


There is palpable tension at the Ondo State House of Assembly complex in Alagbaka as armed policemen have taken over the State House of Assembly, amid the final plenary sitting by lawmakers of the 9th Assembly. The entrances leading to the assembly complex were cordoned off with police vehicles.

This may not be unconnected to the alleged resignation of Bamidele David as Speaker of the Ondo Assembly.

The letter was dated June 01, 2023.


1. Please permit me to inform you that I, Rt. Hon. Oleyelogun, Bamidele David ceases to function as Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly. This follows my decision to resign from the position with effect from today.

2. As you are aware, this Honourable House has always discharged its constitutional obligations as one indivisible family. That was the spirit that propped me to the exalted position as Speaker. It is in light of that same spirit that I resign from the position.

3. May I use this medium to express my appreciation to ail my colleagues who have been wonderful partners in progress. I must say I enjoyed their enviable and uncommon support for the period I held sway as Speaker, Ondo State House of Assembly. I will extend same level of support and loyalty to whoever succeeds me as Speaker of this Honourable House.

Thanks and please, accept the assurances of my highest regards.

Rt. Hon. Oloyelegun, Bamidele David

However, the Speaker has debunked same.


This is to notify the general public that,I Rt Hon Oleyelogun Bamidele David did not resign my position as the Speaker of the House.

The purported letter of resignation which is in circulation is the handiwork of the fifth Columists who are bent on throwing Ondo State into anarchy, particularly the House of Assembly.

The purported resignation is no doubt the the figment of the imagination of the peddlers of such heinous act as l did not contemplate or discussed such move with any member of the Assembly or family members. Let me tell members of the public that the purported letter of resignation did not emanate from me as it was forged by purveyors of such letter.

The Clerk of the House,Mr.Benjamin Jaiyeola (ESQ)has informed me that he did not receive any letter of resignation which has given credence to the fact that the faceless writer is not informed of the process through which such weighty exercise can take. I have not informed the Executive Arm of Government of such resignation and I urge my Honourable Colleagues, Staffers of the House of Assembly, Members of my Constituency to disregard the letter in its entirety and also urge the Security Agencies to investigate this false and malicious letter that has emanated from the enemies who are working against the existing peace in the State.


Rt.Hon.Oleyelogun Bamidele David

Speaker,Ondo State House of Assembly.
