Here is the face of the paymaster of the Ondo State House of Assembly who literally sacked the first female Speaker, Jumoke Akindele, by his action.
The paymaster claimed he was asked to withdraw N15million in cash from the bank. The money stacked inside a ‘Ghana Must Go’ bag was meant to be delivered in Akindele’s home, according to him.
But the paymaster brought the bag to the Assembly Complex, where he was found out by other
members of the assembly.
Questioned on the ownership of the money, he reportedly said it was meant for Akindele.
This prompted an instant rebellion with 20 out of the 26 members of the assembly moving to impeach the speaker at a short session.
According to Vanguard Online, 15 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and five member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) combined to carry out the rebellion.
An Acting speaker, Malachi Coker and deputy speaker, Ayodele Arowele were elected. Olamide George was elected as the majority leader.
