Also, a member of the house added that: “There is no law in the House that cannot be reversed; that is what we have just done today. Nobody can benefit in crisis. Nothing is too big to sacrifice in the interest of peace. We are not voted here to come and be fighting.”

It would be recalled that Hon. Iroju Ogundeji, who represents Odigbo Constituency 1 at the state house of assembly was impeached by 18 out of the 26 members on Tuesday May 22nd, 2018 after a purported misconduct and disagreement with the Speaker of the House, Mr. Bamidele.
