Members of the Oyo State House of Assembly on Monday unanimously elected a 31-year-old lawmaker from Ibarapa East constituency, Debo Ogundoyin as the speaker of the house.
Ogundoyin was first elected into the Assembly in 2018 after the death of the speaker of the Assembly, Michael Adeyemo from Ibarapa East.
Olagunju Ojo from Oriire constituency in Ogbomoso was elected speaker after Adeyemo’s demise.
Coincidentally, the new speaker is from late speaker’s constituency and also doubles as a son of the late industrialist, Adeseun Ogundoyin from Eruwa, Ibarapa area of the state.
The ninth Assembly is dominated by the Peoples Democratic Party with 26 out of the 32 members.
The former ruling party, All Progressives Congress has five lawmakers, leaving the Action Democratic Party with only one member.
