“I Have Not Resigned” – Ondo Speaker Reacts to Viral Resignation Letter

The Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Mr Bamidele Oloyeloogun, has denied the resignation letter he purportedly sent on Friday.

A letter he purportedly signed and addressed to the Clerk of the House, dated June 1, 2023, said the Speaker had resigned from his position.

However, in a statement he swiftly issued on Friday, June 2, 2023, the Speaker said the letter was fake and didn’t emanate from either him or the House of Assembly.

The statement was titled, ‘I remain Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly.’

It read, “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 in circulation is the handiwork of the fifth columnists bent on throwing Ondo State into anarchy, particularly the House of Assembly.

“The purported resignation is no doubt the figment of the peddlers’ imagination of such a heinous act as l did not contemplate or discuss such a 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 purveyors of such a letter forged it.

“The Clerk of the House, Mr Benjamin Jaiyeola, 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 the government of such resignation, and I urge my honourable colleagues, staffers of the House of Assembly, and 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.”
