The 10th Ogun State House of Assembly is to be inaugurated on June 13 for yet another legislative period of four years.

After the March 18 House of Assembly election, some of the 26 lawmakers who sought reelection lost their bids to return to the House as they were defeated by the opposition party.

The election storm ‘blew away’ the Deputy Speaker, Akeem Balogun, who lost to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ogun Waterside. It also overwhelmed the Chief Whip, Atinuke Bello, who also lost to the PDP in Odogbolu..

The Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo narrowly escaped defeat as he defeated the PDP candidate with less than 1,000 votes, even though he lost a supplementary election held to conclude the process.

Naija247news observes that the tenth Ogun Assembly has 17 lawmakers elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC,, while the PDP has nine. This keeps the APC in control of the House by having the majority.

With their inauguration on Tuesday, the lawmakers are expected to elect a Speaker, a Deputy Speaker and other presiding officers. Based on the strength of the APC lawmakers in the House, the election will practically be an APC affair, except for the position of the Minority Leader.(www.naija247news.com)
