IBADAN – The 36-year-old Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Honourable Adebo Ogundoyin on Saturday emerged the new Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria.

Hon Ogundoyin, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, emerged at a national meeting of the Conference in Abuja following the withdrawal of the Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon. Taiwo Oluomo from the race.

The appointment of Ogundoyin was thereafter confirmed through a unanimous voice vote by the speakers

in attendance at the Conference.

This was consequent upon the expiration of the two-year tenure of the leadership of the Speaker of Bauchi State House of Assembly, Hon Abubakar Suleiman.

The Constitution of the Conference stipulates a two year term of office for its elected leadership and this is rotated between the Northern and the Southern part of the country.

This time it is the turn of the Southern region to produce the Chairman of the Conference.

With this, the Oyo State Speaker has made history by becoming the youngest Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria since its establishment in 1999.

This is also the first time a member of an opposition party will emerge as the Chairman of the Conference.

In his acceptance speech, Oyo Speaker, Hon Adebo Ogundoyin expressed his willingness to selflessly serve the Conference.

“I therefore accept this honor with a great sense of gratitude, humility, responsibility and an overwhelming determination to selflessly serve this assemblage of highly revered Rt. Hon Speakers of Nigeria’s State legislatures.
