Ogun State House of Assembly has confirmed the immediate former Acting Clerk, Mr. Adedeji Adeyemo, as the substantive Clerk of the Assembly and thereby conducted swearing in on him, following a motion for the confirmation of his appointment as the Clerk of the Assembly, moved by the Majority Leader, Yusuf Sheriff, seconded by the Deputy Speaker, Oludare Kadiri and supported by the Whole House through a voice vote.
The Majority Leader moved the motion for confirmation of Adeyemo’s appointment, shortly after quoting the House Resolution titled: “HR No 057/ OG/ 2020- Confirmation of the appointment of the Clerk of the House of Assembly- resolved, that in view of the High Court Judgement of Thursday, 4th June, 2020, in respect of SUIT NO. AB/227/ 2019, which confirm the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and the Ogun State House of Assembly Service Commission Law, 2018, in respect of staffing of the State Legislature.
‘’The House of Assembly hereby confirms the appointment of Adedeji Taiwo Adeyemo, as the Clerk of the Ogun State House of Assembly and the Head of the Legislative Service of Ogun State, in consonance with the provisions of the extant Laws cited above”, the House declared.
Adeyemo, an indigene of Ipokia Local Government area of the State, had his Masters in Managerial Psychology, and had worked in various Ministries and Agencies before he was transferred to the State House of Assembly and had been Acting Clerk at different times. He had since been sworn in by the Speaker, after oaths were administered by Barr. George Oyeniyi.
