Thirty-six year old Oyo Speaker Adebo Ogundoyin has emerged the new Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria.
Ogundoyin, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), emerged at a national meeting of the Conference in Abuja following withdrawal of Ogun Speaker Taiwo Oluomo from the race.
The appointment of Ogundoyin was confirmed through a unanimous voice vote by the speakers at the Conference.
This was consequent upon the expiration of the two-year tenure of the former occupant and Bauchi Speaker Hon Abubakar Suleiman.
The Constitution of the Conference stipulates a two year term of office for its elected leadership, which is rotated between the North and the South
With this, the Oyo Speaker l 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 the Chairman of the Conference.
In his acceptance speech, Ogundoyin expressed willingness to selflessly serve the Conference.
He appreciated the outgoing Executive Council for projecting and actualising the objectives of the conference in the last two years.
