Ondo State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Honourable Bamidele Oleyelogun has debunked the viral resignation letter allegedly written and signed by him on Friday.
In a statement issued immediately after the letter went viral on social media and created tension and confusion in the state, the speaker revealed that the letter is the handiwork of fifth columnists who are bent on throwing the state into anarchy.
The statement reads:
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 which is in circulation is the handiwork of the fifth Columists who are bent on throwing Ondo State into anarchy, particularly the House of Assembly.
The purported resignation is no doubt the the figment of the imagination of the peddlers of such heinous act as l did not contemplate or discussed such 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 it was forged by purveyors of such letter.
The Clerk of the House, Mr.Benjamin Jaiyeola (ESQ) 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 Government of such resignation and I urge my Honourable Colleagues, Staffers of the House of Assembly, 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.
