All Is Well That Ends Well For Elemide Oludaisi


February 04, (THEWILL) – Seven months after he had put plans in place and spent millions of naira to throw a victory party in celebration of his anticipated election as the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Elemide Oludaisi of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was robbed of that celebration, cutting short his joy.

All arrangements were virtually in place but Oludaisi had no choice but to cancel the celebration and millions of naira went down the drain. Instead, Olakunle Oluomo was elected speaker in his place. Unfortunately, seven months later, Oluomo, who represents Ifo 1 constituency, got impeached for gross misconduct and corruption. He is currently facing N2.5 billion corruption charges on alleged diversion of the assembly’s funds.

Elemide, a loyalist of former governor Olusegun Osoba, was all set to become the Speaker in June 2023 after securing bulk support from legislators elected on the bill of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to complement backing from some of his party men before everything went to naught. He had made arrangement in his base for a grand celebration before an alleged strategic move by Governor Dapo Abiodun turned things around.


The development forced the cancellation of the victory party by Elemide who is currently serving his third term as a representative of Odeda constituency. Seven months after, Elemide plans a re-enactment of his cancelled celebratory party, after using the same ploy that failed to get him the seat in 2023, with the addition of more stealth, to become the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly.
