Following the emergence of Prince Mathew Kolawole as the 12th speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, the current Secretary to the Kogi State Government, Mrs Folashade Arike Ayoade, may soon tender her resignation letter to the governor in a bid to balance the political equation of the state.
Sources from the State Government House revealed that efforts are in top gear for Mrs Ayoade to make this move since she is from the same zone as the current Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly.
It was, however, revealed that her possible replacement will be coming from Lokoja Local Government following the resignation former Speaker, Umar Ahmed Imam, member representing Lokoja 1.
This move according to sources is championed towards compensating the people of Lokoja who recently lost the seat of the Speaker.
Recall that the member representing Lokoja 1 in the Kogi State House of Assembly, Umar Ahmed Imam recently resign his position as Speaker over alleged loggerheads with the Executive Governor of Kogi State.

This marked the beginning of the crisis that enmeshed the sixth Assembly In 2016 leading to the formation of G15 and G5 lawmakers.
