The Speaker noted that the declaration is in consonance with Section 109 (1) G of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended.

He pointed out that the constitution is clear as Hon. Saheed Popoola ought to have vacated his seat at Ojomu/Balogun Constituency of Offa Local Government having defected from All Progressives Congress APC to Social Democratic Party, SDP 

He also explained that since there is no division in the political party of which he was previously sponsored, there is no basis for him to dump it for another party.

Speaker Danladi submitted that the House has therefore informed Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state of this development last Monday for further legislative action as Ojomu/Balogun Constituency is now vacant with Saheed Popoola's defection to another party.
