Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has declared the seat of late lawmaker Hon. Adedayo Omolafe, who represented Akure South/Akure North Federal Constituency in Ondo State, vacant.

The vacancy, according to Gbajabiamila, emerges as a result of Omolafe’s death on August 16, 2021, which was declared at the plenary on September 14, 2021.
