Gboyega Aribisogan has been elected as the new speaker of the Ekiti state house of assembly.

Aribisogan, who represents Ikole constituency 1, was elected at plenary on Tuesday.

He replaces Funminiyi Afuye, the previous speaker, who died in October after he reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest.

The late Afuye was aged 66 when he died.


He was a former commissioner of the state ministry of information and a two-time member of the state assembly.

He was inaugurated as speaker of the Ekiti sixth assembly on June 6, 2019.

Afuye was buried in Ikere-Ekiti on Friday.
