Barely four days after he escaped being toppled as the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi had another cause to celebrate; as his wife delivered a set of triplets on Friday in the U.S.
There was even more cause for joy as the speaker celebrated his 38th birthday on the same day. .
It would be recalled that the speaker was locked in a battle with the majority group of the two factions of the state lawmakers, which led to his suspension and the ushering in of a protem speaker.
However, luck was on his side as within 24 hours of his suspension, the governor, Ibikunle Amosun, waded in to end the crisis in the assembly.
The 26 members of the House of Assembly have since resumed work with embattled speaker back at the helm of affairs.
When contacted, the speaker’s media aide, Akinola Waheed, confirmed the birth of the speaker’s triplets; saying that the babies and their mother are in good health.
