Some lawmakers give reasons why Honourable Tejuoso might not be chosen as Speaker
The flamboyant and influential Honourable Funmi Tejuoso, who will be returning to the Lagos state house of assembly for her 4th term is one of the frontline candidates vying for speakership of the Lagos state house of assembly.She has requisite experience,political influence and all else to sail through but if murmurrings and remarks from her fellow lawmakers are anything to go by,she might not be voted for after all.
According to some of the lawmakers especially the returning ones,their main grouse against her is the vaunting arrogance and ego she displays often,and to the chagrin of her colleagues,they allege that these traits informed her removal from the post of Deputy Speaker she occupied before, and would have culminated in outright impeachment but for pleadings from eminent personalities on her behalf.
Another reason they adduce according to them is her sense of morally decadent dressing,citing instances where she had worn provocative cleavage baring or transparent outfits in public, which they reckon is unbecoming of a 50yrs old woman,never mind Speaker of the state house of Assembly.
A number of them who would otherwise have given her the benefit of doubt claim that her utterances and body language testifies that she is unchanged in her ways,hence they might be reluctant to risk choosing her.
