The former speaker said meaningful development could only be achieved when there is cooperation among the three arms of government.

"I want to charge the newly inaugurated legislators that they must cooperation with the administration Gov. Fayose to bring about meaningful development.

"The leadership of the fifth Assembly must ensure a robust relationship between it and the executive and they must be 100 per cent loyal" Olugbemi advised.

"As a member of the fourth assembly, I can say that we have done our best to legislate on laws that have brought about development in the state.

"Despite the turbulent period at the tail end of our tenure, the House under my leadership has been able to resist the impeachment threat issued by our colleagues from the APC.

"Am so delighted on our resolute to uphold the mandate freely given to Gov. Fayose by Ekiti masses on June 21, 2014," he said.

He, however, called on politicians to be weary of whatever decision they take at a particular time, saying history and posterity would always live after everybody
