JUST IN: Ondo Assembly Suspends Another Lawmaker



Ondo Assembly

The Ondo State House of Assembly on Tuesday suspended the lawmaker representing Ondo West Constituency 1, Hon. Leonard Tomide Akinribido.

Naija News reports that Hon. Akinribido is the only lawmaker elected on the platform of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).

He was suspended for alleged gross misconduct and use of vulgar words against Speaker Bamidele Oleyelogun in the Hallowed Chamber and on WhatsApp platform.

Akinribido was ordered to drop official documents in his care and asked to stay away from the premises of the Assembly complex during the period of the suspension.

Recall that the Ondo Assembly had on July 8, 2020, suspended the Deputy Speaker of the House, Hon. Iroju Ogundeji, Hon. Adewale Williams and Hon. Favour Tomomewo for allegedly contravening the standing order of the House during a rowdy plenary.

The suspended lawmakers, it was alleged are those loyal to the embattled deputy governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi.

The House had made attempts to impeach Ajayi for alleged gross misconduct, but the attempts failed as the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Oluwatoyin Akeredolu refused to constitute panel of inquiry to investigate the allegations leveled against Ajayi.
