Lawmakers Suspension Reversed By Ekiti Assembly

The Ekiti State House of Assembly has reinstated three lawmakers suspended from activities of the House.

Their suspension came about following their purported roles in stalling the passage of the 2022 revised appropriation budget.

The lawmakers are Yemisi Ayokunle, Ajibade Raphael and Tope Ogunleye.

They were reinstated following the adoption of a motion moved by the Leader of the House, Bode Adeoye at plenary on Tuesday.

The motion was seconded by Biodun Fawekun and was unanimously adopted by members of the House.

The Speaker of the House, Olubunmi Adelugba had earlier read the letters of apology written by the three lawmakers at the plenary.

The lawmakers also apologised for not following the directive of their party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) on the choice of Speaker to replace the late Funminyi Afuye, who died on October 19, 2022.

One of the suspended lawmakers, Kemi Balogun, representing Ado Constituency II had earlier apologized and was reinstated on Monday, October 28, 2022.

With the lifting of the suspension, four of the suspended seven lawmakers have been reinstated.

The House adjourned to allow the various Committees of the House to scrutinise the 2023 Appropriation Bill for eventual passage.
