JUST IN: Ondo Assembly Suspends Deputy Minority Leader, Akinribido
By Deji Adebayo, Akure
The Ondo state House of Assembly has suspended its Deputy minority leader, Hon. Tomide Akinribido.
Akinribido who is representing Ondo West Constituency 1 in the State House of Assembly on the Platform of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).
He was suspended over alleged gross misconduct and use of vulgar words in the hallowed chamber.
The suspension of the Lawmaker is coming few weeks after three lawmakers were suspended for similar offence
Mr. Akinribido has been ordered to drop official documents in his care.
He was also ordered to abstain from the premises of the Assembly complex while the suspension lasts.
On July 8, 2020, the Deputy Speaker of the house, Hon. Iroju Ogundeji, Hon. Adewale Williams and Hon. Favour Tomomewo were suspended.
This may not be unconnected with the plan impeachment plot of the Deputy Governor, who left the Akeredolu government to the opposition. In a bid to muscle out two third majority in the house for the impeachment, the suspension might be seen as political.
