The only Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, member in the Kwara State House of Assembly, Hon. Jimoh Raheem Agboola, has been suspended from attending plenaries.
The member, representing Ilorin South state constituency, was suspended for an alleged contempt/abuse of privilege, sequel to a ‘Motion Without Notice’ moved by the House Leader, Hon Abubakar Mogaji.
Olawoyin had alleged Hon. Agboola of making a “despairable comment about the House,” by allegedly “calling out the masses to stage a protest against the government and the House of Assembly on a radio programe.”
According to Hon. Olawoyin, such “act at this period of insecurity is unsafe and could lead to chaos,” pointing out how Hon. Agboola allegedly disrespected the House, which was already trending on the social media and urged the speaker; Rt. Hon. Yakubu Saliu Danladi, to order investigations into the matter.
In his contribution at the plenary, Hon Awolola Olumide Ayokunle said that derogatory languages against the House should not be condoned, especially, when such language was found to be false.
He added his voice to the demand on the House to make proper investigation on the matter before any action could be taken.
The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Danladi, assured the House of adequate investigation on the matter and directed the House Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Judiciary to investigate and report it’s findings to the House as soon as possible.
He also directed Hon. Agboola to desist from attending plenary pending the conclusion of the investigations.
