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 Constituency was suspended for an alleged Contempt/Abuse of Privilege sequel to a ‘Motion Without Notice’ moved by the House Leader, Hon Abubakar Mogaji.
It was alleged that Hon. Agboola was making a “despairable (sic) 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 programme”.
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 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 do the investigation and report its findings to the House as soon as possible.
He also directed Hon. Agboola to stop attending plenaries pending the conclusion of the investigations.
