Ekiti State House of Assembly suspends Deputy Chief Whip

Ekiti State House of Assembly has suspended indefinitely its recently impeached Chief Whip, Mr Akinniyi Sunday of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who represents Ikere Constituency II in the Assembly. According to reports, the suspension was sequel to the submission of the report of an Ad hoc Disciplinary Committee of the House, headed by Mr Fajemilehin Ayodele.

Fajemilehin disclosed that all efforts towards getting the lawmaker to defend himself proved abortive due to his refusal to honour the invitation of the committee. Allegations levelled against Sunday included violent conduct against other members, absenteeism, sleeping on duty, gross abuse of office and anti-party activities.
