KWHA: Kwara PDP Condemns Suspension Of Jimoh Agboola


The Kwara State People's Democractic Party, PDP on Tuesday, has condemned the suspension of Honorable Jimoh Raheem Agboola, member representing Ilorin south State Constituency at the Kwara state house of Assembly , describing the move as unlawful and an affront to parliamentary ethics under any Democractic dispensation in the world . 

In a statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary,Tunde Ashaolu said that, "Honorable Jimoh Raheem Agboola was suspended today following a motion without notice raised by one Honorable Abubakar Mogaji Olawoyin, the house leader citing some comments made by the latter on a radio program about deplorable state of road infrastructure in the state."

"The party also demands immediate reversal of such decision immediately. Ilorin south constituency people have had to endured so much injustice from Danladi led Assembly since 2019."

The State Publicity Secretary, Tunde Ashaolu described Honorable Agboola suspension by the Speaker and two house Members as a "kangaroo pronouncement that cannot be accepted anywhere in the world where democracy thrives."

Ashaolu explained that, "Speaker Danladi who has subjected the Institution of Kwara state house of Assembly to an appendage of Governor Abdulraham Abdulrazaq's office, lacks the power to suspend fellow house member who rise to protect the interest of his Constituency by lending his voice to the deplorable level of infrastructure in the state."

He noted that this is a trying time for the state when Government and governance has been brought to it's knees .

Citing the abysmal level of insecurities and economic hardship across the state , Ashaolu stated that the house under Yakubu Danladi has failed to live up to its constituition mandate of providing checks and balances to the executive arms of government.

"Honorable Agboola by all standard is not an Appointee of Government or of Mr Speaker but was elected by the people of Ilorin south constituency , The house should knows very well that for any action to be taken against such a man, such action must conform with all constituitional processes after due investigation"

“But the kangaroo pronouncement by Mr Speaker following a script from just two house members certainly abused all constituitional provisions" - the statement added 

However, the party call on people of Ilorin south constituency and followers of Agboola to remain calm while it employs all means legally to seek redress. He added
