KWHA Suspends Only PDP Lawmaker Over Alleged Insubordination

The Kwara State House of Assembly has suspended member representing Ilorin South Constituency, Hon. Jimoh Raheem Agboola on Alleged Contempt/Abuse of Privilege.

This is sequel to a Motion Without Notice moved by the House Leader, Hon Abubakar Mogaji Olawoyin on Tuesday's Plenary.

Olawoyin while leading the debate on the motion said the Assembly is an institution and not an individual and as such must be respected.

The House Leader accused Hon. Agboola of making a despairable comment about the House, stressing that he was calling out the masses to stage a protest against the government and the House of Assembly on a radio programe.

He regarded such act at this period of insecurity as unsafe and could lead to chaos.

He noted that, how Hon. Agboola disrespected the Honorable House is already trending on social media, urging the speaker for investigation of the matter.

Hon Awolola Olumide Ayokunle (Using Constituency) for his part, said, derogatory languages against the House should not be condone, especially, when such language is found out to be false.

He urged the House to make proper investigation on the matter before any action could be taken.

Speaker Yakubu Salihu Danladi assured the House of adequate investigation and directed the House Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Judiciary to conduct investigation on the matter and reports it's finding to the House as soon as possible.

He also directed Hon. Agboola to seize from attending Plenary pending the conclusion of the investigation.
