The Ogun State House of Assembly has suspended two of its members, Dare Kadiri and Solomon Osho, until further notice.
While Kadiri is a former deputy speaker of the house and member representing Ijebu North II State Constituency, Osho represents Remo North State Constituency.
They were suspended for an alleged breach of the provision of the Legislative Houses (Power and Privileged) Act 2017.
The suspension of the duo followed the adoption of a resolution by lawmakers during Tuesday’s plenary presided over by the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, at the Assembly Complex in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.
In his response, Osho said the due procedure was not followed in the suspension process, saying he was not given any fair hearing.
Asked if he would seek legal redress, the suspended lawmaker answered in the affirmative.
Osho said, “I know what to do. Basically, what they are saying is that the former deputy speaker wrote a petition against him to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC); so, he (the speaker) is trying to fight back. Just like they say, ‘when you fight corruption, corruption fights back” he said.
