IMPEACHMENT SAGA: Court of Appeal okays reinstatement of suspended lawmakers in Ondo

By Dayo Johnson

THE Ondo State House of Assembly, yesterday, declared vacant the seats of two lawmakers over alleged anti-party activities.

The affected lawmakers are Favour Towomewo, representing Ilaje constituency II and the lawmaker representing Ese-Odo constituency, Success Torhukerhijo.

The development followed letters from their wards which were addressed to the Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Ade Adetimehin and subsequently forwarded to the state Assembly.

The Speaker, Mr Bamidele Oleyelogun, who read the letter through the clerk of the House, Mr Taye Benjamin, declared their seats vacant and ordered that a letter be forwarded to the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC.

The two lawmakers reportedly defected to another party before the last governorship election in 2020.
