The Oyo State Assembly led by the speaker, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin may soon announce the suspension of 11 lawmakers who were believed to be working against the House leadership and the directives of Governor Seyi Makinde.

The alleged erring lawmakers include:
Olorunpoto Oluwafemi Cephas representing Oyo East/Oyo West state constituency, Olufunke Comforter, lawmaker representing Ibadan North constituency I, and Ibadan Northeast constituency 1 lawmaker, Hon. Abiodun Babalola,

Others are, Waheed Akintayo, a lawmaker representing the Oluyole state constituency; Bisi Oluranti Micheal lawmaker representing Ogbomoso North; Ibraheem Shittu, representing Saki West; Abdulazeez Musbau, a lawmaker representing Kajola state constituency; Jimoh Lukman, lawmaker representing Oorelope state constituency; Ayinde Waliu lawmaker representing Irepo/Olorunsogo; Olajide Operinde, lawmaker representing Afijio state constituency and Dauda Olalere; lawmaker representing Ibadan North West.

Westerndailynews.com gathered that the state governor gave his support to the leadership of the House for the suspension of the alleged erring lawmakers.

According to reliable sources, the accused lawmakers, mostly first-timers have been tagged as rebels, however, the new development is supposedly aimed at cutting the lawmakers to size.

A source close to the governor said the straw that broke the camel’s back for the lawmakers was the petition that was written to the governor against Ogundoyin about their Sallah gifts from the executive.

” The new lawmakers have always felt being cheated in the House of Assembly, so they felt to fight for what they claim is their rights.

The source said the new lawmakers who had always not been comfortable with the leadership of Rt. Hon. Ogundoyin, took their grievance to the governor through a petition, complaining about the alleged insincerity of the speaker.

The lawmakers in their petition complained about the decision of the speaker to procure the approved lawmakers’ cars from an unauthorized dealer with no records of dealing with new and standard automobiles.

The lawmakers reportedly claimed that Ogundoyin has already negotiated foreign used 2022 model cars instead of approved 2023 model brand new cars for all the lawmakers.

It was gathered that the said lawmakers while registering their annoyance had told the speaker, Ogundoyin to patronize recognized automobile dealers such as Elizade Motors rather than dealing with road side car sellers.

Westerndailynews.com also gathered in the petition made to the governor, the lawmakers also accused Rt. Hon. Ogundoyin of withholding Sallah funds released by the governor.

From the information gathered, Governor Seyi Makinde did not release any funds for the House of Assembly for Sallah against the lawmaker’s claim, as well as being indisposed about the petition raised against the speaker.

It was however gathered that the governor’s decision to keep aloof from State assembly issues has installed more power on the speaker and his decision as of this evening is to suspend all the alleged erring lawmakers.
