A High Court sitting in Akure, Ondo State capital, on Friday, invalidated the suspension of four lawmakers who refused to sign the impeachment notice of the state deputy governor, Mr Alfred Agboola Ajayi. The lawmakers, who include he  Deputy Speaker, Mr Ogundeji Iroju, the only woman in the House, Mrs. Favour Tomomowo, Wale Williams and Tomide  Akinribido, were suspended by the House of Assembly for refusing to sign the impeachment notice of the deputy governor.

The presiding judge, Justice Ademola Bola, ruled that the suspension of the lawmaker was illegal, null and void and of no effect, saying the Speaker of the House of Assembly, as well as other members, had no power to suspend any member of the Assembly.

The judge in his verdict held that the suit which had the House of Assembly, the Speaker, the Deputy Majority Leader,  Oladiji Olamide Adesanmi, the Parliamentary Secretary, Prince Abayomi Akinruntan, and the Clerk of the House, Mr.  Bode Adeyelu, as defendants, violated sections 90, 91, 106 and 117 of the 1999 constitution of Nigeria.
