Ekiti Assembly suspends committee chairman for 180 days

06 October 2016, 15:01

Ekiti - The Ekiti State House of Assembly has formally suspended its chairman on Information, Gboyega Aribisogan, for a minimum period of 180 sitting days, Tribune reports.

Aribisogan was also barred from the House of Assembly complex, saying “he is not to be seen within one kilometre radius of the House of Assembly.”

The house also said his conduct would be watched while the punishment lasts.

According to the assembly, his punishment “is to serve as a deterrent to any member who might be harbouring thoughts of misbehaviour and to Honourable Aribisogan himself.”

Among other things, he was accused of “anti-party activities and indiscipline” by the House of Assembly.

He had been alleged to be holding meetings with Senator Buruji Kashamu and Femi Falana (SAN), believed to be “political enemies” of Governor Ayodele Fayose.

This is happening few days after the House of Representatives suspended Representative Abdulmumin Jibrin (APC-Kano), the embattled former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, for 180 days according to News24.

Specifically, Jibrin was ordered to abstain from the lower legislative chamber for 180 legislative days for breach of privileges of members.
