The Ondo State House of Assembly on Tuesday, April 4, lifted the

indefinite suspension placed on the former Speaker of the House,

Jumoke Akindele, and her principal officers, following allegations of

N15 million fraud.



However, Tuesday's sitting was held without the attendance of Ms.

Akindele and 12 other members of the House, Premium Times reports.



At the plenary, majority leader, Olugbenga Araoyinbo, while moving the

motion to lift the suspension, said the recall was to give the three

former principals officers the opportunity to defend themselves on the

allegation of financial misconduct.



The Speaker of the House, Bamidele Oleyelogun, put the question, and

the house voted overwhelmingly to lift the ban.



Ms. Akindele and her principal officers had resigned their positions

sequel to a truce brokered by the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.



The other principal officers who were suspended along with Ms.

Akindele, include Fatai Olotu, former deputy speaker and Ifedayo

Akinsoyinu, former Majority Leader, were also recalled.



CAMPUSNAIJA.info recalls that former speaker Jumoke Akindele had

resigned after she was accused of withdrawing N15 million from the

Assembly's account without the knowledge of the principal officers.
