Other members reinstated during Wednesday’s plenary presided over by the Speaker, Adeniran Alagbada, included: former Deputy Speaker, Mr Segun Adewumi, Mr Abiola Jeje, (Ido/Osi 11), Mr Adesina Animasaun,(Ekiti West 11) and Mr Dare Pelemo (Ekiti East 11)
The reinstatement of the affected members followed the adoption of the report of the Appeal Panel Committee chaired by Chief Gboyega Aribisogan (Ikole 1)
The motion for the adoption of the report of the committee was moved by Aribisogan and seconded by Mr Sunday Akinniyi (Ikere 11), the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Briefing newsmen shortly after plenary, Aribisogan, who is also the leader of the house, said the lawmakers reabsorbed the affected members because they had earlier written letters of apology and showed remorse.
NAN recalls that the Assembly had, sometime in October 2018, impeached and suspended the former speaker alongside 11 other members on the allegation of passage of the N10 billion Supplementary Budget of former Gov. Ayo Fayose.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the spirit of love have made it possible for the successful plenary sitting today for the reinstatement of the suspended House members.
“Though, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) felt that the suspended members, who are mainly from their party should not be reinstated because of the internal crisis, but APC members opposed that.
“The affected PDP members who had earlier written letters of apology are hereby reabsorbed,” Aribisogan said.
NAN also reports that the other business of the day was the unanimous adoption of the Harmonised South West Houses of Assembly Rules and Standing Orders. With this development, there is now uniform Rules and Standing Orders for all the southwestern states of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo and Ekiti.
The Assembly thereafter adjourned plenary till Thursday.
EPL: Lampard to replace Sarri as Chelsea manager after Europa League final
Sarri has struggled to win over fans despite a solid first season in charge at Stamford Bridge, in which he reached the final of two Cups and finished third in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, the Blues are looking to change their manager after the Europa League final and want Lampard to usher in a new era.
The former Chelsea midfielder is currently preparing to face Aston Villa in Derby County’s promotion play-off decider at Wembley next week.
Stamford Bridge bosses have been impressed with the way Lampard has carried himself and are believed to be keen to bring him back along with Petr Cech.
‘Yahoo Yahoo’: Zlatan Ibile chides fans in new single titled 4nights in Ekohtiebo
Recall that Zlatan and Naira Marley were arrested by the EFCC over their alleged support of internet fraud also known as ‘yahoo yahoo’.
While Zlatan was released, Afeez Fashola aka Naira Marley has remained in custody of the graft agency.
But Zlatan has now taken to the studio to release a single entitled ”4nights in Ekohtiebo”
In the single, Zlatan chided those he tagged ‘fake friends’ who turned their back on him while he was in detention.
The song composed in Yoruba is translated thus: “Pretend you were dead, see who will shed tears over your death. Pretend to be broke and see who’ll ignore you.
“We eat and drink together. Just four days and you can’t hide your hatred for me. You guys didn’t expect me to return. Nobody is holy and don’t be quick to judge”.
‘Yahoo Yahoo’ – Naira Marley remanded in prison pending ruling on bail application
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged him with 11-counts of the offence before Justice Nicolas Oweibo.
He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges when read to him.
The judge then adjourned the case until May 30 for the hearing of his bail application.
Justice Oweibo ordered that the musician be remanded in prison until his bail application is determined.
Marley risks seven years in jail if found guilty in accordance with Section 33 (2) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) Act, 2015.
EFCC had arrested Naira Marley in connection with an alleged advance fee fraud known as ‘yahoo yahoo’ in the Nigerian parlance.
Following his arrest, the anti-graft agency filed an 11-count charge against him.
The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos High Court.
