IGP orders closure of Ondo Assembly over leadership crisis

By Samuel Faleye, Akure
Factional Speaker of Ondo State House of Assembly, has stated that leadership of the Nigeria Police Force have sealed the Assembly over its leadership crisis.
Coker told newsmen in Akure on Monday that the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, ordered indefinite closure of the Assembly.
The Assembly, had on Friday, January 27, impeached the Speaker, Ms Jumoke Akindele, and other principal officers over allegation of N15 million fraud.
The sum of N15 million was allegedly found on the Assembly’s Pay Master, Mr Makanjuola Adesina, who told the lawmakers that it was withdrawn on the instruction of the Speaker for a project which he failed to disclose.
Coker told newsmen that the Assembly had adjourned sitting indefinitely following the police action.
“For now, the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has directed that the Assembly should be locked.
“On Friday, February 3, the police brought a warrant that the Assembly should be locked indefinitely and that was after the House had adjourned its sitting at a plenary held on Thursday, February 2. We hope the police will not be bias in their actions by allowing the impeached Speaker’s faction to have access into the Assembly,’’ he said.
On the impeachment of the Speaker and other principal officers, Coker said that 20 out of the 26 members of the Assembly signed the impeachment notice.
“For clarification, it takes 18 members to sign the impeachment notice, while 10 members can sit in the Assembly to pronounce it and this time around 20 members signed the impeachment notice. About seven members backed out after they had signed the impeachment notice following pressure from the power that be.
“We all plan the impeachment together, but as human beings, some claimed they were not in the Assembly when the impeachment was to be carried out,’’ the acting speaker said.
He appealed to members of the Assembly to come together and work for the interest of the state and not for individual’s interest or pecuniary gains.
