Ondo lawmakers suspend Speaker over alleged N15m fraud

Speaker Jumoke Akindele has been suspended and an acting speaker installed.

Akindele was sanctioned by 14 out of the 26 lawmakers over alleged N15million fraud.

Reports say that the speaker as other principal officers, including the Deputy speaker, majority leader and others were also sent packing by the legislators.

Also, Hon. Olamide George from Akure north State constituency has been appointed as the Majority eader.

The suspension followed an incident, where the house paymaster was allegedly caught by members of the assembly with the sum of N15million at the premises of the Assembly.

When confronted, the paymaster said he was acting on the instruction of the suspended speaker, Princess Jumoke Akindele, who ordered him to bring the money to her residence.

The house which eventually sat at about 5pm moved that the leadership under Akindele had failed, as the lawmakers were not aware of the approval of the said sum.
