The Precision NG recalled on Tuesday that Nine lawmakers, including the three suspended members had dissociated themselves from the impeachment process served on Akeredolu’s deputy, Agboola Ajayi.

Agboola had defected to the opposition PDP.

Speaking to journalists on their suspension, the Deputy Speaker said he was duly elected and would continue to attend plenary.

He vowed that nobody or any policeman could stop him from entering the Hallowed Chamber.

Adewale on his part said due process was not followed in suspending them.

“If they want to suspend me they must follow normal process or I will see this House as Ondo House of Error and not Assembly. This is an institution.

“This is an arm of government. It is never an appendage to another arm. We are partners in progress not that we should be used against the people of Ondo State. we cannot be used against our interest,” he stressed.
