Nineteen All Progressives Congress (APC) members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly have suspended factional Speaker, Dele Olugbemi and the six lawmakers loyal to him.
The lawmakers held a plenary sitting in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
At the sitting presided over by the Speaker, Dr. Adewale Omirin, the APC lawmakers also nullified all legislative activities purportedly carried out by the PDP caucus.
These include the receipt and consideration of the 2015 appropriation bill.
They also resolved to relocate the sittings of the House to the campus of the Ekiti State University (EKSU), citing the taking over of the assembly complex by thugs and miscreants.
The lawmakers also voted in favour of the local government autonomy and constitutional amendment giving autonomy to the House of Assembly.
Although Governor Ayo Fayose appears to have emerged victorious in the election tribunal, his disagreement with lawmakers in his state has been regarded as one that needs to be resolved quickly to enable all parties involved concentrate on development.
