Ogun Assembly Pardons Suspended Lawmaker Osho

By Jumoke Adeogun Abeokuta

Ogun State House of Assembly has pardon one of the two members it recently suspended, Hon. Solomon Osho, representing Remo North State Constituency from an indefinite suspension, following deliberation on his appeal and subsequent acceptance of his appeal letter which was acknowledged at the previous plenary.

Osho's recall followed the presentation of the report of the Whole House by the Deputy Speaker, Akeem Balogun in respect of H.R No 131/OG/2022 at a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo.

Subsequently, the Majority leader, Yusuf Sheriff moved the motion for the adoption of the report, which was supported by other lawmakers through a voice vote.

The report partly reads, “members at the meeting discussed the letter of appeal extensively based on the passionate plea and remorse showed by Hon. Osho as well as tendering apology for whatever he might have done to warrant the suspension, as it was never intentional and without prejudice to the Rights and Privileges of the Hallowed House.

Members observed that going by the previous conducts of the suspended Hon. Member, which has always been with decorum and respect for constituted authority and having promised to also continue to keep same sacred till the end of his tenure as a worthy representative of his people, members agreed that his appeal be graciously considered.

The Committee resolved that the suspension be revoked and Hon. Osho Solomon Oluwaseyi be reinstated with effect from today, Tuesday 4th October, 2022.”

It would be recalled that the Assembly on 13th September, 2022 suspended the former Deputy Speaker, Dare Kadiri and Hon. Solomon Osho in line with the provisions of sections 14 and 15 of the Legislative Houses (Powers and Privileges) Act, 2017.
