Aribisogan (Ikole 1) also asked the Speaker to resign having allegedly surrendered his authority to the governor.

According to Punch, Aribisogan told journalists on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti that he made these demands in his capacity as the Minority Leader, having defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, a few hours after making the demand, the Ekiti State House of Assembly sat and passed a resolution suspending Aribisogan, indefinitely, from the assembly.

He had earlier been suspended for 180 legislative days by the assembly for alleged anti-party activities.

The lawmakers at the plenary also resolved to bar him within a 1km-radius of the Ekiti State House of Assembly Complex till further notice.
