The lawmakers will resume from their plenary session on Tuesday.
The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, waded into the crisis rocking the Ogun State House of Assembly on Sunday evening when he held a 5-hour late night meeting behind closed doors with the lawmakers.
The meeting, PREMIUM TIMES learnt, was held at the Government House in Abeokuta between 7.00p.m. and 12.00 midnight.
Majority of the lawmakers had shunned attempts by the speaker to call for an emergency session with 19 out of 26 lawmakers boycotting the session and other entreaties by the speaker.
Also, only 12 of the 26 lawmakers reported for the meeting with the governor, which focused on the grouse of members against the alleged incompetence and administrative style of the speaker, Suraj Adekunbi.
Other issues reportedly discussed include the belief by the lawmakers that Mr. Amosun was not interested in their welfare.
At the end of the meeting, the governor, it was gathered, pacified the lawmakers, with a promise to address all the issues raised. The governor also asked the attendees to appeal to their absentee colleagues to ensure prompt resolution of the differences in the interest of the state.
The lawmakers are expected to resume on Tuesday and are expected to promptly attend to the screening of the nominees submitted by Mr. Amosun as state commissioners.
