The lawmakers representing Ese-Odo and Ilaje II state constituencies of Ondo State, Success Torhukerhijo and Favour Towomewo, respectively, have embarked on moves to reverse the declaration of their seats vacant.
PREMIUM TIMES reported that the Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, announced last week at plenary that the seats of the two lawmakers have been declared vacant.
The House acted on letters from the ward level of the two lawmakers addressed to the Chairman, All Progressives Congress, and subsequently sent to the House.
They were accused of anti-party activities and then expelled from the party.
While declaring the seats vacant, the Speaker also ordered that the letter be forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The lawmakers were among those, led by the former Deputy Speaker, Iroju Ogundeji, who worked against the impeachment of the former deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi. Mr Ajayi had defected from the APC to the Zenith Labour Party to contest the last governorship election.
