The suspension of three more lawmakers in Ekiti has been lifted.

The Ekiti State House of Assembly has reinstated three lawmakers who were suspended from House activities for their roles in delaying the passage of the 2022 revised appropriation budget.

Yemisi Ayokunle, Ajibade Raphael, and Tope Ogunleye are the legislators.

Their reinstatement followed the passage of a motion proposed by House Leader Bode Adeoye in plenary on Tuesday.

The Motion, seconded by Biodun Fawekun was unanimously adopted by members of the House.

The Speaker of the House, Olubunmi Adelugba had earlier read the letters of apology written by the three lawmakers at the plenary.

The lawmakers apologised for not following the directive of their party, the All Progressive Congress on the choice of Speaker to replace the late Funminyi Afuye, who died on the 19th of October, 2022, after a brief illness.

One of the suspended lawmakers, Kemi Balogun, representing Ado Constituency II had earlier apologized and was reinstated on Monday, October 28, 2022.

With the lifting of the suspension, four of the suspended seven lawmakers have been reinstated.

The House adjourned sine die, thereafter, to allow the various Committees of the House to scrutinise the 2023 Appropriation for eventual passage.
