Majority leader of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Jamiu Maito has resigned.
Maito’s resignation is coming shortly after the Deputy Speaker of the House and one other member were suspended over unruly behavior.
The suspended Deputy Speaker, Iroju Ogundeji is loyal to the embattled deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi.
On Tuesday, the Ondo Assembly began the impeachment process of the deputy governor but met a stiff opposition in 9 members who refused to follow the 14 members that voted in support of the impeachment.
Recall that Agboola Ajayi defected to the PDP from the APC and will contest in the governorship primaries of the PDP ahead of the Ondo 2020 elections.
