THE Delta State House of Assembly has slammed a three-month suspension each on two of its ranking members, Pat Ajudua representing Oshimili North and Johnson Erijo (Isoko South II) for alleged desecration of the hallowed chamber.

The legislators, who yesterday resumed plenary after a six-week recess, were charged by the Speaker, Monday Igbuya, to re-double efforts in the business of lawmaking for peace and good governance.

Moving the motion for their suspension, the Majority Leader, Tim Owhefere (Isoko North) seconded by the Minority Leader, Festus Okoh (Ika South), said the sanctity of the House must be respected at all times, stressing that the duo erred in that direction.

Owhefere said as spokesman of the Assembly, it behoved on him to alert members anytime the integrity of the legislature was brought to disrepute, hence the motion to suspend the two members.

Subsequently, the axed lawmakers were saw off the chamber by the Sergeant-at-Arm after a voice vote.
