Kwara Assembly pardons suspended PDP member



The only Peoples Democratic Party member in Kwara house of assembly, Raheem Agboola has been pardoned by members of the house of assembly.

Agboola was suspended indefinitely in July 2021 after he alleged on a radio programme that the All Progressives Congress’ government led by the governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, did not rehabilitate the road in Ilorin South constituency which he represented in the Assembly.

He was pardoned after writing a letter of apology to the Assembly. He reportedly apologized for gross misconduct to members and Governor AbdulRazaq for telling lies on the radio programme.

Speaker of the assembly, Yakubu Danladi-Salihu, who acknowledged and read the letter of apology from Agboola, said he (Agboola) expressed readiness to make amends with all members of the Assembly and work for the progress and development of the state.
