The Delta State House of Assembly on Tuesday recalled its suspended lawmaker, Edoja Akpodiete, representing Ughelli North I State Constituency.

It would be recalled that Akpodiete was suspended on Sept. 26 over alleged gross misconduct, for a period of six months.

The recall of the lawmaker followed a motion moved by the Deputy Majority Leader of the House, Johnson Erijo.

Erijo said that the lawmaker had shown some signs of remorse, adding that “he has also demonstrated that he is thoroughly remorseful for his actions, having realised his mistakes and also in the spirit of the yuletide season.’’

The motion, which was unanimously supported, was seconded by Efe Ofobruku, representing Uvwie constituency in the House.
