The Kogi State House of Assembly on Tuesday 28th March, 2017 suspended the Member representing Igalamela/Odolu constituency, Friday Makama for six months on matters relating to anti-legislative activities.

This followed a matter of public importance in the House raised by Hassan Abdullahi Bello of Ajaokuta Constituency, who accused Makama of bringing the image of the House to public disrepute.
In his words, Bello said: The Rt Hon Speaker and Distinguished Hon Colleagues, the attention of the House has been drawn to the anti legislative activities against the House by our Own Colleague, Elder (Dr) Friday Sani (Igalamela /Odolu Constituency) Who until recently sued the House to which he is a member for taking a decision in compliance with the House Rule 10.
“Recall, Distinguished Colleagues, that his activities were recently questioned and consequently an Ad Hoc Committee set up to investigate his activities.
“Having overreacted himself and dragging the image of the House to disrepute, I move, therefore, that Elder (Dr) Friday Sani, be suspended from plenary sitting of the House pending the final outcome of the litigation in court.”
Makama was asked out of the chamber to proceed on the six weeks suspension.
