Crises amongst lawmakers in Ondo state has taken a new turn.

The letter of resignation was signed by the former Speaker Akindele and five others. They are: the Deputy Speaker, Hon Fatai Olotu; Majority leader, Hon Ifedayo Akinsoyinu; Deputy Majority leader, Vincent Obadiah, Kemisola Adesanya, the Whip and Towase Kuti, the Assistant Parliamentary Secretary.
The lawmakers said their resignation is expected to allow peace reign in the state.
