The Governor officially received the letter of resignation which was signed by the former Speaker Akindele and five others which include, 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.
Mr. Coker, elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was invited to the ceremony as speaker of the house despite the unresolved issues.
They disclosed that Mr. Makanjuola was interrogated and confessed that the money was ordered for withdrawal by the embattled Speaker.
Meanwhile, the aggrieved lawmakers have authenticated Malachi Coker from Ilaje constituency as the new Assembly Speaker.
They also appointed Ayodeji Arowole as the new Deputy Speaker and Olamide George as the Majority Leader of the crisis ridden Assembly.
The Assembly was reopened for sitting after a month of closure by the Ondo State command of the Nigeria Police Force.
Mr. Busari said were it not for the governor's intervention, members of the association would still have continued with the strike action.
