The Assembly, in its plenary on Thursday, took the unanimous decision sequel to the adoption of the recommendations of the joint committee of the House on Public Petition and Local Governments on a petition submitted to the Assembly by eight suspended PDP council chairmen.

But reacting to the summons, Fayose, in a terse statement issued by his media aide Lere Olayinka, said he would not dignify the lawmakers by heeding their call.
