The Speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa says the house has no agenda to impeach the state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, for now.
The speaker stated this during plenary yesterday while reacting to reports that he threatened to initiate impeachment proceedings against Governor Ambode if he fails to open the state treasury. Obasa while denying the report, said there is no truth to the allegation. According to the speaker, the state governor has not done anything to warrant his impeachment for now.
“This allegation is frivolous and misleading. We need to clear the air on this fabrication that has been making the rounds both online and other media outlets that the Assembly is planning to impeach the governor. For now, the House is not planning to impeach Governor Ambode and if this will happen, it has to be done the right way. “We don’t need wailers to tell us how to go about our legislative duties. We are not planning to impeach Governor Ambode and even if the house is planning to do that, it won’t be done in secrecy as impeachment is constitutional and democratic,” he said
Recall Governor Ambode was alleged to have been faced with impeachment proceedings following his faceoff with his godfather and former governor of the state, Bola Tinubu, over the APC governorship ticket which he lost to Babajide Sanwaolu.
