Lagos Assembly Launches Impeachment Process, See Full Allegations

The Lagos State House of Assembly has commenced impeachment proceedings against Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The lawmakers reconvened sitting to commence impeachment move against Governor Akinwunmi Ambode over continue delay in the presentation and passage of the 2019 Appropriation Bill and other sundry matters.

Vanguard had reported that there were unresolved issues between the lawmakers and Governor Ambode, which has been the crux for the delay in the passage and signing into law of 2019 budget.

The Lawmakers, at the resumed plenary, deliberated on the need to apply the sledge hammer by commencing an impeachment process against the governor over gross final misconduct in the implementation of 2018 budget.

The Assembly alleged that the governor was spending money which had not been appropriated by the legislative arm of government.

Ambode has come under heat in recent times over allegations that he was secretly funding the campaign of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Jimi Agbaje.

Some threats were made against the governor in October last year after the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress which Ambode lost to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the preferred candidate of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

It was alleged by some chieftains of the APC that Ambode was aggrieved by the outcome of the primary and that funds were being diverted through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to fund Agbaje’s campaign. The governor, however, pledged his loyalty to the party, denying allegations of treachery.

Ambode broke with tradition last year when he failed to submit the state budget before the entire House. The state government had claimed that the budget was privately submitted to the House, a report which many of the lawmakers have denied.
