Lagos Assembly Begins Impeachment Move Against Ambode

The Lagos State House of Assembly has commenced impeachment move against the Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, News Proof reliably gathered

This, according to sources is as a result of the frosty relationship between the Executive and the Legislative arms of government in the State

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

Governors 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.

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

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.
