The Lagos State House of Assembly, on Monday, October 22, 2018, denied secretly plotting to impeach Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
Speaking on the floor of the House at the beginning of plenary, the Speaker, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, stated that nothing could be farther from the truth.
“We are not embarking on any impeachment process against the governor now.
“If there would be an impeachment, it would be from the governor and if there would not be any need for impeachment, it would be from him, based on his actions.
“Even at that, impeachment is constitutional, so many speakers, senate presidents, presidents and others have been impeached all over the world.
“So, nobody can threaten us if it happens because we are representatives of the people.
“We don’t need the wailers to guide us in performing our duties. It is not out of place for us to do our job,” Obasa added.
The hardworking Governor of the Centre of Excellence just got denied a second term ticket by the Lagos APC. And yet to fully recover from that, Lagosians were again inundated with rumours of Ambode’s planned impeachment.
