Lagos House Of Assembly Speaks On Move To Impeach Ambode

The Lagos State House of Assembly has said that there was no plot to impeach Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

Speaking on the floor of the house at the beginning of plenary, the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, said there was no truth in the rumour;

“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,” Mr Obasa said.

The speaker added that if there was going to be an impeachment, it would be done in the open, noting however, that there was nothing like that for now.

Also speaking the Majority Leader, Sanai Agunbiade, said the constitutional procedure for impeachment did not harbour secrecy, saying that members of the public would know if such a thing would happen.
