Lagos assembly moves to impeach Ambode

Lawmakers in the Lagos state house of assembly have accused Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of the state, of incurring expenditure from the 2019 budget without presenting it to the assembly.

At plenary on Monday, the aggrieved lawmakers gave the governor a week ultimatum to explain his action, saying failure to do so could trigger impeachment proceedings.

Majority of the lawmakers at the plenary called for the impeachment of the governor while a few asked him to resign.

But Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker, appealed to his colleagues to give the governor the last chance to defend himself.

Nonetheless, he asked those pushing for the governor’s impeachment to start collecting signatures.

Ambode’s relationship with the lawmakers went cold after he fell out with the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
