ONDO: IMPEACHMENT PLOT AGAINST AIYEDATIWA THICKEN AS 9 LAWMAKERS SIGNED MISCONDUCT PETITION

It will be recalled that the letter of resignation of the Ondo Deputy Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa went viral last week and the Deputy Governor has since debunked the rumour and pledged his loyalty to his boss, Gov. Akeredolu. But from all indications, it was gathered that members of the Ondo State House of Assembly have commenced the process of impeaching the state Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

This is coming following an emergency plenary session summoned by the House of Assembly on Wednesday, with heavy presence of security men at the Assembly gate.

At least 23 lawmakers have already appended their signatures, supporting the impeachment notice against Aiyedatiwa.

The Deputy Governor is under investigation for alleged gross misuse of office and might be eased out of office through impeachment.

In the meantime, the Ondo State House of Assembly has directed the Clerk of the House, Benjamin Jaiyeola to write the Deputy Governor, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa over allegations of gross misconduct levelled against him.

The Petition which has been signed by Nine out of 26 Members of the House was read during the plenary presided over by the Speaker, Olamide Oladiji.
