Trololo! Lagos Assembly Moves To Impeach Ambode
The lawmakers at its plenary on Monday evening accused the governor of committing atrocities bordering on gross misconduct and spending budget that had not been laid before the House or approved by the Assembly.
Out of the 34 lawmakers who spoke at the plenary, 28 of them called for the impeachment of the governor while six others called on the governor to resign.
Also, the lawmakers, through a voice vote stood for the impeachment of the governor.
Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa said there was need for the House to give Ambode a last chance to appear before the House to explain the allegations and infractions levelled against him.
He said the Assembly has given the governor one week to appear before it to explain his own side of the story or faced impeachment.
Obasa, therefore, asked the lawmaker who still wanted the governor to be impeached to start gathering signatures.
The lawmakers, therefore, agreed to summon the governor, the Commissioners for Finance; Economic Planning and Budget and the Attorney General to appear at their next meeting on Monday.
