There’s confusion in Ondo State House of Assembly on Tuesday as the state House of Assembly served the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Agboola Ajayi, the impeachment notice over allegation of gross misconduct.
Nine members of the Ondo State House of Assembly have dissociated themselves from the ongoing impeachment proceedings against the Deputy Governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi.
The nine lawmakers in a joint letter written to the Speaker, said their decision to backtrack from the impeachment proceedings against the Deputy Governor was based on personal convictions.
TheNewsGuru.com TNG reports that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy have been locked in a political battle that recently saw the deputy governor cross carpet from the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) to main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Meanwhile, checks by TNG revealed that the assembly comprising of 26 members including the principal officers might constitute a quorum needed to continue with the impeachment proceedings despite withdrawal of these nine members loyal to the embattled deputy governor if the remaining 17 members give their consent.
