Lagos State Governor Faces Impeachment

Lagos State House of Assembly members, on Monday began impeachment proceedings against Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.


Gross misconduct and abuse of office were the allegations placed against the Governor.

Ambode has been accused by The Assembly of misappropriation of bills and spending money that haz not been approved by the legislative arm of the government.

Some threats were made against the governor in October last year after the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress which Ambode lost to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the preferred candidate of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

It was alleged by some chieftains of the APC that Ambode was aggrieved by the outcome of the primary and that funds were being diverted through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to fund Agbaje’s campaign.

Ambode who won the Lagos Governorship election under APC has been recently accused of sponsoring the campaign of the Governorship aspirant of rivals PDP, Mr Jimi Agbaje.


The governor, however, pledged his loyalty to the party, denying allegations of treachery. Ambode broke with tradition last year when he failed to submit the state budget before the entire House. The state government had claimed that the budget was privately submitted to the House, a report which many of the lawmakers have denied.

It was then agreed that a list will be drawn and forwarded to the governor who is expected to give answers within a stipulated period.

On of those who spoke, Sani Agunbiade, Ikorodu constituency 1, said the House would follow the rules in the process.
