No plan to impeach Lagos gov for now, says Speaker



The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly , Mudashiru Obasa , says there is no plan to impeach Governor Akinwunmi Ambode .
Obasa , who stated this during the Monday plenary of the Assembly , said those that said he threatened to initiate impeachment proceedings against the governor if he failed to open the state ’ s treasury , were imagining things .

He said . “ This allegation is frivolous and misleading . We need to clear the air on this fabrication that has been making the rounds both online and other media outlets that the Assembly is planning to impeach the governor .
“ For now , the House is not planning to impeach Governor Ambode and if this will happen , it has to be done the right way .

“ We don’ t need wailers to tell us how to go about our legislative duties . We are not planning to impeach Governor Ambode and even if the house is planning to do that , it won ’ t be done in secrecy as impeachment is constitutional and democratic . ”

Obasa , however , said there was nothing of such for now as the House was working hand – in -hand with the governor to move the state forward .
