Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Lagos State House of Assembly is holding deliberations to impeach the current governor, Akinwumi Ambode, Today’s Echo has learnt.

According to TVC, the house is currently holding a plenary session; the governor has been accused of gross misconduct.

Ambode has been in the eye of the storm in recent times since his godfather and former governor, Bola Tinubu refused to support his campaign for second term and instead propped up a relatively unknown Jide Sanwo-Olu to become the State’s gubernatorial candidate.

Today’s Echo gathers from an anonymous source that the major issue may be the budget.

“This move has been going on underground for a while, seems the house is ready or has been give a go ahead to unseat him, ” says the source

The source revealed that the house feels since he the governor is on his way out, majority of the contracts in the budget should benefit them.

” Since they feel he doesn’t wield much power these days, he should dance to their tune ( they have held this impeachment axe over him for a long time as a tool to get what they want).
Those who know the governor knows he’s a strong headed & stubborn man, he doesn’t want to give the house contracts … all… as a means of pay-back for the gubernitorial ticket he lost , ……..the house also is not ready to receive any budget that doesn’t favour their pockets….. they have all the backing the need….” the source continued.

More details to comeup shortly
