Nigeria: News of Plans to Impeach Ambode Not True - Lagos Assembly

Lagos State’s House of Assembly has responded to the news of the impending impeachment of the sitting state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode. The news was refuted by Musibau Razak, the Chief Press Secretary to the speaker.

According to Razak, there was no rift between the Speaker and the Governor. He described the relationship between the two as smooth and solid”.

He went on to say “The news of impeachment is political. A lot of information is being circulated here and there but there is no iota of truth in the report.

“Claims to initiate impeachment proceedings against Governor Ambode are false as the relationship between the Governor and Speaker is smooth and solid.”

Despite this claim, the media is awash with the news of Ambode’s fall out of favour with Bola Ahmen Tinubu, regarded as the kingmaker in Lagos. According to news making the rounds, Tinubu has chosen Jide Sanyaolu Sanwonolu and is backed by practically all the council chairmen who are simply following whatever Tinubu says.

The days ahead will reveal more.
