JUST IN: Lagos lawmakers move against Gov Ambode

The Lagos State House of Assembly has begun a debate to impeach Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The Assembly alleged that the governor was spending money which had not been appropriated by the legislative arm of government.

Ambode has come under heat in recent times over allegations that he was secretly funding the campaign of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Jimi Agbaje.

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.

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.

Ambode is also accused of moving against the APC’s attempt to make a former Chief Security Officer to Tinubu, Mr. Kayode Egbetokun, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos and insisting that his secondary school classmate, Imohimi Edgal, remains the CP.
