Ondo Deputy governor asks court to stop planned impeachment


The deputy governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, has filed a suit before the Federal High Court, Abuja, asking it to stop the state House of Assembly from impeaching him.

Lawmakers at the Ondo state House of Assembly earlier today served Ajayi an impeachment notice on allegations of gross misconduct.

The impeachment notice was signed by fourteen lawmakers at the state House of Assembly.

Listed as defendants in the suit are; the House of Assembly, the Inspector General of Police, the State Commissioner of Police, Department of State Services and the Speaker of the Assembly, Mr David Oleyeloogun.

The move is coming days after the Deputy governor defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ajayi who has fallen out with the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has also indicated interest to run against him in the forthcoming October governorship poll.

    Deputy governor Agbola Ajayi, should know better that once you quit APC that elected you you can not continue to serve as deputy governor of Ondo State, as a PDP new member. Agbola Ajayi, is a goner.

    What did former deputy governor Agboola Ajayi, achieved having served as Ondo State deputy governor, to governor Rotimi Akeredolu, since the last four years, that attracted him to the PDP. Agboola Ajayi, is a certify non-viable politician, who did not contribute anything to the public facilities developmental projects in Ondo State throughout his tenure.
