Court stops impeachment of Ondo State Deputy Governor

A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Tuesday restrained the Ondo State House of Assembly from impeaching the Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, over alleged gross misconduct.

Justice Emeka Nwite gave the order in a ruling shortly after Aiyedatiwa’s counsel, Kayode Adewusi, moved the ex-parte motion to the effect.

The judge also restrained Governor Rotimi Akeredolu from nominating a new Deputy Governor and forwarded the same to the lawmakers for approval pending the hearing and determination of the substantive matter.
