IMPEACHMENT PLOT: Ondo Deputy Governor drags Akeredolu, Assembly, CJ to court

The Deputy Governor of Ondo state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has approached the state High Court, sitting in Akure, to stop the impeachment process initiated by the State House of Assembly against him.


In suit No. AK/348/2023, filed on Monday, by Ebun Adenoruwa SAN, the embattled deputy governor, asked the court to stop the impeachment process against him pending the hearing and determination of the suit that he has filed in court.


The state house of assembly began the process of impeachment of the deputy governor last week, as it wrote a letter to Aiyedatiwa, over an allegation of gross misconduct, while he was in office as an acting governor.
