For the second time in less than one month, the Lagos State House of Assembly has summoned the immediate past governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode, to appear before it and give an account of his stewardship in office.
The assembly, in a letter of invitation published in The Nation, asked the former governor to appear before the committee of the house by 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, to give details of financial transactions under his watch.
Ambode has been under the lawmakers’ searchlight in recent times.
The House had earlier this month invited some former commissioners that served in the last administration in the state to give vivid accounts of government’s expenditures including the purchase of 820 mass transit buses for the state.
The invitation titled: “Notice of summons: Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode (the former Governor of Lagos State),” was signed by the Clerk of the House, Mr. A. A. Sanni.
