Impeachment threat: Ambode, lawmakers lock horns
FOLLOWING moves by members of the Lagos State House of Assembly to impeach Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, a web of intrigues, yesterday, surfaced over the current face-off between the two arms of government.
The obviously frosty relationship between the Executive and the Legislative arms of the government further nose-dived as the lawmakers’ reconvened sitting, on Monday, with a move to impeach Governor Ambode over financial misconduct and violation of the 1999 Constitution.
Members of the state House of Assembly have been variously speculated to have unresolved issues with Ambode.
A source told Vanguard that the feud has led to a division in the Assembly.
