Lagos Speaker Reacts To Alleged Move To Impeach Ambode

The Lagos State House of Assembly has denied any plot to impeach Governor Akimwunmi Ambode. Speaker Mudashiru Obasa said the House has a cordial relationship with the governor at the moment.

Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Musibau Razak, Obasa said there was no iota of truth in the rumour trending in the media.

Reports had emerged on Tuesday that Bola Tinunu's boys had told Ambode not to submit the nomination form of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to re-contest his seat for second term.

They were said to have told the governor not to re-contest or risk being impeached through the House of Assembly if he goes ahead with the plans.

But Razak insisted that the relationship between the governor and speaker remains “smooth and solid”.

“This is political. Lot of information are being circulated here and there but there is no iota of truth in the report. The relationship between the Governor and Speaker is smooth and solid,” Razak said.
