Trouble for Akeredolu’s deputy as Ondo Assembly begins impeachment process

Aiyedatiwa was accused of committing gross misconduct while in office as the acting governor.

The Ondo State House of Assembly has reportedly begun the impeachment process of Lucky Aiyedatiwa, the Deputy Governor of the state.

According to ThePunch, the House accused Aiyedatiwa of gross misconduct while in office as the acting governor.

During their plenary session on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, the lawmakers asked Benjamin Jaiyeola, the Clark of the House to inform the Deputy Governor about the allegations levelled against him.

The petition against Aiyedatiwa was read during the plenary presided by the Speaker of the House, Olamide Oladiji.

Nine out of 26 members of the House have reportedly signed the petition.

Politicians loyal to Akeredolu also accused the Deputy Governor of plotting against his principal while acting as Governor.

Recall that Aiyedatiwa was acting governor of the state for three months when Akeredolu left the country for Germany where he was hospitalised for an undisclosed ailment.

After returning to Nigeria, Akeredolu sacked all the media aides to the deputy governor.
