The Ondo State House of Assembly has reportedly started the impeachment process of the deputy governor of the state, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa over alleged gross misconduct.

OSUN DEFENDER gathered that some lawmakers have signed the impeachment notice against the deputy governor.


Report emerged that an emergency plenary session was summoned by the assembly leadership and the presence of heavy security operatives at the Assembly gate yesterday.

A source told newsmen that the deputy governor is under investigation for alleged gross misuse of office.

It was alleged that Aiyedatiwa while he was the acting governor, following the medical vacation of the governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, he reportedly approved N300 million for the purchase of a bulletproof SUV for his personal use.

Recall that the governor travelled to Germany for medical treatment for three months.

Aiyedatiwa was alleged to have ordered the N300 million to be sourced from the Palliative fund, which was from the Federal government to the state in order to cushion the effect of the removal of fuel subsidy.

Recall that the governor had sacked all the media aides attached to the deputy governor over alleged insubordination.

Rumours of the underground plot to impeach the deputy governor were rife after the sack of his aides by the governor.

However, this development was coming days after the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Rt Hon Olamide Oladiji, dismissed that there was a plot to impeach the deputy governor.

Oladiji said that ”there’s no underground plot to impeach the deputy governor.

”There is nothing like that, you know the social media can write anything they like, but it is not true.

”Nothing like that is going on. As I am talking to you, I’m in Abuja for the Speakers’ conference. So, there is nothing like that.”
