THE Ondo state House of Assembly has dismissed reports that it planned to impeach the state deputy governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
Speculation was rife within and outside the state that the assembly would soon commence the impeachment process.
Recall that the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, a few days after returning from medical vacation, sacked all the media aides attached to the office of the deputy governor for alleged insubordination.
Their sack was contained in a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, in Akure.
Aides sacked include:, Press Secretary to the Governor, Kenneth Odusola; Special Assistant to Governor (New Media) Okunniga Oladipupo; and Special Assistant to the Governor (Photography) Abayomi Samson Adefolalu.
The Press Crew attached to the office of the deputy governor was disbanded.
Akeredolu, directed the ministry of Information and Orientation to henceforth provide adequate coverage for the activities of the deputy governor office.
Speaking on the plot by the assembly to impeach the deputy governor, the Speaker, Rt Hon. Olamide Oladiji, said that ” there’s no underground plot to impeach the deputy governor.
Oladiji said that ” 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.”
