The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, has refuted claims that the State Assembly is planning to impeach the State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, over his decision to seek re-election.
In a chat with DailyTrust, the Chief Press Secretary to the speaker, Musibau Razak, said there is no iota of truth in the speculation trending on social media and some online news websites that the Speaker was acting on instructions to initiate impeachment proceedings against Governor Ambode.
Responding to an inquiry made by DailyTrust, Razak said the relationship between the Governor and Speaker is “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.
There are claims that Bola Tinubu is against Ambode’s re-election bid and that there are plans to impeach Ambode for going against the former governor’s will.
