Ogun, Imo Impeach Deputy Speaker, Majority Leader Respectively

Ogun State Assembly has impeached its Deputy Speaker  Dare Kadiri for what it described as gross misconduct.

Before Kadiri was impeached as deputy speaker, he got there as the representative of Ijebu North State Constituency II.

Kadiri was impeached Thursday morning during plenary after no fewer than 22 lawmakers signed a petition for his removal.

Meanwhile, Kadiri was expected to respond in writing to the Investigation Committee headed by Hon. Yusuff Sherrif.

In a similar trend,  the Imo State House of Assembly, Owerri, on Thursday,  impeached their majority leader, Uche Ogbuagu.

The impeachment move started when Ogbuagu, who represents the Ikeduru state constituency, defected to the All Progressives Congress from Peoples Democratic Party.

The defection took place shortly after Emeka Ihedioha was removed in January 2020 by the Supreme Court as governor in order to emerge a principal officer of the house.

The speaker, Paul Emezim, who was presiding the plenary announced that the majority leader of the house had been impeached.
