Ondo Assembly denies collecting money to impeach Deputy Gov.


The Ondo State House of Assembly has denied collecting money to impeach the state Deputy Gov. Agboola Ajayi.

Our Correspondent reports that Mr Tope Okeowo, the Deputy Chief Press Secretary, had earlier on Tuesday alleged that 26 lawmakers of the state House of Assembly collected N10 million each to “illegally”impeach the deputy governor.

It would be recalled that Ajayi had officially decamped from All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday.

The Speaker of the assembly, Rt Hon Bamidele Oleyelogun told our Correspondent on telephone on Tuesday that the allegation was baseless, adding that no lawmaker had been induced.

“The statement is madness. There is nothing like that. Nobody has collected any Kobo to impeach anyone,” he said.
