There are indications that the Ondo State House of Assembly has commenced the process of impeaching Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
This is coming following an emergency plenary session summoned by the House of Assembly.
Already, there is heavy presence of security men at the Assembly gate.
According to sources within the Assembly, 23 lawmakers have already signed the impeachment notice against Aiyedatiwa.
The Deputy Governor is under investigation for alleged gross misuse of office.
According to the source, trouble started when Aiyedatiwa reportedly approved the sum of N300 million for the purchase of a bulletproof SUV for his personal use.
This approval was allegedly given while the state Governor was recuperating in Germany.
Further complicating matters, it was learnt that Aiyedatiwa ordered the N300 million to be sourced from the Palliative fund.
This fund, provided by the Federal government, was intended to support states in addressing the needs of their citizens.
The source said the impeachment proceedings underscore the Assembly’s commitment to accountability, even at the highest levels of state governance.
Further developments in this case are awaited as the situation continues to unfold.
