Court Grants Oyo Assembly Permission To Remove Deputy Gov From Office


The Oyo State High Court presided over by Justice Ladiran Akintola has dismissed the suit filed by the State Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniyan, to stop the House of Assembly from removing him from office.

Justice Akintola, in a judgment delivered on Thursday morning, held that the impeachment move initiated by the lawmakers had not violated the constitution in any way as it in line with the provisions of section 188 of the Constitution of Nigeria and therefore gave the lawmakers the permission to forge ahead with the impeachment process.

The House of Assembly dominated by the Peoples Democratic Party had initiated the impeachment move against Olaniyan following his defection from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress and also accuse him of financial recklessness, gross misconduct, and insubordination among other allegations.
