- Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker of the state Assembly, made this known through his chief press secretary, Musibau Razak
- Razak noted that the relationship between the governor and speaker is smooth and solid
Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly, has denied speculation trending on social media that the state Assembly is planning to impeach the state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
Daily Trust reports that Obasa on Tuesday, September 11, made this known through his chief press secretary, Musibau Razak.
Razak maintained that the speculation that claimed that the speaker had written Governor Ambode not to go ahead with the plans to buy the nomination form of the APC to re-contest his seat for second term is a blatant lie.
Razak further noted that the relationship between the governor and speaker is “smooth and solid.”
According to him, “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.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that a day after Governor Akinwunmi Ambode officially declared his bid for a second term, reports filtered in that there is a threat to impeach the governor.
The impeachment threat is not unconnected to an alleged ongoing rift between Ambode and the APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Recall that Ambode had on Monday, September 10, obtained his expression of interest and nomination forms at the APC national secretariat in Abuja.
