As regards the allegation of the illegal expenditure of the 2019 appropriation bills and Budget Presentation, the members of the Lagos State House of Assembly have given Governor of Lagos State – Akinwunmi Ambode a week to clear all allegations before the house decides on the proposed impeachment move against him.
Honorable Mudashiru Obasa stated this during the plenary session held on Monday, 28th of January, 2019
“Within a week, we can come back here and do whatever we want to do regarding those who are clamoring or who have asked for impeachment. And if by the end of the day, there is need to consider whatever response from them, then we can as well move forward,” Obasa said. He said the committee discovered that the 2019 Budget was already being implemented by the executive without being laid on the floor of the House. He also noted that 2018 budget, as of the 3rd quarter of 2018 had not performed up to 50 per cent.
He conclude saying “All the violations amount to gross misconduct. Section 188 subsection defines gross misconduct. We strongly believe that essential services that ought to be met are missing in the state. I am in line with the statement and decisions of the members that if the executive members are not ready for governance, they should resign or should be impeached.”
