Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday evening began moves to impeach Governor Akinwumi Ambode over alleged gross misconduct.
Lawmakers in the Lagos state house of assembly have accused Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of the state, of incurring expenditure from the 2019 budget without presenting it to the assembly.
At plenary on Monday, the aggrieved lawmakers gave the governor a week ultimatum to explain his action, saying failure to do so could trigger impeachment proceedings.
Majority of the lawmakers at the plenary called for the impeachment of the governor while a few asked him to resign.
But Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker, appealed to his colleagues to give the governor the last chance to defend himself.
Ambode controversially lost the APC governorship ticket to Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the party primaries that held in October last year.
