Ambode: Tinubu, other Lagos APC Leaders resolve impeachment crisis
The impeachment crisis hovering over the head of the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has been resolved following a meeting between the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and other leaders of the party in the state.
The Lagos State House of Assembly had threatened to commence impeachment proceedings against Mr Ambode over allegations of illegal budgetary spendings and gross misconduct.
Mr Ambode is yet to present the 2019 budget before the lawmakers.
A statement made available to reporters on Sunday said a special Governor’s Advisory Committee (GAC) held a meeting in Marina, Lagos, where the issues between the two parties were resolved.
“We held a meeting on behalf of entire Lagosians,” Mr Tinubu was quoted as saying in the statement.
“In the last one week or so, there has been some talk about a conflict between the Executive and the Legislature in Lagos. This is of great concern to us.
“We looked at the source of the conflict, which is normal in a democracy, and that is why there are also conflict-resolution mechanisms.”
