Ondo State House of Assembly has suspended the impeachment process against the embattled deputy governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

This was sequel to the refusal of the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Olusegun Odusola, to set up a panel to investigate the allegations of gross misconduct against the deputy governor.


Odusola had declined following an interim order halting the process by the Federal high court in Abuja.

The house took the decision to suspend the process at its sitting in Akure, the state capital.

Spokesperson of the assembly, Hon Olatunji Oshati, said that the lawmakers will comply with the order and halt further proceedings on the impeachment. According to him, “This is to show that it is not about witch-hunting, it is about carrying out our oversight functions. “We have considered the letter which is everywhere in the public domain and we are halting the impeachment process until the order of the Federal High Court is vacated.

“It is not about being arrogant with power, it is about holding public officers accountable. “It also shows that the process of impeachment transcends the monopoly of the legislature as we can see that the judiciary has stalled it.”

The party’s peace reconciliation committee set by the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is expected to turn in its report on Friday.

The Committee, chaired by a former governor of Katsina State, Hon. Aminu Bello Masari, was mandated to not only intervene, but also see to the peaceful reconciliation of all parties involved.

National secretariat of the party said it “was really concerned about the unfortunate political situation in Ondo State, which if not quickly averted, may lead to further disaffection among party faithful”.

It noted that “after critical observation of the situation, the National Secretariat has decided to wade in, with a view to foster better understanding that may likely lead to amicable resolution.
