Amidst calls for the impeachment of Kogi State Governor Usman Ododo by human rights lawyer Deji Ajare, an aide to the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Mohammed Yabagi, has rebuffed the notion, stating there are no grounds for such action.

Ajare had penned a letter to the Speaker, Umar Yusuf, urging him to initiate impeachment proceedings against Governor Ododo over allegations of misconduct and misuse of office.


These allegations stemmed from the Governor’s alleged involvement in ferrying away the embattled former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, amidst an ongoing EFCC investigation.

Yabagi clarified that neither the Speaker nor the House had received such a letter.

He emphasized that there was no tangible evidence to support claims that Governor Ododo obstructed justice or misused state resources by assisting Bello’s departure from his residence.

“The House has not seen any reason to commence any impeachment processes,” asserted Yabagi. “There is no concrete evidence that the executive Governor prevented security agencies from carrying out their constitutional duties.”

Yabagi further underscored the Assembly’s support for all constitutionally recognized security agencies, indicating a lack of substantial grounds to warrant impeachment proceedings against Governor Ododo.

Efforts to obtain comments from the Special Adviser on Media to the Kogi State Governor, Ismaila Isah, were unsuccessful, as his contact number remained inaccessible.

As the debate over the Governor’s actions continues, the Kogi State House of Assembly is awaiting concrete evidence before considering any further action against Governor Ododo.
