An impeachment proceeding has been launched by Kogi State Assembly against Deputy Governor Simon Achuba following his recent face-off with Governor Yahaya Bello.
Recall that Simon Achuba had few weeks ago accused Yahaya Bello of failing to pay an accumulated sum of N819,709,980 owed to him.
The impeachment process was reportedly initiated after 21 members of the House signed a petition which was presented during plenary on Wednesday August 7, by the Majority Leader Abdullahi Bello who represents Ajaokuta constituency. The Deputy Governor was accused of criminal indulgence, financial misappropriation and non-performance.
Bello backed the impeachment notice by citing section 188 of the 1999 constitution and also called on the House to commence an investigation into the allegations.
