BREAKING: Pro-Ambode group storms Lagos Assembly, protests planned impeachment
#1
Samson Folarin
A group of protesters on Wednesday
stormed the Lagos State House of
Assembly to protest against the planned
impeachment of the state Governor ,
Akinwunmi Ambode .
The men and women , who carried
banners with inscriptions of their
agitations , said the removal of Ambode
would disrupt the peaceful conduct of
the general elections.
They asked the lawmakers to allow the
governor complete his tenure.
The Assembly had accused the governor
of gross misconduct and illegally
spending from the 2019 budget , which
had yet to be approved.
They had given the governor seven days
to defend the allegations or risk
impeachment .
Police vans were mounted at the
entrance to the Assembly on
Wednesday, as the protesters stood
outside, singing solidarity songs.
One of the men , who identified himself
as Jimoh , said Ambode did not deserve
the treatment being meted out to him .
He said , “ I am concerned as a Lagosian.
His performance is visible. They should
leave him alone . I was not paid to come
for this protest . Nobody gave me
anything . They should just allow him
complete his tenure, which ends in a
few months time. ”
Our correspondent observed as of 11am
that the number of the protesters keeps
swelling.
