Kogi Assembly plans to impeach Deputy Governor Simon Achuba

Kogi State Assembly has kicked off plans against Deputy Governor Simon Achuba following his recent face-off with Governor Yahaya Bello. 

An impeachment proceeding has been launched and 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.

 Few weeks ago, Simon Achuba had accused Yahaya Bello of failing to pay an accumulated sum of N819,709,980 owed to him.

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.
