Kogi State House of Assembly on Wednesday started the process for the impeachment of the Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba.
The impeachment notice was read by the majority leader of the House, Abdullahi Bello (Ajaokuta, APC) as a petition on the floor of the Assembly.
He said the petition was based on three grounds of criminal indulgence, financial misappropriation and non-performance.
Bello added that 21 out of the 25 lawmakers had signed the petition.
The speaker, Kolawole Matthew asked that the petition be served on the deputy governor for him to respond to within the 14 days time frame of the law.
He also said a panel will be set up to investigate Achuba’s side of the story.
