The Ondo State House of Assembly has denied collecting money to impeach the state’s deputy governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi.
NAN reports that the Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the deputy governor, Mr. Tope Okeowo had, earlier on Tuesday, alleged that 26 lawmakers of the state House of Assembly collected N10 million each to ‘illegally’ impeach the deputy governor.
NAN also reports that Hon. Ajayi had officially decamped from All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday.
But reacting to the allegation, Speaker of the state’s Assembly, Mr. Bamidele Oleyelogun, told NAN on telephone, on Tuesday, that the allegation was baseless, adding that no lawmaker had been induced.
“The statement is madness. There is nothing like that. Nobody has collected any Kobo to impeach anyone,” he said.
