Ondo Chief Judge shuns impeachment letter says matter already a subject of litigation

The Chief Judge of Ondo State, Justice Oluwatoyin Akeredolu has faulted a letter written by the House of Assembly for the setting up of the seven-man panel to probe the State Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi over the impeachable offences levelled against him.

Fourteen lawmakers in the state house of assembly had served the Deputy Governor notice of impeachment during the week.

The Chief Judge hinged her decision on the fact that the figure required by the 1999 constitution for setting up of such a probe panel has not been met.

 14 out of the 26 members of the Assembly signed the impeachment notice with nine members kicking against the impeachment plot.

The nine lawmakers have also written a letter to the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Akeredolu dissociating themselves from the ongoing plans to impeach the deputy governor of the state.

The Chief Judge in her letter, said the matter of impeachment was already a subject of litigation.
