Governor Dapo Abiodun and his Deputy, Nomiot Salako-Oyedele were asked to be impeached by Ogun State Assembly. The New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) has sent allegation to Assembly to commence impeachment processes against Governor.
The NNPP on Thursday said it was highly disturbed and worried by the “lackadaisical attitude of the Dapo Abiodun’s administration since inception.
The party requested that the duo of Abiodun and his Deputy be impeached for leaving the country at the same time.
The opposition party had earlier stormed the Assembly Complex at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, to submit its petition to the lawmakers.
According to the petition signed by the party’s State Chairman, Olaposi Oginni, the party described Abiodun as an “accidental governor”, saying he was never prepared to govern Ogun State.
The petition titled, “Immediate Impeachment Processes Against Gov Dapo Abiodun And His Deputy”, partly read:
“The Ogun State Chapter of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) is hereby calling for the immediate action of IMPEACHMENT NOTICE against Gov.Dapo Abiodun and his Deputy, Engr. Naimot Salako, by the provision of the Act of the Parliament.
“The recent abdication and dereliction of duties by Gov Dapo Abiodun and his Deputy are unpardonable impeachable offences.
“It’s on record that from May 2019 to date, all the medical and leisure vacation trips of Gov Dapo Abiodun, except one, were in flagrant disobedience of the constitutional provision that made the transmission of a letter to Ogun State House of Assembly mandatory.
“It’s also on record that the recent trip of Gov Dapo Abiodun violated his oath of office and therefore deserved to be impeached for his failure to transmit a letter to the OGUN STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY and subsequent failure to transmit power to the Deputy Governor to be in charge as an Acting Governor during the time of his absence.”
Oginni added that “the executive rascality of unceremoniously making the SSG to act and to direct the affairs of Ogun State is unacceptable because it’s at sharp contradiction to the constitution the government swore to protect.”
He added, “Recognizing the fact that Prince Dapo Abiodun was an accidental Governor who never prepared himself for governance, however, it’s ridiculous that Gov Dapo Abiodun and his aides at intervals rush to a serving Lagos Senator, Adeola Olamilekan Yayi, to take briefs and instructions on how to run Ogun State.
“The Ogun State House of Assembly must help us to find out when and how Ogun State became a Lagos colony under Prince Dapo Abiodun.
“It’s very obvious that Ogun State is presently rudderless. The permanent solution to this mediocrity is for the Ogun State House of Assembly to do the needful as far as this impeachment process is concerned,” Oginni maintained.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner for Information in Ogun, Waheed Odusile, has said the Governor and his Deputy handed over to the Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, before their trip to London.
Odusile said the governor could run the State from his destination in London.
