The ‘ousted’ Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly Honourable Momoh Jimoh, Friday announced plan to serve an impeachment notice on the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Simon Achuba. Addressing newsmen in Abuja, Jimoh who was ‘impeached’ by five members of the assembly on Tuesday said Achuba has questions to answer over the crisis in the legislature.
He denounced his impeachment by the five legislators and insinuated that they were sponsored by vested interests. Jimoh also announced the suspension of the five members who announced his impeachment saying their action violated the rules of the House as the five members failed to form a quorum before announcing his impeachment.
The five lawmakers in a 20-member House sat on Tuesday and purportedly removed the Speaker.
