Impeachment: CJ rejects Assembly’s request to constitute panel against Deputy Governor

Ondo State Chief Judge, Justice Oluwatoyin Akeredolu, has rejected a request to set up a probe panel from the Ondo House of Assembly
against the deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, over allegations of gross misconduct.

Speaker of the Ondo Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, had on Thursday written to the Chief Judge to set up a seven-man panel to investigate Ajayi with the aim to impeach him from office.

A documents signed by the Chief Judge, stating her position on why the the letter was rejected.

The CJ said the assembly has not fulfilled constitutional requirements of two-third majority. She said she therefore cannot go ahead as the requirements have not been met.
