Ondo Assembly has vowed to follow all due processes to see the impeachment processes it commenced against Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa to a logical end.
It said it never suspended the impeachment process.
The Ondo Assembly said its decision to carry on the impeachment process to a logical conclusion was to determine the veracity or otherwise of the allegations of gross misconduct against Aiyedatiwa.
Counsel to the Assembly, Femi Emodamori, in a statement in Akure, said the Assembly has meticulously complied with the constitutional provisions leading up to the obligation placed on the State Chief Judge to set up a seven-man panel to investigate the allegations, as stipulated in Section 188(5) of the Constitution.
Emodamori said notice of allegations of gross misconduct was signed by eleven members of the House.
He said the Assembly would take necessary legal steps to vacate or quash the order and/or the entire suit at the Federal High Court, in order to untie the hands of the Ondo Chief Judge, Justice Olusegun Odusola and proceed with the impeachment to a logical conclusion.
“The general public would recall that a similar suit instituted by the same Deputy Governor on the same subject matter at the Ondo State High Court was dismissed on 10th October, 2023 for constituting an abuse of Court process, following a preliminary objection which we filed on behalf of our Client,” he said.
