Ambode Fails To Honour Calls By Lagos Assembly Probe Panel



Lagos Assembly Ambode

The immediate past Governor of Lagos state , Akinwunmi Ambode has continually ignored the calls by the House of Assembly ad-hoc Committee probing the activities of his administration.

Naija News learnt the call by the ad-hoc committee was based on the preliminary report of a nine-man ad-hoc committee to probe the 820 buses purchased by the ex-governor.

Reacting to the dishonouring attitude of the governor, Speaker Mudasiru Obasa vowed that if the ex-governor fails to appear after a public invitation through newspaper publications the House would issue a warrant of arrest on him.

Naija News leanrt that some of the ex- commissioners stated the former Governor carried out major activities without their knowledge, claiming to be mere figureheads.

Former Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget Olusegun Banjo revealed that the purchase of the 820 buses by Ambode “was not rooted through its ministry.”

Banjo, who stated that he became commissioner in February 2018, said he followed the system he met on ground, which according to him was responsible for shady transactions on the buses that were procured.
