Dino Melaye Reacts To Kogi Deputy Governor Impeachment




Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West) has condemned the impeachment of the Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Simon Achuba.

Naija News had reported that Achuba was on Friday impeached by the Kogi State House of Assembly.

Speaking to newsmen after the impeachment, Majority Leader of the House, Hassan Bello Abdullahi (APC-Ajaokuta), said the House received a report from a panel of inquiry and acted accordingly.

In the panel report sighted by Naija News, the impeached Kogi Deputy Governor was accused of financial misappropriation, “deliberate disdain” for decisions of Kogi executive council and absconding from official duties among others.

Reacting to the impeachment of Achuba in a post on Twitter, Dino Melaye described it as a constitutional vandalism.

“Illegal removal of Kogi Deputy Governor by the carry go House of Assembly after a clean bill of health by the panel is constitutional vandalism,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, the governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has picked his running mate for the November 16 governorship election in the state, Edward Onoja, to replace Achuba.
