Kogi Assembly Impeaches Deputy Governor Achuba

The Kogi state House of Assembly has impeached the Deputy Governor of the state, Simon Achuba, Naijaparry reports.

Achuba’s impeachment followed the submission of a report of a committee set up by the State Chief Judge, Justice Nasir Ajana, to investigate an allegation of gross misconduct against him.

It was learned that a seven-man committee headed by John Bayeshea submitted the report to the Speaker of the House, Mathew Kolawole, before Achuba was impeached.

Achuba was sworn in as the Deputy Governor on 9 February, after defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

But the two men later fell out, with Achuba, in August 2019, raising an alarm of an alleged threat to his life as he accused Bello of intolerance of contrary views.

He also criticised Bello’s administration for non-performance, claiming that was the reason for the rift between him and the governor.

Members of the Assembly said the action of Achuba was gross misconduct against Bello and the people of Kogi State.

The Assembly had, thereafter, directed the Chief Judge in the state to set up a committee to proceed with the impeachment of Achuba.
