The Ondo State House of Assembly has on Monday morning impeached the state’s Deputy Governor, Ali Olanusi.

Olanisi’s impeachment followed the submission of a report by a seven-man panel headed by Olatunji Adeniyan on the allegations levelled against him.

He was ordered to vacate the Government Lodge, which he occupies, and return all government property in his possession to the Permanent Secretary in his office.

Twenty-two out of the 26 lawmakers in the House supported the motion for his impeachment, which was moved by the Majority Leader, Ifedayo Akinsoyinu, from Ondo West 11 and seconded by Olatunji Dauro from Owo 11.

Olanusi was impeached due to allegations bordering on gross misconduct and abuse of office. Details later.
