The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ondo State Chapter, has announced the arrival of the impeached deputy governor of the state, Ali Olanusi, from his overseas medical trip.

Olanusi was impeached by the State House of Assembly over alleged gross misconduct and replaced by Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo.

He  had written to the State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko, on his preparation to travel abroad in order to attend to his health challenges.

Olanusi who has been appointed as a member of the APC Board of Trustees has approached the law court to challenge his removal from office.

A statement issued by the APC State Publicity Secretary, Om’oba Abayomi Adesanya, however said Olanusi is expected to return to his duty post as his impeachment was illegal.

“We want to reiterate that Olanusi’s Impeachment was illegal, null and void. It is an affront to the spirit and letters of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended,” the APC said.
