The Lagos State House of Assembly has begun a debate to impeach the governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode.
The Assembly alleged that the governor was spending money which had not been appropriated by the legislative arm of government.
Some people have accused the governor of secretly funding the campaign of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje.
Some threats were made against the governor in October last year after the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress which Ambode lost to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the preferred candidate of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu
It was alleged by some chieftains of the APC that Ambode was aggrieved by the outcome of the primary and that funds were being diverted through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to fund Agbaje’s campaign.
The governor, however, pledged his loyalty to the party, denying allegations of treachery.
Ambode broke with tradition last year when he failed to submit the state budget before the entire House.
The state government had claimed that the budget was privately submitted to the House, a report which many of the lawmakers have denied.
