Oyo Assembly impeaches dep gov

As Makinde likely to swear in new deputy

The Oyo State House of Assembly on Monday finally impeached the state’s deputy governor, Rauf Olaniyan, over allegations of gross misconduct and financial irregularities during his tenure.


The Assembly in its emergency session recommended that after considering the report of the seven-member panel set up by the state Chief Justice to investigate the allegations of gross misconduct against the deputy governor, it found him guilty of all charges.


The recommendations further read, “I hereby recommend to the House of Assembly, pursuant to Section 188 (19) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), that the Deputy Governor of Oyo State, His Excellency, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan, be removed from office with effect from today, Monday, July 18, 2022.”


The governor, Seyi Makinde, is expected to announce the name of the new deputy governor to be sworn in with immediate effect as the assembly is set to reconvene in the next few hours.
