They are alleging gross misconduct and abuse of office.

In a live stream monitored by DAILY POST, the lawmakers listed some of the Ambode’s alleged offences.

It was then agreed that a list will be drawn and forwarded to the governor, who is expected to give answers within a stipulated period.

On of those who spoke and Majority Leader, Sanai Agunbiade (APC), Ikorodu constituency 1, said the House would follow the rules in the process.

Drama between the executive and the legislature started last Monday when increased security presence at the Assembly raised speculation that Ambode was set to officially present the state’s 2019 budget proposals.
