Ondo State House of Assembly has denied collecting any bribe from Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to impeach his deputy, Agboola Ajayi.
Ajayi had in a statement on Tuesday by his Deputy Chief Press Secretary, Tope Okeowo, alleged that 26 lawmakers of the state House of Assembly collected N10 million each to “illegally” impeach the deputy governor.
But the Speaker of the assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, said that the allegation was baseless and unfounded.
He stressed that none of the 26 lawmakers had been induced or bribed by anyone as alleged by the deputy governor.
“The statement is madness. There is nothing like that. Nobody has collected any Kobo to impeach anyone,” he said.
Recall that Ajayi had officially resigned from ruling All Progressives Congress and defected to the main opposition People’s Democratic Party last Monday.
